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.
Each 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.
