A Norfolk village is to stage its first ever horse show in aid of charity.
Bressingham Charity Horse Show will be held on Sunday August 3 at Poplar Farm in Bressingham.
Organised by Tracey Soar, 44, and Louise Nevard, 34, the show is in aid of Cancer Research and the East Anglian Children’s Hospice.
Ms Soar, who runs a bridalwear shop in Diss and whose parents own Poplar Farm, said: “We don’t have any horse shows in our area. We thought it would be nice for local people, especially with the price of diesel.
“There’ll be lots of prizes donated by local businesses and we hope to create a real village atmosphere.”
There will be showing and working hunter classes, in-hand, ridden and fun classes for the children.
The event is sponsored by the Tas Valley Riding Club, whose members will receive entry fees at a reduced rate.
A Sony digital camcorder has been donated by Midwich audio visual wholesalers for the Supreme Champion and local butcher, Cannells of Diss, will be running a barbeque.
Admission is free to spectators and classes begin at 9am. Full details at www.horsedates.co.uk <http://www.horsedates.co.uk/> Entries are accepted on the day.
