They are now looking to sell Oldencraig but with the intention of Vicki – 16 times national dressage champion – staying on as a riding instructor.

Former soldier Ian, 51, said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed developing Oldencraig and developing it into the world class centre it is today.

“Vicki has taught Toni Poole, the wife of John Terry, to ride here and helped take her from being a total novice into the international level rider she is today.

“When a sale goes through I will be happy to work here for a year free of charge helping with the changeover but I’m 51 now and I want another challenge in life.”
