It is a beautiful morning and we are off to Barbury Castle for our first start of the season. It is Scott's very first ride and he is SO excited. He has been counting down the days and complaining that time has never dragged so much. Now the big day has arrived and he couldn't sleep last night, so I hope we don't have tears before bedtime! The great thing is that there is absolutely no pressure as Budge didn't even finish a race last season and was on the transfer list, so he is just there for Scott to have a practice run on and if they both finish all in one piece we will be absolutely delighted.
