Last Saturday I went to my first Point to Point meeting and what fun it was! Living just half a mile from the racecourse it seemed a worthwhile way to spend a Saturday afternoon supporting local businesses, having a flutter and taking some pictures along the way.
This Point to Point event was at Kingston Blount, Oxfordshire and have a select number of race days a year. At this event there were seven races with the first five being with horses and the last two with ponies. There was a great atmosphere with both young and old and people from all walks of life watching the horses as they race around the course with some jumps along the way.
The Kingston Blount race course has a beer tent, hog roast, other catering facilities and a selection of countryside based stalls for the visitors. With entry for cars being £20 and only a fiver if you walked there it has to be one of the best fivers I’ve ever spent. I lost a bit more with the bookmakers but I still came away with a smile on my face and some great pictures to back up my enjoyment.
So here are a few of my favourite pictures telling the story of the Kingston Blount Point to Point. More details about Kingston Blount and their fixtures can be found here.
Enjoy the pictures!
