The Lambourn Open Day

Good Friday means one thing round here and it's that the doors of the local racehorse stables are thrown open so that the public can get a look behind the scenes. The £12 entrance fee allows you to enter any of the 30 stables and also gives entry to an afternoon of horsey entertainment where you literally rub shoulders with the stars of the racing community - we've talked to Nicky Henderson and Tony McCoy in previous years.

The money goes to various charities including the Injured Jockeys Fund. Unfortunately, we somehow bought dodgy raffle tickets - grrrr. Anyway, here's a pic of a horse.
