UKCC Technical Day with Jane Peberdy

We had a very successful training day at Brooksby on the 17th January, despite the awful weather conditions!

We had a super turn as you see from the photos and some super demonstration riders.

Thanks to everyone involved, but especially Jane for keeping us interested and entertained and to Sarah for driving miles in the awful weather to support us.
