Irish show jumper Cameron Hanley has to find a new base as Michael Bates at whose Essex yard Cameron has been for a year, has put his home on the market.

Michael, a former BSJA chairman and FEI committee member, is currently looking for a small farm in a different part of Essex or Suffolk.

He has already made plans for the sale of some of his horses. Lavaletto will go to Duncan Inglis to be sold, while Claydons Peter Pan is with Geoff Luckett until a sale is made.
