Farm owner and event organiser Willie Young reckoned that over 2000 people came through the gates to enjoy seven races over fences, from two and a half to three miles long, at the Dumfriesshire and Stewartry Hunt meeting.
Willie said: “It was unbelievable that we got good weather again. My letter to the Big Man obviously worked!
“A lot of places around Europe have been absolutely frozen, with Saturday’s France v Ireland rugby international even being postponed due to a frozen pitch.
“Our point-to-point meeting was the only one on in the UK, so we were extremely lucky again. Our attendance was slightly up on the same meeting last year, which I was delighted with.”
