"I want to thank you for putting on such a super event at Kirkley Hall last month.
I moved from Wiltshire to Northumberland a couple of years ago and was worried that the choice or standard of events would not match that of the South, but with the addition of Kirkley to the northern calendar, I now feel really spoilt!
There was a really great atmosphere, rivalling that of some of our larger, or championship events. The cross country was really imaginative and although not the longest, more than made up for that in technicality with some interesting questions and thought provoking lines."
"Kirkley Hall this last weekend, for a first time event and new organiser was a triumph. More floral decorations than I have ever seen.
So relaxed, ran on time, good show jumping and fantastic cross country with a variety of fences.
Please congratulate John Tilley who master-minded the whole thing."
"I am e-mailing you to tell you how impressed we were as a family with the Sunday event. Can't believe it was the first time you had held an event like that! Simply wonderful! I used to event locally, before I had children and had to give horses up, but it brought back memories, and even encouraged my eldest son to take up riding!
We thought the cross country circuit was delightful, it was small, however it just seemed to flow.
Can't wait for the next event!"
