We have a new horse in the yard - Doctor Kingsley and our first 'owner rider', Ben.
Ben has been working at Paul Webber's for the last two and a half years and was hoping to get more rides with him to put his name on the map as a jockey. The rides haven't come so Ben's parents have bought him a horse to point to point in the hope that he will get more outside rides as a result. He is 100% dedicated to the sport and deserves a chance - Doctor Kingsley is seven years old and has been placed 5 times out of 9 runs so he is due a win. So far he had been very well behaved and went on the horse walker for the first time this morning with no trouble. Ben will be coming in at lunchtimes and evenings to ride and muck him out.
