Gurnett Farm Livery
Our GG's (Gurnett Girlies) are a very social bunch! Organising days out and events together and communicating through our own GG's 'WhatsApp' message service! Flick through places we have been, things we have seen and more importantly....enjoyed!
Christmas Day hack-out!
Some of our GG's head-out for a hack on Christmas Day but nothing too strenuous mind! An obvious stop-off was planned to see Mrs T, (social secretary) to enjoy a 'festive catch up' with a 'small' glass of port.
How very civilised!
25th December 2019.
GFL's 'Shaken & Stirred' Xmas do!
In an effort to do 'something different' for GFL's Xmas do, Team GG headed off into Manchester to 'hone' their Cocktail making skills! Overseen by Tim, (cocktail making guru), the GG's managed to perfect the ultimate 'Dirty Martini'!
GFL 'Summer Camp 2019.'
Well, we did say we'd do it again!
Jo Adamson did her equine healing, Beccy Nicholson put 'Team GG' through their paces with jumping and pole work in the Arena and Helen Wain introduced 'ride with your mind.' It's a given! 2020, we'll do it all again!
The 'Cheeky Italian'
In an effort to blow away the 'winter blues', Team GG head out to a well known Italian restaurant in Macclesfield. Good food with a few drinks and smashing company, made sure that winter was well and truly forgotten! Bring on summer!
Magical Macclesfield Forest
A couple of our GG's set off on a sunny, early spring hack to Macclesfield Forest. Blissfully unaware that the forest was covered in snow, I quote from their WhatsApp...
'It's unbelievable up here! You've all got to try and do it. Magical wonderland the stuff of dreams!'
GG’s 'Point-2-Point' Xmas do! Take 2!
GFL's Christmas Safari Supper!
Super food, great company and lots of fun! (Especially pass-the-parcel wearing oven gloves!) DJ Malc transformed Gurnett Farm’s living room into ‘Discotheque Royale’ with his laser lights and fabulous ‘disco balls’. Epic!
GG's ride in Portugal
Four of our GG's pop over to Portugal to ride, in 34 degrees, the beautiful Lusitano horses. Riding miles of trails between eucalyptus, pines, olives and cereal fields with magnificent views of the river. Next GG holiday is already on the cards for 2019!
GFL 'Summer Camp 2018.'
Three days of camping in our very own Croft with lots of horsey stuff going on in GFL's Arena. Jumping, pole and drill work all overseen by qualified instructors. Our 'GG's' also enjoyed yoga, Pilates and massage while the horses had their very own massage and therapy. 2019? I think we'll do it again!
BHS Plaque Unveiling
Our 'original' Gurnett Girlie and founder of the GG WhatsApp group had no hesitation 'doing the honours' unveiling our BHS plaque. Our Sue even prepared a little 'ode to GFL' which was a little emotional but, very fitting for such a special occasion.
Grand National & Ladies Day
Tiger Roll wins the 2018 Grand National which was seen 'live' on the big screen here at the farm. Our GG's combined the race with 'Ladies Day' enjoying a few glasses of fizz with a buffet style late lunch.
GG’s 'Point-2-Point' Christmas do!
GFL's Christmas Safari Supper! Four of our GG's open up their home for a few hours to offer a pre dinner, starter, main and desert. Great food, fantastic company and a throughly enjoyable evening.
GG’s ride in the USA!
Three of our GG’s cross the pond to go ride cowboy, or should I say cowgirl style in Montana, USA! Stopping off at Livingston and Yellowstone National Park on the way to the ranch. The 2018 trip is already under discussion!
Gurnett Farm 1-Day Event
Nine of our GG's go head 2 head! Working Hunter in the Croft followed Dressage in the Arena. Independently judged with the awarding of rosettes. The gazebo remained in its bag as the weather was perfect.
Adlington Dressage Competition
Hours of practise in our very own Arena paid off recently, as three of our GG's headed down to Adlington Equestrian Centre for a dressage competition. Our ladies had a super day out and were placed 1st, 2nd and 4th!
Gurnett Farm Summer Show 2016
After the success of GG Summer Show 2015, we had to do it again! The weather this year was unpredictable, but that didn't dampen the GG enthusiasm. All contributed to lunch and the loan of a popup gazebo came in real handy!
Macclesfield Pleasure Ride
With clear skies and a wonderful atmosphere our GGs set off around the stunning Macclesfield forest in support of The Rossendale Trust. Riders took in the views in many locations, one of the highlights being Nesset Hill.
Grand National Day
Open house at Gurnett Farm to watch the big race live! Lots to eat and drink with everyone chipping in. A great afternoon with one lucky GG winning the sweepstake!
GG Easter Ride
The GGs pick a great day to hack out over the Easter holidays.
GG Christmas Day Ride
A few of the girls brave the cold, rain and snow for a Christmas Day ride.
Gurnett Farm Summer Show 2015
Team GG out for fun & games during the Bank Holiday weekend. Several events held including; in-hand best turned out, 'Gurnetts' Working Hunter, Ridden Horse or Pony and Puissance. This was followed by a BBQ with everyone chipping in with food and drink!
Team GG day out at Smallwood
A fantastic day out for the GGs at Smallwood.
