I was out in Botswana checking my Facebook pages when I saw a post from Juliet Clarke, a dealer. She looked ideal for the school so I messaged her from Botswana to make the purchase! I then contacted Mum, who was not at all phased by my overseas purchase and arranged payment and collection! Willow settled well and was schooled by Saskia Kew as a project during her Apprenticeship. Saskia went on to become one of our instructors and Willow a valuable member of our Equine team.
Saksia has now changed careers but still comes to teach for us sometimes on a freelance basis and, of course, ride Willow from time to time!
Willow made friends with Maple who arrived from the same dealer a few months later. Both are pictured on Willow’s featured image.
