Welcome Bob and Jutland. First up, everyone meet Bob! This handsome chap is retiring from English Heritage after 7 years of service. English Heritage is a charity that manages over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places.
Bob was based at Audley End House and Gardens, a Victorian country home in Essex.
Whilst at English Heritage, Bob was based in the stable yard section of the grounds, assisted with bringing the ‘Victorian Stable Yard’ to life. He was greeted by visitors of all ages and showed them the stables in working condition. Bob was also involved with many public events to show the visitors various aspects of Victorian Equestrianism from grooming demonstrations to performing the role of a Victorian harness horse. Prior to joining the English Heritage team, Bob was a riding school horse and taught many people all of ages and abilities to ride.
What an amazing life and job this boy has had! At the age of 20 years old, it has been decided that Bob will hang up his harness and join us at The Horse Trust for a well earned retirement!
Please join us in welcoming Bob! You can read more about Bob here.
Next up to join our new arrivals gang is Jutland!
This lovely chap is retiring from the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment (HCMR) after 10 years service.
After serving a decade attached to the Queen’s Life Guard’s, we are proud to offer Jutland his retirement here at The Horse Trust at the age of 17. Jutland has a fabulous history as he’s served in numerous high profile parades over the years. These include the Queen’s Birthday Parade, State Visits, the Lord Mayor Show, the Royal Wedding in 2011, Diamond Jubilee Parade, the Major Generals Inspections and State Openings of Parliament. An extremely impressive career indeed!
We’re sure you will join us in wishing Jutland a long and happy retirement here with us. Read more about Jutland here.
We’re looking forward to getting to know Bob and Jutland better over the coming months and showing them to our visitors.
