AGMA celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary

On the 26th September AGMA turned 50 years old.

In view of this wonderful milestone AGMA had not one but TWO celebrations!

On the 27th June 2018 AGMA closed its doors for the day and opted to take all employees to Carlisle Racecourse where they enjoyed dining in a Hospitality Box and sponsoring the prestigious Carlisle Bell. The oldest sporting trophy in the WORLD.

AGMA staff spent the day in 31 degree heat and I must say it was a wonderful day to not be in the office!

Watching the AGMA Stablemate Carlisle Bell was amazing, especially as staff entered the Parade Ring and helped to decide ‘best turned out’. We also presented the winner with an engraved AGMA Stablemate cup.

Winner – WAARIF ridden by CJ McGovern and trained by D O’Meara.

This really was a special day and enjoyed by all.


On 26th September 2018 was AGMA’s official 50th Anniversary.

To say thank you to all staff members, a past and present Luncheon was arranged. AGMA invited retired colleagues and guests to celebrate.

We dined on the best Fish and Chips (in my opinion) Haltwhistle has to offer- Oceans Takeaway. It was lovely listening to our retirees relay stories of AGMA from near on 50 years ago and to show them how AGMA has grown and developed through the years.
