Fundraiser - Horse Race Night
On Saturday 5th March the Pony Breeders of Shetland Association held a Horse Race night at the Bixter Hall to raise funds for the upcoming 2019 Shetland Pony Breed Show. This is a UK wide Shetland Pony Show which is annually held all over the UK, and was last held in Shetland in 2009. This attracted competitors from as far afield as Devon, and spectators from all over the World.
A huge thank you to those who came along and supported the event, a fantastic £706.25 was raised. Thanks to helpers Gill, Paul, Marion, Erik and James David, also thanks goes to all who sponsored the races and purchased horses.
