Harry Wallace - no saddle and no reins
This is our very sensible stable jockey, Major Harry Wallace who had a £10 bet with champion jockey, Will Biddick that he could jump his pointer over an upright barrel within the week. Will conceded defeat and Harry won his bet. A very good effort.
Hopefully that won't be the only time Will concedes defeat this season although I rather suspect it won't happen again....!
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.
