Kingsley on the mend
We didn't parade Kingsley at the open day as his first set of shoes for the season were a little too tight and he was hopping lame - he is now very much on the mend. He is 17 hands and only 5years old and has some filling out to do but he is a lovely project for the future.
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.
