A bit more snow this morning made riding out a bit more tedious but the gallops were open so the horses had some cantering.
We had a couple to school so this afternoon Saint Freule and Scales Of Justice went to a local indoor school to jump some showjumps with Derek and Blair. While a nice change in routine for the horses it is also useful to teach them a good technique over poles and fillers.
Time flies and our 2018 calendar is onto its third page already. All of our owners should have received theirs already and we have a number spare which can be bought for £14; it features photographs by John Grossick of our horses and also has all the race fixtures and Northern and Yorkshire area point to point dates. Please CONTACT us to purchase.
Eugenio has been in Ireland today vetting horses for us and I am delighted that Buddha Scheme will be joining the yard after a clean bill of health. He is pictured above after being placed on debut in the four year old maiden at the Tinahely point to point. A good strong son of Milan he should come into his own over staying distances in the next couple of seasons and will race for an existing owner.
