In the next couple of weeks we will be bringing plenty of the winter horses back in from their summer break. I have been delighted with the progress they have made in the past couple of months and they all look to have done really well. I had the opportunity to take a couple of photos between lots this morning, so pictured left are Ben’s Folly and Winds of War, and above in the foreground is Wait For Green.

Our new additions to the personnel here have settled in well and both will be riding for the yard this week, with Michael Byrne on David and Sue Luke’s J’Adhere at Stratford this evening and Rob Kirk on Tae Kwon Do at Worcester tomorrow for Students Love The Races. Both Michael and Rob prepared in the best way possible – with a few lots this morning! Pictured above are Reality Show (Michael Byrne) and Slip (Erin O’Loughlin), right are Jan Jandura (Rob Kirk) and The Big Freeze (Bradley Gibbs).

I am sure that my two office co-inhabitants will agree that the progress of the new offices being built is both rapid and very welcome! As the yard has developed we have gradually outgrown our original space and we are all very much looking forward to the completion of the new building in the very near future – as you can see we aren’t too far away!
