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

Larkhill is on amazingly and we are on our way with Velvet Royale and Epistle who are both entered in the mares maiden race. The wind is rocking the lorry from side to side so I expect it will be pretty wild on that open track.
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.
