Horse Sunday in St Neots, 19th September 1953 entering the Market Square

Horse Sunday was an annual event (now seldom observed) at which all local riders would assemble on St Neots Common and then proceed to the Market Square where a Vicar or Minister would conduct a short service and bless the equines and riders. This picture shows the procession passing the Golden Ball, (a few years later for a short while called the ’Sputnick’ and in 2014 called The Cornerhouse).  Susan Bartlett on ’Smokey’ is two back followed by Miss Hodge and two back is Chris Hoefkens on ’Squirrel’. The doors of the Pavilion Cinema can be seen at the back. Photographer – George Page
