Bakewell Show 2011

First Ever Horse Drawn Hearse Class.

At the first ever Horse Drawn Hearse Class Karen came second with her team of black horses and one of the black hearses, whilst Grenville drove her pair of dappled greys to a silver hearse and came fourth in the pairs section. One of our black hearses was also on display on the Co-op Funeral Care Trade Stand and we were kindly sponsored by J.W. & J. Mettam Ltd of Bakewell.

What a Day!

Karen has three horse drawn funerals in one day.

Yesterday we had 3 funerals in one day; a black hearse with team of blacks, a white hearse with team of greys and another black hearse with a pair of blacks. Karen even managed to drive the two team funerals herself. It was a logistics nightmare but we managed to turn out 3 hearses, 10 horses and 5 horse boxes!

Karen to Drive Pony Team in 2011

As Karen has not managed to put together a horse team for 2011, she will now be driving a pony team.

The two young horses Karen introduced to her horse team last year unfortunately did not work out and she now has two new young horses. As she wants to introduce them slowly, she will only be taking them to a few events for practice this year.

However, Ray Aziz has kindly offered her the drive of his pony team for the season, which she has enthusiastically accepted. Their first outing will hopefully be Ashfields. At least we don’t have to go out and buy a team of Shetlands, which is what we were threatening to do at the end of last season!
