A charity horse show which was held over the Bank Holiday weekend has been deemed a great success by its organisers.

Hundreds of people attended the third annual equestrian show which was held over three days at Sisson’s Farm in Peakirk.

Nicole Pearce, 14, from Deeping St James, ran her first event at the farm in 2012 in memory of her grandad who died of cancer.

The show continued last year despite equestrian Nicole herself being diagnosed with the disease. Nicole was given the all clear and this year, ran the show with Laura Harris, who took over the farm from her mother-in-law to host the event.

The pair were delighted with the turnout and hope the show raised some much needed funds in aid of chosen charity Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.

Laura, whose father was cared for at the hospice, said: “It was really well attended and we were very very pleased.

“It was great to be able to spread the word about the charity and have great fun doing it.

“It was nice to show the work and what we have to offer visitors to the farm.”

Saturday’s show included the clinic and dressage classes, while Sunday features the show jumping. The dog show featuring an agility test was held on Monday.

“We had some fantastic entries and it was great to see.

“Nicole thoroughly enjoyed it too.”
