It was with great sadness we learnt that Fionn has passed away over the winter following two bouts of colic.  Fionn was such a handsome horse and a real Irish charmer.  When we were based at Langshot and desperately short of ponies, his owner Carol Perry generously offered to volunteer with us and box over her horse Fionn, and his companion Thunder, every week for us to borrow.  We are incredibly grateful to Carol for bringing Fionn and Thunder for over four years and even taking them to the Regional Challenge Day annually so that the older children could compete.  He really was a special horse with beautiful markings and a great character who made an impression on everyone he met – he will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
