Spud in lorry with his pregnant Mrs
Doris in her new home
We took Doris to her new 'Forever Home' today. She broke down very badly two years ago and I just couldn't bear the thought of having her put down as she is the loveliest person. I found out about this charity called Horses4Homes where they find a suitable home for horses that can no longer race and they spend a lot of time making sure that the match works. Jayne is her new owner and they are perfect for each other.Must go as out to supper but will give a complete recap of all that has happened lately tomorrow.
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.
