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
Good days, sunny days, windy days, fun days and long days, we’ve had them all during the last four weeks, and we’ve enjoyed every single one of them, starting at Chaddesley Corbett on 18th April and finishing at Whitfield on 17th May.Read More Blog catch up time for the AGA man, starting at Chaddesley Corbett in April and finishing at Whitfield in May!
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
A very busy week in the AGA world meant that my blog from the Vine & Craven has had to be put on hold until Saturday evening. That’s fine with me, although Mrs S has had to settle for The Voice and Casualty while I tap away on the keyboard, as opposed to a trip […]Read More AGA champions That’s Rhythm and Page Fuller are ‘Still In Total Control’
Five minutes after arriving I was scurrying back to the car to retrieve my sunglasses and my brand new selfie stick! Those who know me well will be aware that I rarely miss an opportunity for a selfie (or a piece of cake, Heather), but this particular selfie wasn’t my idea…Read More Sunglasses required on a glorious day at Larkhill as Sarah Dawson increases her lead in the AGA All Comers championship
We had a good feeling as we headed down the Fosse Way to Cocklebarrow Farm on Sunday (25th January), in fact such was the good mood that we were even singing along to Steve Wright’s Sunday Love Songs (we like Wrighty but we don’t usually do love songs!). Anticipation was high that we would witness some […]Read More Point-to-point horse racing with a difference as the Heythrop provide something for everyone on a superb day in the Cotswolds
It’s 6am, the car is completely white and it is foggy and freezing outside. I’m grumpy and I don’t want to leave the house, I even put this on social media (along with a photo of me looking suitably grumpy). Mrs S is a non-runner so I hit the road on my own, along with […]Read More Slow start for the AGA man but Larkhill is a huge success, despite the dodgy playlist!
So, it’s 6.30 on Monday morning and we’re discussing the scene outside (it’s minus 5), and words such as ‘Arctic’, ‘penguins’ and ‘freezing’ are being used. Mrs S says “it won’t be on”, I’m adamant that it will be on. Fast forward a few hours and the near tropical Worcestershire sunshine has worked its magic… it was never […]Read More AGA man spots penguins on the course but Chaddesley Corbett beats the frost to serve up a pointing treat
