Open Day report

Big crowds at our first Green Oaks Open Day

Big crowds at our first Green Oaks Open Day

We had a fantastic turnout, possibly about 350 people came to our yard this morning for the Open Day and despite the wind which made the parade and commentary difficult, everyone seemed to enjoy looking round and we have already had some excellent feedback. Many thanks to all our team for working on a Sunday – all the hard work that went in to producing the horses looking so well and welcoming our many visitors.

Sarah raised ( before total count) a massive £475 on the  cake stall in air of the Northern Air Ambulance – thanks to so many people for your wonderful cake donations and for buying them!
