Chipping Norton trainer Charlie Longsdon will be opening his gates to the public this weekend.

The Hull Farm handler will be holding his annual open day on Saturday, September 12. Gates open at 10am and there will be a parade of horses at 11am following a schooling session.

Refreshments will be available and entry is just a £2 donation to Riding For The Disabled.

And Longsdon could be in for a busy time as he now has 80 horses in his yard this year and has just laid a new all-weather gallop.

The Hull Farm yard is situated just outside Chipping Norton on the A3400 to Shipston-on-Stour.

He saddled a winner at Stratford on Saturday when Hepijeu obliged in the Jaguar Landrover Beginners Chase. The four-year-old was ridden by Aidan Coleman.
