We are delighted with our new Carpetgallop gallop which has been swiftly constructed by John Dewar using Mark Gilbert's carpet surface. As an additional facility for routine canters and schooling it should benefit all of the horses. Dr Hooves and Stephen were the first to school on it today, pictured.
The Goffs Uk horses have settled in and Stephen sat on the three year old Thunder In Milan this morning. He is a cracking youngster who is strong and sensible, his stride is so long that he was hard to keep up with when long reining.
Scu and I are on the way to the final irish point to point sale at Cheltenham. There are a couple who we have our eye on. Then we are heading to Ireland for two points this weekend, again with a couple of entered horses to view. This is the time of year that we bought Highland Hunter privately and there are a number of similar talented types due to run.
