The Aintree Equastrian Centre, Liverpool, was the venue for the RoR Showcase Day on Saturday, November 3rd.
The day featured live demonstrations, clinics and talks from top class trainers and experts, coaching riders on their former racehorses.
Special Constable Giles George with his horse Carhue, a retrained racehorse, and SC Meleri Jones were honoured to represent Dyfed-Powys Police at the event.
SC George said
“We had an amazing experience at the RoR showcase day in Aintree. We had a patrol of the race course on Friday evening with fire works in the background. Carhue, known at home as Huey, was amazing in the twilight. He only realised the following morning where he was and was a little nervous. With a bit of patience he was fantastic with lots of the public and organisers very complimentary of him and about the project.
“The highlight of the event for me had to be the escorting of a previous Grand National Winner past the winning post and grandstand at Aintree. A first for Dyfed- Powys Police Specials.”
Retired racehorse Huey has been with SC George since 2017 after retiring from racing in February 2016. Huey and SC Giles had their first outing at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair in November 2017.
SC George added
“I am really proud of Huey as he’s only been out of training for just over 18 months and has proved to be a pleasure to own and retrain.”
