For the 2nd year running we won the Fireball Hockey Competition hosted by the Morpeth Hunt.
The team consisted of John Scott, Ema Caskie, Sarah Proudlock, Stuart Hall, Rob Airey, Charlotte Allen, Gary Hindmarsh and Callum Caskie were not without injuries. Charlotte is now sporting a bruised cheek, John is missing a thumb nail and Rob is nursing a very sore ankle. Well done anyway guys. Go Team Border!!!
Thank you to Claire Irving for organising a fun evening
We recently held a Cheese and Wine Evening at Dunns House which was well supported.
Thank you to the Supporters Committee for the excellent food provided.

The Border recently pulled together two quiz teams to compete in the Interhunt Quiz Competition held by the Jedforest Hunt at Bonchester Bridge.
A huge turn out of quiz teams took part on the evening answering a wide selection of questions ranging from hunting to horse racing, including a slogan and a guess what’s in the bag round.
Although the Border did not win the competition, they did not let us down coming in with a decent score. However the two Border Teams had their own close battle. One point separated the two teams with the winners being Tom’s Team consisting of Tom Elliot, Ema Caskie, Neil Hindmarsh and Gary Hindmarsh. Coming in second was the Border Ladies consisting of Poppy Hindmarsh, Sarah Proudlock, Fiona Fyall and Charlotte Allen.
Thank you to the Jedforest for an entertaining evening
We raised £150 from the bacon buttie morning which will be donated to Macmilian Cancer Support. Thank you to everyone who came to support us
Just wanted to send a quick E mail to say how much we enjoyed your hunter trial yesterday. Worth the longer travel time as a lovely course for my daughter to try out her new pony ! Finishing 2nd in class & receiving prize money made her day.
We will definitely be back.
A big thank you to everyone who helped out at our hunter trial today. After a slow blustery start we got into our stride and had a fantastic day.
A huge turn out of horses who competed safely around the brilliant course designed by Julie Nixon.
Thank you to the Nixon Family for allowing us to use their fantastic venue for our 3rd year.
Thank you to everyone who turned up last Friday night to help set up for the puppy show.
Also a very big thank you to those who helped steward the dogs, hounds and pony sports. Manned the gate, served food and drink and put up the tent at our puppy show on Sunday. We had a fantastic day with a great turnout of people
