BOUNCING back from the disappointment of having to cancel in 2012 due to extreme rain, the organisers and volunteers of the Homme House Horse Trials are already galloping along with plans for this year’s event on August 6 and 7. Once again John and Jocelyn Finnigan are allowing the organisers to transform Homme’s parkland at Much Marcle for the enjoyment of riders and visitors alike. Dressage is held to the backdrop of the 13th century St Bartholomew’s Church with its famous historic yew tree. Show jumping takes place in an arena sitting below the ha-ha in front of Homme House itself and the cross country winds through the Capability Brown parkland and adjoining woodland. All three come together to create a spectacular, picturesque and quintessentially English setting for the trials. The cross country course even includes a special “hedgehog” fence recognising the emblem of the Kyrle family who first came to Homme House in the 16th century. Jocelyn said: “We are extremely honoured that Herefordshire’s only British Eventing horse trials are held at Homme House. “It is very rewarding to see so many people enjoying the parkland which generations of the estate’s owners have worked so hard to create. “Walking around during the trials it has been heartening to hear competitors, volunteers and spectators remark on the atmosphere at Homme House Horse Trials as being very special and I am really looking forward to welcoming everyone again this year.” Eventing fans are welcome to saddle up and check out this very special atmosphere for themselves, enjoying a great day out to watch the action, do some shopping, capture stunning images, or enjoy a family picnic while watching all the action at the water or hedgehog jumps. For further information or if you are interested in joining thevolunteers, call Anne on 07772 246428 or Stella on 07825 702116.
