Leading equine experts from across Yorkshire are hooking up at a charity fundraising evening at the Conference Centre at Beverley Racecourse next week.
Coinciding with National Equestrian Safety Day, the inaugural Yorkshire Horse & Rider Safety Event will feature presentations from experts in different disciplines that impact on horse welfare and how a horse will perform in public.
A company director has been ordered to pay £1,763.50 after his firm illegally put signs up across the East Riding advertising a Christmas event in Beverley.
Paul Leonard, director of Cottage Industrys Ltd of Ings Lane, Dunswell, had a significant number of advertising boards placed on the public highway without permission in October last year to promote a Mistletoe Fair at Beverley Racecourse taking place in November.
Racegoers can expect new themed race meetings, more family-friendly days, new and improved party nights, plus, of course, exhilarating flat racing over one mile and three furlongs on the spectacular Westwood course.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is keen to hear from members of the public on proposals to improve part of the A164 and the Jock’s Lodge Junction.
As part of its funding bid to the Department for Transport (DfT), the council has launched an online survey and has arranged drop-in sessions at Beverley Racecourse on Wednesday, 8 November (9.30am-6.45pm) and the Morrison’s Beverley store on Friday, 10 November (9.30am-6.45pm) to hear from the public.
Some have called it “unpretentious”, this lovely little racecourse tucked into the East Riding of Yorkshire, in a market town which bears its same name. Established in 1767 when the first Grand Stand was built, the racecourse has all the makings to be, in fact, pretentious, with a 300 hundred year long history and a solid reputation to boot.
However, it decides not to, keeping both feet firmly on the ground but with head held high. Through modernisation of the stands, race track and facilities, the Beverley Racecourse aims for the stars – and with good reason.
