The Equine Team would like to thank Cumberland Agricultural Society for their help and support in allowing us the opportunity to run the light horse section of the show in these Covid times. Many of you knew Margaret Ogden, our amazing equine secretary (2015 to 2021), who we sadly lost this year to cancer. We run this show as a tribute to a much loved friend and colleague. - Linda & Louise
Our main sponsor David Allen, shares his thoughts on the new equine show. I’m very proud that our business has been given the opportunity to be the main sponsor of the Cumberland Agricultural Society Equine Show this year. The committee and equine team have invested a considerable amount of time, work and effort in getting the go ahead, and most importantly in a safe way. It is so important that this event can go ahead for the benefit of the wider equine community and the continuity of the Cumberland Show. I’ve known Margaret & Tom Odgen for 35 years and for the last 15 Margaret has been a very sincere loyal employee of our business. I know how much her horses meant to her and how much she contributed to the Cumberland Agricultural Society, particularly in the last 6 years as horse secretary. It is a lovely tribute that the event this year is in her memory and I feel very emotional and proud to be a key part of it.
If you are not a competitor please do make a donation, if you are able to, and help the Show continue.
