Christmas scene has come early
Paddy was the first one down as 'Crash Dummy'
Oh, we had such fun!! Christina joined us later with her two girls Tula and Una and they also absolutely loved it, although we didn't risk letting them go on their own in the big sledge as it was hitting the fence at the bottom rather hard and it didn't seem a very sensible idea!
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.
