    The first Shave Horse Course was a tremendous success! Massive thanks to everyone who came, and to Clive for the delicious meals and snacks. There are now five new shave horses in the world, pictures to follow. The next gate course is kind of booked up, but there are spaces on the 24-25th August and 8th September still going. Please get in touch, I’d love to fill them. Bodge on, Keith. x

    Thank you to everyone who came to the first gate hurdle course. Shame there wasn’t enough time to finish everyone’s, perhaps it’s a two day course for beginners. You all seemed to have a good day though. Hope you learned lots and found it useful.
