Both Max and Mitchell had a very successful event when they attended the Greater London Regional Dressage Competition with Magpie (and of course Hilary).

Max gained a First place in his Countryside Challenge class, and was Third in his Dressage class.

Mitchell was Second in his Dressage class and also gained Second place in his Countryside Challenge.

This means that they have both qualified for the National Competition which will take place at Hartpury College in July.



Wow, we have just been given a substantial amount which was raised by the Co-op Store on Mottingham.  The Co-op Group nationwide have raised more than £9 million in the last six months and this is distributed to local causes nominated by the area stores (3 per store).  We are very grateful to everyone who has contributed – via their Co-op Membership which give 1% of their spending towards the fund.

We are delighted to say that we have been nominated for the next six months, which will be until October 2017.
