It was a privilege for Dr Marvin Firth MRCVS to be invited to Highclere Stud as a guest of the Brooke Equine charity. Here, Dr Firth was able to see true performance in the production of young racehorses shown by the very capable staff of Highclere (home to Downton Abbey). Whilst at the lunch, Dr Firth was able to meet and discuss horses with the Olympian cyclist turned rider, Victoria Pendleton. A beautiful day, beautiful horses and lunch! Thank you to all involved!
