As a Trustee of WHW I am very proud to announce announce that the World Horse Welfare’s garden has won a GOLD medal at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show!

Please help WHW make it 2 out of 2 and win the People’s Choice Award too? Voting only takes a minute and can be done HERE:

My congratulations to garden designers, Woolcott and Smith Garden Design and our wonderful donor who made it possible. It is not only a truly beautiful garden but so clever in that it includes education and awareness of the importance of horse welfare.
On a personal note I am delighted that Ballaseyr Royale’s shoe was part of the sculpture, Clippy, by Tom Hill Sculpture.
