A message from Briggy our ‘hoss’:
‘As you know I am a central member of BVB and I will be representing you at Sidmouth.
I am writing to announce that I am entering the Sidmouth Folk Festival Horse Trials taking place on Sunday 5 August at 2pm (probably until 3.30) at The Hub (at the end of the Prom) in Sidmouth, Devon. Just ask anyone and they will direct you.
I hope I am able to exhibit all the star qualities that I know you have come to know and love from my performances with you. I am likely to be asked to dance, possibly to the fiddle of Helen Price, and compete a strenuous gymkhana like course. In addition I will have to answer some hard questions about World Peace.
As you know I am an expert in all of this.
I shall be wearing my finest harness made by Mary Kear and Chris Newman and will be a sight to behold.
There is a prize awarded by Aardman animations which I plan to win.
If you are in Sidmouth for the Folk Festival please come and cheer me on. I shall be signing autographs.’
With best wishes
