Devastating day as we said goodbye to Grand Manoeuvre ?? RIP … there’s a very bright star shining tonight ?


I can’t believe I’m writing this ? today we had to say goodbye to Grand Manoeuvre ? Simply the most wonderful horse with the biggest of hearts ? … he gave me some unbelievable rides round Badminton and the European Championships – he literally made it feel like we were flying!! It was his personality/character that stood him apart from the others and that will be missed the most ?

There will never be another horse who gives me the feeling like Grand Manoeuvre did popping the Vicarage Vee and launching into the lake at Badminton …..✈️Such a special boy ? #memories

Thankyou for everything ? RIP Grand Manoeuvre … run free and enjoy jumping the clouds ?? xxx
