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] Our latest project is about to roll off of the production line next week destined for a well known riding school based in Essex.
The Equihunter Arena 3.5t Horsebox in cream with green and gold trim
This build is finished to our customer specific instructions and is completed in a beautiful rich cream paint made by BMW called “Pepper White”, with green and gold trim that matches the corporate logo of the riding school.
This Arena is built upon a 2011 Fiat Ducato chassis with only 38,000 miles on the clock.
We’ve also added special features like internal LED lighting with blue night running lights as we have on our 7.5 tonne Equihunter Endurance lorry.
As fitted to the Equihunter Endurance
This ensures that the horses benefit from having a lit journey during the hours of darkness, but can also see out through the windows at assign traffic, and thus are less likely to be spooked but the sudden appearance of other vehicles headlights.
Other features include LED down lighters mounted above the rear door plus another set of LED down lights mounted high up on the drivers side of the vehicle to light the tie up area for those late evenings preparing to return home after dusk has fallen.
Here’s a gallery of images to show this Arena off….
….. the only things still to be completed are some finishing touches in the cab, the passenger seats are just about be to be delivered after being re-covered in cream vinyl and the bulkhead wall liner needs finishing. Apart from that, we’re ready to ‘rock and roll’
[Equihunter] Our latest production model of the Equihunter Arena was rolled out of the workshop yesterday, and what a lovely sight it was.
The Equihunter Arena based on a Fiat Movano Chassis awaiting the graphics to be applied
Yesterday was a watershed moment for Equihunter as we completed our latest project, the newest vehicle to join the fleet was unveiled, this time based on a Fiat Ducato Long Wheel Base chassis.
The sleek lines of the Fiat Ducato perfectly complement the curves of the Arena, as the early morning sun bounced off the fresh paintwork that was finished in our classic Arctic White we now just need to add the graphics to complete the magic.

[Equihunter] The phenomenon known as CASHJumping™ is sweeping the country after it’s successful launch within the last few weeks.
Designed for all show jumpers whatever their level and will provide fair competition for all with reasonable entry fees, decent prize money and good facilities
Join in the fun – Register at Cashjumping™
President of the newly formed organisation Bryan Shear happily noted in a Facebook post earlier today …..
President – Bryan Shear
“CASHJUMPING IS NOW LIVE – following the highly successful launch shows at Norton Heath and Blue Sky – comments such as “showjumping as it used to be”, “absolutely fab”, “you’ve bought showjumping back alive” – have come back to us, which is all fantastic news, and you can view them on our cashjumping facebook page.”
“Cashjumping now has over 3300 Rider and Horse or Pony Registrations, and 30 Show Centres are now registered with more coming in all the time.”
What is CashJumping
CashJumping is the brainchild of Bryan Shear and is designed to allow show jumpers of all levels to compete for decent prize money in venues with good facilities and at a reasonable cost.
Within the first week and and with no marketing campaign supporting it CashJumping saw over 600 competitors register and this is continuing to grow at the rate of 50 new registrations a day.
Bryan Shear founder of this new show jumping competition confessed to be overwhelmed with the response: “In the first hour of our website going live the number of people trying to access the system and sign up caused the servers to overload we completely underestimated the demand”
Having resolved those initial teething problems membership was firmly on the rise.
Cashjumping: How it works
The basic concept is simple explains Bryan, “entry fee is £10 a class for our stage one classes which go from 60cm to 1.40m and anyone who has not won more than £500 at Cashjumping at the relevant height can enter. 50% of all of the entry fees go into the prize fund.
Once a rider has won £500 they move up to the stage 2 classes were winnings limit is £1500 and thereafter to Stage 3 where there is no limit” Stage 2 classes the entry fee is £15 and stage 3 £20 resulting in even more prize money for the competitors.”
From the first few show centres who had already signed up, including the prestigious Netley Hall Equestrian Centre, runner up in this year’s British show jumping show centre of the year awards, the list has since grown with amazing speed and now stands at over 30 show centres, with yet more to follow.
For the show centre’s approved to run these classes there are benefits too. No affiliation fees, no class fees and a series that appeals to riders of all levels, with a prestigious final at the end of the season to look forward to.
The Cashjumping website www.cashjumping.co.uk can be used to market the shows and the centre’s are able to view the registered riders by area and see the level of demand for the shows and communicate direct with their local competitors to make sure the schedule reflects what the local riders want to see.
How was this all possible – Bryan explains….
“When British Show jumping changed its rules to allow its members to compete in other non BS events and not have any limit on the amount of prize money the opportunity to provide all riders with a good quality local show combined with a national final was too good to miss.”
“The fact is that everybody is having to look to reduce costs where they can and if local centre’s can put on quality shows with good facilities using accredited course builders and judges at a reasonable cost with a decent return the savings for the competitors in diesel, entry fees and membership costs can be huge”.
So is this a direct competitor to the established show jumping scene? Bryan says not…
“We see this as something that will bridge the gap between the British Show jumpers and the unaffiliated riders”.
“Yes of course it is expensive even for the professional yards to register and compete all of their horses at BS shows, and there may be some people who decide not to register all of their youngsters straight in at BS level, but any loss of income should be more than compensated for by an increase in the number of unaffiliated riders who go Cashjumping compete against their BS counterparts and realize that BS is not some sort of holy grail reserved for the rich or professional rider”.
[Equihunter] A very hot sunny Sunday afternoon saw a really successful day for Team Equihunter this Sunday. Our team rider Libby Newman came in first twice in the same afternoon. Well done to Libby.
Libby is placed first in two rounds. Photo: Team Equihunter
With temperature soaring to 30 degrees locally and with no wind or clouds to provide any respite, jumping conditions were challenging for both horses and riders at the Felbridge Showground.
The young rider entered two classes, Class 6, the Blue Chip Feed Balancer Pony Newcomers 1st Round and then, Class 7, the Squib Demolition Pony Foxhunter 1st Round … and we are pleased to say that it was a very successful day when Libby gained a first place at both heights.
When asked what was the most challenging part of the competition was Libby said that she was most concerned about the ponies getting overheated and made sure that there was plenty of water available for them straight after the competition came to a close.
A lot of hard work and training has gone into making this day such a success and that
It was a late finish on the day for both seniors and juniors as jumping was still progressing well into the early evening, but with the cloudless sky continuing late into the day, some riders took full advantage of the the slightly cooler eveningair temperatures to continue with the more demanding competition classes.
