A brilliant evening was had by all with number one bestselling author, national treasure and broadcaster Clare Balding as she introduced her very first children’s book ‘The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop’.  She shared stories from her own childhood surrounded by animals, offered expert advice and the book signing queue was long but worth the wait to have a one to one chat with the remarkable and wonderful Clare Balding.
