It was the end of an era for me last Friday at Stratford Racecourse and I enjoyed every minute of a long but happy day. The day started with the PPORA awards lunch and the Paddock Pavilion was bursting at the seams as 320 people gathered to listen to guest speaker, Nicky Henderson. He was followed by Luke Harvey – who hosted what […]Read More Farewell to the AGA final, it was fun while it lasted!
My latest blog post takes a look at the new AGA Point-to-Point competition which will run throughout the season, with a special mention for the AGA Jokers! There’s also a look back at the Point-to-Point Authority Press and Media day, which took place on Thursday, 29th October at Stratford Racecourse. As ever, the story is brought to life with lots of photos. Enjoy!Read More Lots of fun to be had with the AGA Jokers – for boys and girls!
When is the AGA man not the AGA man? Answer = never, although I’m not complaining! There was no AGA involvement at Umberleigh and this was a day out to enjoy the end of season party atmosphere, chat (lots), take photos, and yes, enjoy a drink or two. All of that was achieved and we […]Read More National champions are saluted at Umberleigh, and the AGA man goes glamping!
This is a fabulous short film (accompanied by a fast paced soundtrack) which tells the story of an historic day at Chaddesley Corbett on Monday 25th May. The Albrighton & Woodland (South) hosted the Mountain Warehouse Anglo-Irish Point-to-Point Challenge, which also included the finale of the exciting AGA All Comers Championship. The film was made […]Read More Video – Anglo-Irish Point-to-Point Challenge 2015, Chaddesley Corbett

There will, of course, be lots of other questions to ask during the coming weeks, along with some detailed analysis. However, one […]Read More Pride and relief as the curtain comes down on another exciting season
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 […]Read More Mollington and Andoversford provide the setting for an AGA double header
What a contrast to Easter Monday 2014, Lydstep was my destination on that day, an eight hour round trip! This year, it was a short hop down the Fosse Way to Paxford, back home in time for tea! Lydstep was wonderful I might add, but next time I go I’m definitely staying over. Anyway, here […]Read More Spring sunshine, old friends and oh so close to a Royal AGA winner at Paxford
April has been and gone, we’re halfway through May and I’m playing catch up with my blog! That could involve an awful lot of words so I think the best plan is for me to let the photos do the talking, starting with a selection from Kimble!Read More A great day at Kimble ensures that April starts with a bang for AGA
