Owner’s long service brings reward for Windfall

Old-fashioned loyalty reaped a double dividend for horse-loving Chris Williams.

After 30 years’ service with Bookers cash-and-carry, Llandudno Junction, Mr Williams was asked to choose a gift – and he opted for a new saddle for his ageing horse, Windfall.

The horse has been stabled at nearby Aberconwy Equestrian Centre for 25 years, so its owners decided to give Windfall their own loyalty bonus – a new bridle to match his saddle.

Adrian Thomas, who runs the AEC tack shop, said: “Windfall is the granddad of the yard and already gets special treatment. We were delighted to reward Chris’s loyalty.”
