Beautiful October sunset
Another lovely day and all horses worked really well - The first horses to go on the racetrack will be Top Garry, Ted Thistle and We Never Give Up, closely followed by Budge, Glory Hunter and Velvet Cloud - The first three have just started fast work and we are aiming for the Atherstone on the 16th December.It seems to have come round really quickly - Can't wait!
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.
