Writer and AFRA member Linda Chamberlain has published Discount for AFRA members on the novel The First Vet

The First Vet by Linda Chamberlain is a story of love and corruption inspired by real events. It is a love story based on the life and work of Bracy Clark, an animal right's campaigner of 200 years ago, before we ever coined the phrase.

Wanted: Young, small/lightweight rider for Welsh Section A

We have a totally outgrown small Section A at home if there is a young rider out there who would like to ride him as he is wasted just as a companion pony. He has fantastic paces and is very easy to do, is well bred, registered and has been shown in hand and lead rein in the past. He is very placid and obedient on the lead rein, but off it, he needs to be ridden by a competent sensitive rider. He is NOT a riding school plod and does not appreciate being kicked or pulled, so would not suit a complete novice. No stable duties required unless you want to, but I would expect him to be groomed and tack cleaned. You are welcome to bring your instructor and have lessons here as we have a ménage. Feet, teeth, vaccinations all up to date but hasn't been ridden since last summer. Parental supervision will be required at all times. £5 per week contribution to costs. Please call for a chat or email any questions, if interested.

Our wonderful Oscar is still looking for his ideal retirement home. He is a 15hh cob gelding with a very sweet, gentle and trustworthy character. He has given many years of service in a riding school and we feel he now deserves to take life a little easier. He would still enjoy a few gentle hacks a week with a lightweight rider who would be prepared to give him a loving, caring home for the rest of his days. He currently lives out but will be stabled during the winter months. He would make an ideal companion having lived in a herd all of his working life.
