We've moved!

Well – we did it! At last the move is complete, without undue disruption to the horses. I can’t say the same for the humans or canines as Pat and I are completely exhausted and the dogs are totally confused!!

The horses have settled in really well and are enjoying exploring the lanes and bridleways around Cranmore – Sam, Bea and Hannah have been in everyday riding out so there was as little disruption to their routine as possible. Darkest, Palmaria and Ballyantics would have been ready to run in early October but as the point to points don’t start until the end of November, I shall give them a couple of quiet weeks and let them down a little before they start preparing for their new role as pointers.

Pat and I have moved back to my Mums house which luckily is only 2 minutes from the new yard. As I write this, I am looking at a sea of boxes and bags and general clutter which has to be sorted out and found a new home - That’s for another day! Reflecting on my decision to give up my licence, even though it was the right decision, I am still very sad. I shall miss my involvement with the other trainers and the amazing camaraderie between all of the people involved: Jockeys; Valets; Racecourse staff as well as grooms and horses. There is nothing quite like a day at the races, win or lose – of course.

I shall be following my rules horses, some of whom will be running early in the season, which will be very exciting and I wish them all a very safe and successful season.

This might be the last update for a couple of weeks while I get the internet connection sorted out at home. I can be contacted by email: or on my mobile in the daytime.
