Plus 8 and dry when driving in.

Another month gone! Was January a dry one for you?.. It wasn't for me!

Nick and Shan Cook called in last night to see Nicks KBRS horse Balleticon and his recently retired Younevercall.

David Bass was in this morning..

Kyntara and Imperial Aura had a jumping session with Laura Collett.
