Happy New Year – Gott Nytt År!

Happy New year to all! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2012 will bring peace and much happiness.

I’m now in Sweden looking forward to my first clinic of the year which starts tomorrow. It’s now full up with old friends and new, so it will be a great start to the new year.

Tony Dampier

Our friend, Mr Tony Dampier of Bury, Lancashire, England 15/06/1936 - 18/11/2011. This photograph was taken circa 1954 while he was serving in the British Household Cavalry.

I have a few places left on my next clinic near Manchester, UK on the 29th January. The clinic was originally organised with Tony Dampier, who very sadly died in a riding accident in November. Tony had visited us at Quinta do Brejo to work with our Lusitanos in the late summer last year. He was a lovely man and spent his whole life working classically with horses. This facebook page contains hundreds of tributes from people he taught to ride over many years and who have been touched by his kind, understanding way with horses and with people. It’s very sad indeed that Tony won’t be able to share his experience and expertise at the clinic but we hope that he’d be pleased with the work we’ll do.
