LAMBOURN OPEN DAY
Famous racehorses, past and present, trained in the Lambourn Valley, parade to bring back memories, with full commentary on their achievements.
Celebrity jockeys compete keenly against each other in a competition where the fences get higher in each jump off. No quarter given!
Hare & Hounds (Newbury) Bob Hogg displays his dogs, along with geese and ducks (avian flu regulations permitting), always entertaining and fun.
Heats and a final with participants chosen from Lambourn personalities and jockeys. Cheer on your favourites!
Children on ponies in thrilling, very competitive races over smaller versions of National Hunt fences.
Watch leading jockeys show how racehorses are schooled ready for the racecourse.
Bring your dog and enter the various classes. All dogs to be on leads at all times please. Entries on the day.
The Hunt show off their horses and hounds, with the chance for the public to go into the arena after the display to get close to them.
The Lambourn Equine Veterinary Hospital will be open from 10am-12.30pm. This might be open to change in case of an emergency.
A bottle of champagne and a prize from Lizzie’s Hots for the winner judged on the Open Day afternoon. Lizzie’s Hats in Lambourn, run by Richard Hughes’ wife, is the place for hiring hats. www.lizzieshats.com
