Hobby Horse Races

As horse racing is a favourite pastime of the Queen, we are going to have our own hobby horse races on the field from 4pm – 6pm.

The races planned are

1. All the Queen's Horses Flat Race
2. Glorious Tribute Steeplechase
3. Phantom Gold Dressage
4. Look Behind You Pantomime Horse Race

Each race will be run several times to accommodate different age ranges- i.e. preschool children, primary school children, secondary school students, adults etc.
