16.2 liver chestnut mare 7 years old. Ruby was purchased from a dealer in Sussex. She had been hunting with an elderly gentleman with all the south-east packs, and has proved to be sensible, forward-going and an enthusiastic jumper! She was off for a while with a kick, which is the hazard of introducing a new horse into the herd, but is now back into work and really enjoying jumping our new showjumps and cross-country course!

She is ridden here by Brenda Jones, ex Mounted Police and one of our freelance instructors….and below, posing on Mickleham Downs with my schoolfriend Jo and with Georgie, our Yard Manager
