If the weather is very wet we can move the after ride event inside as there is plenty of room, but we have a marquee and gazeebos so will try to remain in the garden and the British weather is a very wonderful thing so it should be fine.




Short massages will be available from four local professional massage therapists.

EacIMG_4793h will offer different short massages at low cost. If you have never had had a massage then here’s your chance to find out more and have a try. If you get tired legs, an aching back or just want to relax try the massage zone.. More details to follow.
