DAVID & LINDA WATKINS & FAMILY

David Watkins of Peterborough is no stranger to the show ring having shown Hackney ponies for many years with his parents, Dick and Audrey, and sister, Alecia, and later on his own. David's wife, Linda, and daughter, Chrissy, are also actively involved in this family hobby.

A few years back, with retirement looming from his job as Manager of the Peterborough Memorial Centre -- home of the Peterborough Petes -- and some "spare" time at the fairs, the family took the plunge and started showing a road horse -- Mr. Budmar.

Now fully "retired" as a "full-time" blacksmith, David has expanded both his road horse stable and his number of assistants.
