David has left for the Olympics in Tokyo, look out for his diary up-dates!


David has left the building!  We wish Dr David Marlin a safe journey as he heads to the Tokyo Olympics on his horse welfare mission and we can’t wait to see his video diary while he is away!  As many of you know I was keen to assist David at the Olympics but we couldn’t make it happen this time around, so I am tasked with job of keeping our members informed and engaged while David is away and running the webinars alone for the next couple of weeks…I’m really looking forward to it!

We have a busy schedule:

While David is away it is business as usual and the project will not be slowing down, we have our fly rug testing to be released, Dr Gillian Tabor and Charlie Unwin running webinars and our Fly Rug Giveaway Winner Announcement not to mention some short webinars David has produced for you being released in the coming days so please stay tuned!


Good Luck David and stay safe,

Sarah and all the DDM Team.
