We are off to Ampton tomorrow with Jess (We Never Give Up) and Budge and our two novice riders, Lucy and Ben who are very excited about having their third ride over fences. There has been no rain and the ground will be quick enough so we are leaving Ted Thistle and Glory Hunter at home as they prefer it on the soft side. Both Budge and Jess love quick ground so we will make the most of it for now. I am enjoying this mild weather though as the forecast looks as though it is going to be much colder at the end of next week. It is lovely to see the days beginning to lengthen already. Spring is almost here - Happy days!
