An every day account of a small racing yard and the highs and lows....

A very sad day yesterday with the funeral of my best friend, Sally. The church was packed. Her children Alexandra and Ed gave a joint tribute to their Mum which was very emotional. She would have been so proud.
Pauline has been race riding her own horses in point to points for 15 years and is now training with Doug. Pauline has recently got her trainers permit. They are both passionate about National Hunt racing and achieving maximum potential from their horses in the best possible way. This is why ‘Equine Fitness’ is a very exciting new business for them.
In 2006 Doug eventually plucked up the courage (it only took 7 years!) to propose to Pauline whilst they were on holiday in the Maldives and they married in the Lake District in June 2007.
