Quob Stables Family Fun Day bigger and better than ever!
Quob Stables Equestrian Centre in Durley held their biggest ever Family Fun Day this Bank Holiday Monday, with more than 1,000 families enjoying an equestrian themed day and raising over £2,000 for Naomi House & Jacksplace and The Teenage Cancer Trust at Southampton General Hospital.
BBC South Today’s Chrissy Sturt kindly commentated throughout the day, while visitors enjoyed displays from local equestrian stars including a Napoleonic display from Crown & Empire featuring one of Quob’s own horses. The crowds were wowed by a Western demo from European Junior Western Champion and Bronze Medallist Tammy Greaves and a Flights of the Flag demo from Patrick Kempe and his Lusitano, Tetuã.
Southampton University and Quob Stables junior team went head to head in a horseball competition and the day concluded with a dressage display from Hampshire based national dressage rider, Sadie Smith, who learnt to ride at Quob Stables.
The afternoon featured side saddle demonstration on Quob Stables Dressage Simulator and the fun dog classes proved very popular with dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes entered as well as a clear round agility course. Families also enjoyed a bouncy castle, slide and range of stalls.
Beth Boyes, Quob Stables Proprietor, said: “We were overwhelmed with the number of people attending and by their generosity, and would like to thank everyone who gave their time and support to help us raise money for such deserving charities”.
