Countryside Day - Sparsholt

Sparsholt College is a further education college offering courses in Agriculture, Equine Studies, Forestry, Fisheries, Game and Wildlife Management, and just about any other rural study you can think of! Hannah has been really keen to see the college as she is still hoping to pursue a rural career, so when our friends told us about the Countryside Day they were holding we had to go!

It was fantastic! We got to see and do so much, and spent the day with our friends which was great.

Hannah met the calves,

Watched a riding display,

Met the farrier,

and climbed a rock!

We watched working dog training,

and a dog agility class.

Hannah and I both had a go at Archery. It was really fun - i'd love to do it again!

We learned about eggs,

and slow worms.

Rode on an old 1960's bus,

 visited the animal enclosures with our friends,

 and had a really long, happy day :-)
