This is my eldest daughter Kate looking unusualy clean and demure, on one of our larger horses.

All three children were roped in to test and model our horses, and were happy to do so. Kate was particularly outgoing, keen to talk to customers and persuade them to buy one.

This photo was probably taken around 1986 for one of our brochures. Kate now runs craftcourses.com and is a successful businesswoman as well as mother.
