Steeplecase farm had been gifted to the Dixon family after a steeplechase round had been won by a Dixon. A condition of the gift was that on every 50th anniversary a Dixon had to re-ride the course. This condition lapsed until Mr Nugant bought the estate which the farm was part of. Dawn Dixon’s father was in hospital so she decided to run course herself. Then a fall while training made her partially blind, but she was determined to continue.
