Some great pictures were taken by Sandy of Baskwood Photos a few years ago, who happened to tag along to our first July Fun Day/Scurry with one of our members, and returned for that October’s club drive at Lord Creek.

Plus: take a peek at just some of the lovely photos taken by Lisa Cenis of Shoot That Horse during one of our annual Horse Driving Trials.

Have a look at how much fun we have, join us if you haven’t already, and please support our photographer friends by purchasing pictures to share.
