Stone Circle Livery day out at Hickstead

We all need a break now and then so we all headed off to Hickstead for the British Jump Derby Meeting. Ellen Whitaker put on an amazing display to take first for Great Britain on Henri De Here and the top prize of £6,000 in the Bunn Leisure Speed Derby. She is an amazing rider to see in action. Hickstead is so much more than a Derby Meeting and when it is under glorious sunshine it makes it a great day out. A hit for us were the carriage driving ponies. There are a few pictures here to give you the idea.Probably the best part of Hickstead is the atmosphere. People and horse all milling around together in open space. It is a very unique set up. Full results and future events can be found here.
