Well done to Rachel, Aurora XXIV and their farrier.

Muriel and I would like to say "thank you" everyone who rode at the Wirral Ride (we hope you had a good time) and, of course, to the wonderful band of helpers. We were going to say "Too many to mention" but they deserve a mention (hope we've got everyone) so here goes:
Route marking: Terry Madden & Rachel Robinson;
The vets: Anna Stonex & Hattie Barnes;
The farrier: Georgina Swire;
The caterers: Linda & Keith Edwards;
Technical Steward: Stephen Bennett:
Check Points and Radio Tracking: Wirral Raynet;
First Aid: Glyn Collins;
Car parking: Jane Stewart & Lorna McCarthy (who both moved on to other jobs);
Vet stewards: Gaynor Jones & Pat Guerin;
Time Keepers: Rachael & Scarlett Chappel;
Road crossing: Sally & Katy Mellor;
Vet writers: Meg Knott, Libby Dutton & Sarah Lewis;
Ron Hampson & Carol Taylor for everything else.

Without the help of these good people the ride just couldn't run.

Finally, the official ride photographs were taken by Ruth Saunby and can be found here.

The Eld Trophy which is normally awarded to the Best Shod Horse or Pony in a competitive class at our Frolic Ride (thanks to Sue Evans) is up for grabs at this year's Wirral Ride.
The farrier will assess all shod and barefoot horses entered into one of the competitive classes to award the trophy.

The Eld Trophy donated by Sue Evans

It may be worth mentioning here that with a strict timetable in place due to Covid 19 the farrier will have limited time with each horse so please don't turn up hoping for a complete reshoeing before starting out - it has happened before!!!
