Caithness Pony Club First Competition On
New Cross Country Course
Specialist cross-country course designer Hugh Lochore who has also built some of the portable fences used at the facility designed the course. MM Miller Ltd using stone, logs and timber built the permanent fences. Caithness and Sutherland Enterprise, the National Lottery Sportscotland and MM Miller Wick (Ltd) contributed financially to the ambitious project.
Mr Hamish Pottinger, Club President and owner of the previous course at Greenland Mains very kindly carried out his traditional role of sending the riders out on to the course.
The branch will be holding a One-Day Event at the same venue on May 31st for Pony Club members. The branch is also hosting the North Cup competition in August. This competition hasnít been held in Caithness since 1987, as the club has to win it to have the chance of hosting it the following year.
