This week-end saw the 50th Anniversary of the Exmoor Golden Horseshoe Ride of Endurance Riding.

Although there were many events taking place on the moor surrounding the village, Winsford was lucky

enough once again to cheer on the riders taking part in the Pleasure Ride.


Sunday morning at around about 11amGolden Horseshoe First Team Through, residents,

visitors and marshals started to congregate by the

Ford to see the early group of riders pass through the

village.Golden Horseshoe Coffee Drinkers

First through were Trish and Jeremy from Halse Farm

closely followed by a team of celebrity riders known

as The Golden Oldies.







Then came the local team riding and representing the Exmoor Pony Centre.
