Dante (pictured left) had his last run of the season at Dalston Green (2), with his first attempt at the new BE105 level, says Sam Arthur-Magennis.

The latest arrival on the yard is Bella (pictured right) unfortunately grey (eek!!!) but has come to get some mileage under her belt... Read More

Cara Shardlow writes….. So they have all had a quieter time through August after the regionals. Sando and Mario had a trip to Snainton trying to get some winter regional points and they won all the 4 classes they were in with three scores over 70% so I was thrilled with them. They both go out again... Read More
