Joined Brightwells in 1955. Terry Court, together with his late boss, was instrumental in establishing the equine department as the country’s leading equestrian auctioneers. Brightwells now sells more horses and ponies than any other company in Europe and no other firm in the world handles the diversity of horses and ponies.

His career stared as an articled clerk with the company in 1965. Since then Mr Morgan has been involved in many parts of the company assisting in equine, fine art and the vehicle departments as a valuer and auctioneer, as well carrying out his Professional work in the agricultural department, with valuations of land and farm sales.
