CHRISTMAS COVER PHOTO COMPETITION!

The nights are drawing in, the weather's getting grim, and winter is almost fully upon us! That means more mud and more mucking out, and, unfortunately for a lot of us, less time in the saddle. We thought we'd cheer you all up and give you something to look forward to, so we're starting the countdown to Christmas in style with our cover photo competition!

We're asking for your horsey photos that you think sum up the festive period - be it your pony's Christmassy clip, your hunter in his cosy new winter rug, or even your clever cob having a good wallow in some mud! The winning entry will be the cover photo for our Facebook page throughout the month of December. In addition to this prestigious honour, as a special Christmas treat the winner will receive a £50 voucher for Thinford Saddlery!

Please submit your entries via our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/durham.equinepractice), including the name of the horse(s) pictured (one entry per person; entrants should be clients of the practice) - closing date 29th November.

LOCKDOWN 2.0 ANNOUNCEMENT

Following the announcement of lockdown in England from November 5th, we want to reassure you we will continue to be here to care for your horse, while respecting the new guidelines.

If you are worried about your horse, do contact us. If you already have an appointment booked, please keep it as planned, unless we advise otherwise.

Please be patient with us as our phone lines can be busy.

Remember, do not come to the practice if you have COVID symptoms or are self-isolating/quarantined; please call instead, so we can help you.

Our thoughts continue to be with all the individuals and businesses who are being adversely affected by this second lockdown, and of course by COVID itself.
