Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - An Equine and Fine Wine event for the whole community.
It is really quite simple - come to the Rural Creators' Collective shop about 10:30 a.m.. have a free sample cup of tea from Terra Teas - Organic while you browse the horse-related (and wine-related!) items in the handmade-locally and eco-friendly shop. Then you will be given an equestrian trivia quiz and puzzle to solve. Hand them in. Then go on down the road to M2 stables to see Esther Mortimer, two time Pan-Am games dressage rider (and recent double champ at Palgrave!) and her coach and husband Harper MacKenzie put a few horses through their morning paces. The winner of the RCC quiz will then be announced, and he or she gets their photo taken with Esther and her Pan-Am horse, taken by professional photographer, Yvonne Parsons Photography. Everyone then goes to Cascata Bistro, for a late lunch, where owner and manager Angela Checchia will present the winner with a free bottle of delectable wine, a few other free gifts are given as table favours from the Rural Creators Collective, and there are lovely flowers from Carlisle Flowers. Cascata is offering lunch to everyone at a remarkable 15% off, too! What a fun, educational and contact-building equestrian day to celebrate Carlisle and community...
And here's a sampling of the items you can find at the shop...
Yes, that's a horse themed soap! by Wintermoon Soaps (find them on Facebook)
Pottery by Natalie of Remembrances (on Facebook and AtTheCrossroads on Etsy) with a nod to the equine theme.
Also nodding to the theme...this great painting by Trinity Artists.
And various horse-related items.
Come on out and enjoy the day!
