The summer pre training is well underway with eighty percent of the horses back in work, some already on week six of our twelve week regime. Others have just started and today we had eight three and four year olds starting off along with the usual fresh bucks and spins. Included in this batch are three that we bought at Arqana last year and who have all had a full year pre training so they should come to hand quicker than the usual three year olds.
We are also using the new carpet gallop a lot with horses having their first canters on it, some having a easy day cantering round it and many of them schooling over the Easyfix small fences. A cross between a hurdle and a small fence these have a rounded belly and the horses seem to jump them really well, over four circuits the horses get into a rhythm and gain plenty of confidence.
We were most impressed with new recruit Fyfin Patsy. pictured, who on her first session led the string jumping boldly and accurately. She is a winner of a mares point to point and should be ready to run in late August. There are two 25% shares available in her for £6,500 then £475 a month to cover all in training, race fees etc. Please contact me soon if you are interested in a share.
