A great run from The Hon Macinlay at Stratford on Saturday night. He is owned and bred by Kykie Allsopp and was 2nd in the competitive bumper ridden by Dominic Elsworth. We had Macinlay her last Winter and this Spring. He is a charming horse and jumps well too. He is an exciting prospect for the future with a wonderful temperament. We all love him and so does Mick Channon!
At last the weather has improved a little and the horses are starting to ‘do’ in the fields. They have had so many soakings in May. I used to dread looking at them in the early mornings when they looked so wretched and cold with their coats staring. Some of them will be starting work again in 3 weeks time so they need a proper holiday with sunshine and warmth.
The schooling field looks great! We have greened up a lot of the fences and the grass has been regularly topped. The ground is very good at the moment and a number of people have been over to use it. We charge £15 per horse for use of the field and £10 for use of our gallops. If both are used together then it’s £20 all in.
