A Co Armagh woman has set up her own riding school after working in a post office for 25 years.

Marian Tennyson (47) used to comb the countryside with her late father William Lappin to find somewhere to set up a riding school.

Now following his death last year, she has opened Smile Equestrian in Richhill with support from the Go For It Programme for new businesses.

She said: “I worked in Woodside Post Office for 25 years but having a riding school has been my dream since I was a child. But for different reasons, it didn’t happen. 

"Then the right property came along, and I decided to take the bull by the horns.”

The business is now up and running at Tullygarden Road in Richhill.
