Bushfield Court Meets Martin Clunes

7th November, 2011

Residents from Bushfield Court's riding group have met Men Behaving Badly and Doc Martin star Martin Clunes.

Group

He was at Gartmore Riding School in his new role as President of the British Horse Society to open a new centre where disabled rides can get a more hands-on experience with the horses.

He took some time to talk to residents from ExtraCare's Bilston housing scheme, and told them how dedicated they were. He was particularly impressed when he heard about their 8am start to get to the stables that day!

Bushfield's riding group have had a very busy year practising and studying: they rehearsed from March for a Wild West show in August, and have just taken Stage 1 in Equitation and Stable Management, following the syllabus from the Association of the British Riding Schools.
