Forthcoming Events



Christmas/New Year Ride or Walk near Redditch.  This has been arranged for Thursday 28th December 2017. Location, Post code and time will be posted after our Committee Meeting on 14th December.  

A date for your 2018 diaries...!

The MHHA New Year Meal will be held at Umberslade Farm Park on Sunday 14th January from 12.00 noon onwards.    As the farm will be closed to the general public that weekend we are able to use the larger room in the Farmhouse Cafe and Chef Michelle has agreed to help us with the preparations. We aim to sit down at 1.00 pm sharp as we have an after-lunch speaker. Many of you will know Christopher Lloyd (aka Charlie) who shows Monty on behalf of Mike and Faye Bottomer and he was presented with an award for being the best dressed groom at the 2017 Shire Horse Society Spring Show. But how many of you know that he was in the Royal Horse Artillery and part of the magnificent Kings Troop for 20 years? Charlie will be talking about his time spent in the barracks and being in charge of this magnificent display team. He will be backing up his talk with an excellent range of slides.

AND .... As my shires are based at Umberslade, if anyone is interested in arriving at 10.30am to spend a couple of hours with them, learning how to wash out the feather and to practice plaiting, please let me know. These activities are aimed at novice and young handlers although everyone is welcome!

PRICE of the Meal.....will be very similar to the last one which was £10 per adult and £5.00 per child and we have a committee meeting on 14th December to confirm menu and costs. There will be soup, a choice of two main dishes with vegetables, etc and some home made puddings. Tea and coffee ad lib! You are welcome to bring your own drink ..... glasses will be provided.

We hope to see as many members as possible so please let me know asap if you are coming.
