I've recently returned to Liverpool after a number of years, and memories of my earliest riding experiences popped up. I rode in the early 70s at Gateacre riding school, and was trying to find any further info about it, when I started reading the comments on a thread on this site.

I recognise the horses mentioned, Driver, Ala, Jorrocks, Desmond, Squire, Merrylegs, Oliver, Kate, and a few of the riders too, I think? I also remember the little book, and waiting with anticipation to be allocated my ride, Driver was my very favourite.
I always dreamed of owning my own horse, a goal not quite reached, but my love of horses and riding has never vanished. Some brilliant memories of those days at Gateacre, and Jim and Joan Blundell.
So good to read of others happy horsey memories at the Stables.
