Weekend Office Assistant

“I started riding at Contessa’s in 1978!

I saw an advert in the local Mercury advertising riding lessons, I called and organised a hack out from the farm. After several months Tina moved her horses to “The Gables” and Contessa’s was up and running. I rode regularly at Contessa, taking my stages 1+ 2. I had a horse called “Bold Knight” on loan who was everybody’s favourite, some of you will remember him I’m sure.

Since 2014, I have volunteered to help in the office on a Saturday. It’s great to see how the yard has grown and all the improvements that have taken place from those early days in 78! Even if some of our old friends are missing.”
