Sandal was given to rangers by our President Col Sir John Miller on 10th December 1985 through his niece Miss Sylvia Stanier.

Sandal Had a charmed life and in his early career he made his stage debut at the Cambridge theatre. He performed many tasks in public life with aplomb, hence his excellent performance as a figurehead horse for horse rangers taking part in the major parades and musical ride.

He was a kind and gentle horse with horse rangers and enjoyed retirement at speen farm for almost 3 years. On the 16 February 1998 he was in a field at the farm and chose that beautiful sunny morning to pass over to "the Happy Hunting Ground"
