Members of Annabelles Equestrian, in Henstead, near Beccles, shocked owner Annabelle Block on Saturday, January 6.

Ms Block was gifted a bespoke show jump in club colours which will now take pride in the ménage where all riding lessons take place.

Vicky Collier, whose child attends the school, said: “Annabelle herself is a truly inspirational young lady.

“At just 24-year-old, not only is she a very talented horsewoman regularly seen out competing but she has a very natural and enthusiastic way with children, parents and animals alike.”

At the end of its first year Annabelles Equestrian boasts an impressive 115 members, ranging from four to 25 years old.

Other successes include a huge club presence at the Sotterley Show during the summer – with over 60 class entries.

The club also arranged an informative trip to Chigwell Riding Trust For Special Needs in November.
