After discovering four mouldy stud books which had belonged to her great-grandfather, and following nine years of detailed research, Anne Britton has brought to light the history of a once-famous but long-forgotten equine – the Yorkshire Coach Horse. A cross between a Cleveland Bay and a racehorse, bred mainly in North Yorkshire, this elegant and powerful animal was once in demand across the world. Local breeders included John Lett of Scampston, Frank Stericker of Pickering and George Scoby of Beadlam. Join Anne to learn more about this lost horse and the importance of Ryedale in its history.
