Free event for horse owners featuring British Eventing star


Olympic medallist, Jeanette Brakewell, will be introducing a free event this September for anyone that keeps horses on or near Cannock Chase AONB.

Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership, supported by South Staffordshire College, is inviting local horse owners to an information event to find out how to make sure their horses are happy and healthy, whilst protecting the local environment.

Taking place at the Hay Rack Café at the Equestrian Centre in Rodbaston College, from 4pm to 7pm on Wednesday 25 September, the event will promote best practice horse pasture management.

The free event will be introduced by British eventing star, Jeanette Brakewell, who has won two Olympic team silver medals. This will lead on to a talk about healthy pasture and horses by Chloe Palmer, then Clive Keble will discuss planning matters, including protecting and enhancing the landscape of the AONB.

Emma Beaman, Assistant AONB Officer for Cannock Chase AONB, said: “If you live near the AONB and keep horses, this is a great opportunity to find out some useful advice on how to make sure your horses are kept in the best possible way, without damaging the precious local environment. There will also be the opportunity to ask our equestrian experts questions and to meet like-minded horse owners. We only have 40 free spaces, so make sure you book now to avoid disappointment.”

To book your free place, please contact Emma Beaman on 01785 619186 or email emma.beaman@staffordshire.gov.uk .
