Welcome to the Surrey Spring Show. This Show has been established by a group of friends who have all been touched by cancer. The idea to raise money with a charity show began when dear friends Sam Holland & Sue Alkin were both diagnosed.
We all know of Cancer, it happens to other people. The Surrey Spring Show has been established by a group of friends who have all been touched by this disease. The idea to raise money with a charity show began when dear friends Sam Holland & Sue Alkin were both diagnosed.
The Show is being run to raise funds for The Royal Marsden Hospital (where Sam continues to receive her excellent treatment); and St.Catherines Hospice (Crawley) that cared so wonderfully for Sue. The committee and everyone involved have given their time for free and every penny of the proceeds will go to the two charities. Thank you for your kind and generous support.
The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity
The Royal Marsden is a world-leading cancer centre, providing the very best treatment and care for more than 40,000 cancer patients every year. It is also at the forefront of cancer research. The Royal Marsden’s work influences how all cancer patients are treated and cared for, not just in its own hospitals but all over the world.
St Catherine’s Hospice is a charity dedicated to providing specialised end of life care and support to local people, their families, friends and carers. For over 25 years they have been providing high quality hospice care, free of charge, to people living in Crawley, Horsham, Mid Sussex and East Surrey.

[Equihunter] The British Grooms Association posed an interesting question on their website today …. What is the real truth behind the employment issues in our industry?
The British Grooms Association has been created to provide a professional organisation for grooms of all disciplines.
The British Grooms Association (BGA) has issued a plea to the equestrian industry for their help in unveiling the truth behind employment trends within the sector. As the professional membership association which represents the career interests of grooms, the BGA is urging all those who work with horses to come forward and have their say.
Lucy Katan, Executive Director of the BGA, explained, “We are calling for grooms and employers to fill in our anonymous surveys to help us to build a realistic picture of the employment practices that are occurring right now. There have been several headlines about grooms and employers recently all of which raise concerning issues. For the BGA to make a real difference to the working lives of both grooms and employers we must first discover the real facts.”

The two surveys, one targeted at grooms and the other to employers, have been compiled with the combined expertise of Georgina Brooke-Holmes of Coventry University and Sport England in partnership with BGA. Participants can opt to submit their answers anonymously to ensure that a true picture is generated. To add a little more incentive there is the opportunity for respondents to win a £100 cash prize or a luxury hamper of Absorbine grooming products, in return for giving up a few minutes of their time.
Andrew Finding, Chief Executive of the British Equestrian Federation, commented: “We are pleased that the BGA is taking on this research project. Once again it demonstrates that they are leading the industry in this crucial area of work. We urge all of those that work with horses, either as a groom or an employer, to take time to fill in a survey.”

The 16 year old faced competition from around 50 others in the class, including top British competitors Tina Fletcher and Michael and Ellen Whitaker.
Mendoza was one of only eight in the jump-off, going early on, setting a fast clear round target which none of the others could beat.
“Without a doubt, this would be Jess’s biggest win to date. It was one of the biggest tracks you get in national competitions and knowing that we can hold our own against the very best in the country makes the future look good,” said father and trainer Paul.
“I’m so happy with that. The horse went really well for me,” added Jessica.
It has been a good month for Mendoza who – in addition to taking home £9,000 in prize money from the Addington Grand Prix – has been accepted on to the World Class Development Programme.
The programme works with talented riders to maximise their potential and deliver success on the international stage, with the Rio Olympics in mind….
