Thank you to everyone who attended the Show Horse Awards function at Windy Creek Estate in Herne Hill on Saturday 21 January 2023.
It was a hot afternoon but quite pleasant under the veranda and shade sails, with a mist fan in place. The drinks from the bar were icy cold. Some snacks were provided, and it was a great opportunity for our members to get together, especially those who had just returned from the Nationals.
