TODAY’S Timeout looks back at a prominent businessman with a love of showjumping.

Douglas Bunn founded the All England Jumping Course at in Hickstead.

He became well known for his work turning the showjumping ground into a modern and respected venue.

Sussex-born Mr Bunn attended Chichester High School and went on to practise law, as well as becoming an accomplished showjumper and businessman.

He represented Britain at the Royal International Horse Show and put his knowledge and skills into practice by developing the arena in Hickstead, which he bought in 1959.

The showjumping arena became popular after initial concerns about its viability and went on to host prestigious events such as world championships and the Nations’ Cup.

Mr Bunn married three women during his life and had a large family, with many sons and daughters.

He is pictured here today at a screening of a film his family featured in, which was being shown at his local Odeon Cinema in 1963.

He went to watch the showjumping feature Look At Life with his children from his first marriage to Rosemary Pares Wilson – Claudia, Lavinia and Theresa.

Mr Bunn is also shown with his daughter Theresa – on a horseback and in 1964, receiving a trophy from Lady Jones in Brighton.

Another horse-loving man Terence Sargent, owned the Ponderosa stables in Moulsecoomb, Brighton.

The Romany owner is pictured at the stables in 1967 and again while riding in a horse-drawn carriage on his wedding day in Brighton.

On the subject of weddings, we have two pictures of old romantics Thomas Nolan and Rosaline Mitchell. Thomas, 91, and Rosaline, 73, married in Brighton in 1967. Can anyone tell us more about the happy pair?
