Introducing Lucy – by Lisa Gregory

As I introduce you all to the exceptional bunch of people who keep the trekking centre firing on all cylinders, we arrive at someone who is very well known to you all. That person is Lucy Powell, my versatile right-hand woman who can literally turn her hand to any job at the centre. She may […]

Princess – by Lucy Powell

It’s time for our regular Horse of the Week feature, and, as it’s my turn to choose, I have stolen the blog from my boss, Lisa. As you all know, I am one of the two coaches here at the trekking centre, and I teach both children and adults several days a week. My choice […]

Bistro Anniversary – by Lisa Gregory

Summer – By Lisa Gregory

Writing a Horse of the Week blog might sound like a simple task, but it’s actually quite tricky. And that is because all my horses here at Cannock Chase Trekking Centre are so fabulous! I am sure you would all agree! This week’s nomination was an easy one, and it is one that came from several […]

Lucy’s choice Lucy’s pick is Buttons, our beautiful tri-coloured Standard Bred x Irish gelding. Most of you know Buttons very well indeed. He […]
