I'm glad that you enjoyed it.smile We did too,although we only got there fairly late on.It was really interesting and the staff there are lovely.A friend works there and was telling me about Hornblower & Bob,to ex HC horses due to retire to private homes this year.Apparently,if you are interested you write expressing it,and they'll inform you when they are ready to go and you bid for them against other interested parties.She says the bidding starts at about £500.They'd certainly be bombproof!grin

It was a brilliant day out! So interesting to get right behind the scenes like that. Took DD and a friend and they loved every bit. smile

Oooo - saw the heavy horse show at brooksby signs the other day but can't go. Didn't realise that the military horse thing was on though so will go to that

Wow! Thank you for sharing that gem. Have just told DD and she's very keen to go. We're an hour away, but it'll be worth it.

Ooooo think we might come to this as its not far from us :-) looks like a goodun :-)
