We were keen to buy Elmono at the Goffs sales and indeed he is back at Arlary after we went to £30,000 for him. A talented tough hurdler he has shown us when schooling at home that he has the scope to go novice chasing and we have some nice targets for him in the early autumn. He is for sale and will be a super horse for someone; please contact me soon if you are interested. Elmono is pictured coming in from the gallops with Sky Khan
We bid unsuccessfully on another couple of horses but with a few more still to sell we are happy with our numbers. One that is off the For Sale list is Looks Like Murt who has been bought by John Adam; he should give John who is one of our longstanding owners plenty of fun and success this autumn.
With the majority of our horses back in training we are looking for an extra full time work rider to join our team. We offer plenty of riding and this is a position for an experienced rider, though racing experience is not necessary; there is more information on our Vacancy page.
Our water treadmill team have been working hard with fifteen to twenty horses on the machine each day. We are delighted with the results of the water treadmill work to build muscle, keep horses back and joints supple and in recovery from minor and major injury. When we bought the treadmill in March we had no idea how useful it would be.
