Cheltenham was cancelled on the Friday so we went on Saturday instead and saw a wonderful eight race card with some fantastic races. We then drove on down to Devon and stayed at the Stag hunters Inn in Brendon where we had a delicious supper and a very sociable evening with the locals. The following morning we went for a walk admiring the beautiful countryside and then went on to the brand new point to point course near Silverton.
We couldn't believe how many people were there and it was great racing. Paige Topley who rode out for us at the end of last season had a third with her horse which she trains with her Dad, David. It was only her fourth ride and she rode beautifully and did well to come third. It won't be long before she has her first winner.
