Bob Cherry's Account of 'Village Life'
Bob Cherry's Account of 'Village Life' is divided into the sections below, some of which are quite large and may take a little while to load. It was recorded in 1992.
Horse Show Champion
In October 1962 an Ashendon bred horse won the Working Hunter of the Year at the Horse of the Year show at Wembley. ‘Makeway’ was bred by his owner Roz Boughton from a pony costing £25! Roz hunted him regularly with the Bicester Hunt and following his success at the Horse of the Year Show, Makeway went on to compete successfully as a Grade A showjumper. The Bucks Herald reported the Wembley triumph.
