Anne Littledale, former British Show Pony Society judge and founder of the Littledale Stud, died on 17 January, aged 95.

Mrs Littledale was a supporter of hunting and eventing and helped run the Tickham hunt branch of the Pony Club in the 1950s.

She set up her competition business, then the Gwersyllt Stud, in 1963.

Philly Adams, her granddaughter, took over in the 80s and the stud now specialises in sport horses.
