Last year Annabelle got her Trekking and Riding Society of Scotland Senior Ride Leader Certificate and early this year topped that off with the Centre Operator / Manager award. She also trained with some other centre members earlier this year at Gleneagles and now holds the BHS Riding and Road Safety Trainer's qualification.
