New beginnings…

We seem to be lucky with the weather at the moment, we still have the young National Hunt bred horses out although preparations are being made now to bring them in for the winter. There have been some lovely mornings recently and these were taken yesterday with the sunrise lighting up the yard and just had to take some photos…

Schooling yesterday morning were Next Edition, Cleve Cottage,  Chloe’s Image and Eastview Boy – we have multiple entries at Wetherby on Friday for the jumpers and we are  looking forward to seeing in action the likely runners –  Improved, Little Bruce, Eastview Boy, Episode and Chloe’s Image – its going to be a busy day.

Schooling today were Tara Time and Episode – Tara for the first time over the baby hurdles (keen but a good start) and Episode jumping beautifully ahead of his comeback, he has always been a natural but has had a year on the sidelines after an injury picked up on his first start over hurdles at Aintree.

Hugh’s Secret arrived back into training yesterday – he is even more diminuitive than ‘Little Bruce’ but we have had plenty of success with small horses – Goldan Jess, Amazing King and Nautical Nitwit would all be around the 15.1hh mark and it hasn’t stopped them! At the other end of the scale we have the giant ‘Transient bay’ who we are looking forward to schooling later next week – we will be bringing more schooling videos as we have a number of hurdlers progresing to novice chasing this time..
