So, another week flies by, no runners sadly, “good to firm” just not my thing, illogical perhaps but there we go.  Not a bad week weather-wise, harvest started, yes, that’s “started”, and tatties being lifted, good progress with the horses and now at the stage of holding back on a few of them a little bit. P1050405 A splendid trip to Kelso nevertheless to watch team “Kinneston” compete in the Jockeys Showjumping Challenge, very well they did too considering the jockeys were considerably more apprehensive than they would have been before a 3m chase at full speed – all good fun and lots of money raised for two very worthy charities. P1050409  Lucy is at Hexham this afternoon to ride Forestside in the 5.05, we are making a few entries for Perth next week – Afterclass, Bertie Milan, Andhaar, Jet Master, Isla Pearl Fisher and Jane’s Fantasy all have options.  Some pics from earlier in the week…
