The Open Day on Sunday (September 11) promises some insights into training and preparation of a large string of racehorses for competition.

Trainer Charlie Longsdon was in the Grand National spotlight earlier this year when he presented the 12 – 1 favourite, Marietta Fox-Pitt’s Snow Leopardess.

Sunday’s event, which will be held from 12.30pm – 3.30pm at Hull Farm Stables on the Stratford Road will include a parade of horses, a schooling demonstration, stable tours and more.

Refreshments will be available – please take cash. There is no need to book, just turn up.

As well as being a fun day out it will give serious fans the chance to get involved in affordable ownership of a racehorse.

The address is Hull Farm Stables, Chipping Norton, OX7 5QF.
