MAGGIE TANSLEY

Please join us in saying farewell to our good friend Maggie Tansley, who unexpectedly passed away yesterday after bravely battling a devastatingly short illness.  Maggie was passionate about horses and their powerful connection with disabled people, and volunteered at the Unicorn Centre for many years as an enthusiastic and inspiring instructor. She joined our Board of Directors in 2006 going on to be a generous and hardworking Chairman from 2010 to 2016.  

 

Many Unicorn Centre riders will remember our lovely ponies Grenadier and Biggles who Maggie loaned to us and were firm favourites with our learners and riders.  Grenadier was one of our stars who competed successfully in dressage at the RDA National Championships and Biggles hit media fame with his fabulously luxurious mane extensions for his appearance at the Championships in the Countryside Challenge.

 

Maggie was also very active in RDA nationally as well as being Yorkshire and Cleveland Region Chairman until earlier this year, tirelessly supporting and advising our local groups.

 

Many of you will also know her as a successful breeder and judge of Dales ponies in County Durham which stemmed from her passion for horse welfare.

 

Maggie will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her and we send our condolences to her family, friends and colleagues.

10 May 2017
