Farewell to Bernie

We are very sad that our great friend and hard-working Bernie will be leaving us on 2nd July after more than 10 years of service at the AFRC.  His co-owner, Sue, will be taking him closer to where she lives near Eastbourne to enjoy semi-retirement where he will be joining his friend Bluebell for a well-earned rest.  Bernie was never one to stay at the back of the ride, he was always keen to be at the front, he gave all his riders the most fabulous forward-going ride and will be greatly missed.  Thank you Bernie.

We are planning a farewell BBQ for Bernie on the weekend of 1-2 July where everyone is welcome as long as you bring a carrot!!  Exact day and time to be posted on facebook soon.

Welcome to Bertie

While Bernie will be leaving us, Bertie has recently joined the yard.  He is a 7 y.o skewbald gelding - very good-looking and with a great temperament.  Although he is still very unfit and a little on the portly side, he has now joined the riding school and is proving to be very popular.  Follow his progress on our facebook page.
