Presidents Introduction 2017
Happy New year everyone and welcome to what looks like, a very busy 2017 for all you heavy horse enthusiasts.
Firstly, as the new president of St Heliers Heavy Horse Field Days, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the outgoing committee for all your hard work and dedication.Last year’s event, was by far, the best to date and the training days were very informative and fun for all who attended.
Each year I have attended the event, I have noted that it has grown in strength, with more competitors and spectators.
The attendance last year of Dr Harry from Better Homes and Gardens, and the subsequent national exposure, is a testament to the hours of organisation and planning the committee have put in to the event.
Well the year is certainly marching on already, and it won't be long until its 'all hands on deck' for the next event. Like most small committees our volunteers and helpers are a huge contributor to the running of the weekend. A huge thank you to those that have stepped up to help over the last few years and we sincerely hope you can all help again this year.
Remember if you are not on the committee but would like to put forward an idea or suggestion we are always happy to have your input, feel free to give myself or our secretary, Heather O'Sullivan a call. [see contacts page]
We are very excited to put forward a full program of events this year to showcase the beauty, versatility and strength of the heavy horse. It will be available for you to check out in the near future.
Again a big thank you to John Sercombe, Kylie Vernon and Colin Lavender for your hard work and enthusiasm for the heavy horses we all love so much, l hope you can enjoy this year’s event with your horses. Looking forward to seeing everyone at St Heliers 2017.
