Dont forget your horses passports please

We plan to resume hunting on 24th February, however we do require that all horses are vaccinated for flu according to the BHA requirements and ideally have had a booster within the last 6 months, they should also not have had the booster in the preceding 6 days. We also ask that you are vigilant and do not come if you have any doubts about any horse at your yard or any you have come into contact with and obviously that your horse has shown no signs of being off colour. Please bring your passports with you and these will be checked. Below is a very useful document from the British Equestrian Federation Please keep a very high level of vigilance for any respiratory symptoms. Monitoring your horse’s temperature twice a day, if safe to do so, is a sensible precaution.Equine_Flu_QA_090219_PDF

Report from Master Susan: The KSB Relay Team and hounds both had their second outing at the South of England show earlier in the month.
The team consisting of Hatty, Freddie, Katie and PhilIp did a fabulous job on the Friday and despite two very exciting heats were unfortunately beaten both times. The coakham who we were up against first did go on to eventually win. Thanks as always to the team, and their support entourage- while it is fun it is a lot of work… they had a couple of practices and had all the effort of tack and turn out before competing. In particular a massive thanks to Philip who stood in at the very last minute when both Susie’s horses were out of action. Their next outing is Peterborough 18th July- some hounds will be going too- it is quite a long way to go but if anyone wants to come -get in touch and we will try and sort lifts.
The hounds did a lovely little turn in the countryside alliance ring on the Saturday- it was the first appearance for some of last years new entrants but they were brilliantly behaved and we got lots of interest and sensible questions! The hounds next outing is this Sunday at Cranleigh – they are in the main ring at 11 and on foot in the smaller ring at 12. Again, once you’ve recovered from the party the night before.. do come and support us and join us for a picnic by the lorries at around 1 afterwards.

 So the hounds had their first hound parade at cow pie at the beginning of may. There was a little excitement as I inadvertently let a few escape when I went into their pen make a fuss of them… they were quickly repatriated back with the rest of the pack, before they managed to cause any carnage….
They were also very well behaved when they went into the ring, and as as always their was a lot of interest when the audience were invited to come in to meet them.
Thanks as always to everyone who came to help. by Master Susan 
The hounds next outing is at Cranleigh Show on 1st July


So the team had its first outing a few weeks back at larkhill…. its a long way to go and the horses had to be well turned out for tack and turnout… there was mumbles from one or two of getting up at quarter to five, others talked of a slightly more respectable time of quarter past six….. we all arrived with plenty of time to walk the course… to some it looked rather intimidating to others it looked like fun…. cleverly the water was optional…..
we never expect to do terribly well in the tack and turn out… and needless to say we didint win… but they do look smart nevertheless …. we were quite low down the order list but just as nerves were about to fail it was our turn…. the whole team did a fabulous first round… every horse jumping everything first time… check out the two videos curtesy of Mrs Ford… first three team members in one and the last one in the second one. But that round is just a trial and everyone gets through…. our next round was pretty good… one or two rounds were not as sharp as the first but we thought we were in with a chance of getting through to the next heat…. so we waited and we waited…… but no, we were not through to the next round…. we think there might have been a bit of fudging with the timing but we’d all had a fab day so had our customary glass of bubbly for the non drivers and started the long drive home.
