    Dear Paul, Gill and Donald,
    Thanks so much from both of us for our extremely informative and enjoyable yard visit last Thursday, culminating in an excellent lunch. We were particularly impressed by your way of looking after and riding all the horses, and their obvious satisfaction with “their lot”. No wonder that you are successful in competitions, when you work as you do at home.
    It was sad that we didn’t meet Bobby, but she was clearly well occupied abroad.
    As we left, you were arranging a likely lorry drive to Germany to collect Bobby’s new horse. This sounded quite an expedition, but we hope it all went well, and we look forward to seeing the horse in due course (to that end, what’s his name?)
    We will be at the winter championships at Hartpury, so we’ll keep our eyes open for Jubilee Farm tests, and we’ll be wishing you well throughout.
    Many thanks again from both of us.
    Geoff & Tricia Callow
    Note for Penny & Lorrie at BDSC: This yard visit for two was my BDSC raffle prize at Stoneleigh. Beats a bottle of wine any day!

    Hi Jane,
    I would just like to say a huge thank you for sending my certificate. It means the world to me as the internationals I represented GB at during 2013 were with my late horse Danny.
    Best wishes
