It is now 7 years since Symm first sponsored the horse trials at Hambleden and in this time the event has become a well-established International event, highly regarded by both competitors and spectators.
Its unique setting and levels of challenge in all classes make it a favourite event for many.  I must confess that seven years ago I knew very little about eventing and whilst I am still no expert, I now know enough to really appreciate the high levels of skill and dedication of the riders and I am looking forward to another spectacular weekend of competition.
I would like to express huge thanks to Lisa Hughes and the countless volunteers, whose amazing energy and commitment make this such a unique and special weekend for us all.
I hope you enjoy yourselves.

Trade Stands

Visitors to event not only have an opportunity to wander through the glorious bluebell woods as they watch horses and riders tackle the imposing cross country fences, they also have the prospect of some excellent retail therapy. Here is a link to this year's tradestands: 2016.docx

Not all sale finds are created equal. Some bags, colors or leathers are more popular, go on sale more rarely or disappear quicker than others. Right now, in the very early days of replica handbags sale season, is the time to concern yourself with finding those pieces, should any of them be on your shopping lists. Because I get paid to sift through cheap oakley sunglasses sale sites with a fine-tooth comb all day and you guys theoretically get paid to do other things, I've gone ahead and done just that to find the bags that are most in danger of cheap ugg boots selling out at their current discounts. Have fun. Celebs are loving pretty pink Chanels, Lady Diors and classic Gucci bags this week. There is also a rather alluring mystery bag ray ban outlet in play, which we need your help identifying. This is a task that our readers absolutely excel at, so I have no doubt we'll have this case cracked within an hour of this posting. Also, check back later this week to find out what bags celebs chose for their Thanksgiving holiday excursions.
