Well, we finally get to start our season. We’ve had multiple events lost due to the weather. To be honest horse trials in the snow doesn’t sound appealing.
We have just returned from Great Witchingham International Horse Trials. Firstly a huge thank you to all at the event for looking after our crews so well and making them feel very welcome. The event passed without significant issues. We saw a handful of patients, only one required hospital attention and she was conveyed by ourselves. There was a moment of concern the event may not run the distance when the heavens opened late Saturday afternoon. Testament to the hard work, grit and graft of the organisers the land drained well and the event concluded as planned. I was particularly pleased for the opportunity to test out 4×4 ambulance out in some muddy and damp, slick grass. She performed a dream. Scampering about the course with confidence and without slip. It impressed the organisers that we had a 4×4 vehicle with standing room inside that could take on the terrain at its slipperiest.
