Mollington and Andoversford provide the setting for an AGA double header

An AGA double header started on Grand National day at Mollington – with a huge screen so nobody missed the big race – and finished with a first ever visit to Andoversford the following day. Two AGA champions had a starring role and a Claire Hart treble was the highlight at Mollington, while there was a great win for Hannah Lewis in the Cotswolds, where Mark Wall also rode a double.

This is definitely one of the best dressed men in pointing (in the world!)
