A Bank Holiday Weekend to remember…

One of the strengths of our UK Icelandic Horse Chat group is the support it offers our widespread members wherever they are in the world, whatever they are doing. This weekend has been successful and very diverse. There will be more detailed articles in the next Set the Pace magazine, but for now its great to celebrate alongside the individuals.

Lynn Jarvis, the organiser commented on Kathryn’s post –

Both were brilliant. Great to see the Icies in with all the other breeds as well in the open type classes and holding their own too. Hopefully we can entice more of you to join Kath next year (24th May, same venue) – it’s the 25th anniversary of our Association so every competitor gets a anniversary keepsake award too.

We have it in the diary.
