Thursday 30 June
Finding our horses another career after racing is something that we take very seriously. Only last week I was emailed by a lady that was due to take on Mattaking - and was only too pleased to tell her everything I knew about hiom while he was at Fences Farm. Ravenstone Lad has gone on to great things in the show ring, and Kikos is doing a bit of everything! Tara Dancer is sunning herself in the south of France. Yesterday Smart Exit began his new career as an eventer with his first Dressage outing. SE was gifted to Alice by his generous owners, and Alice, after the sad loss of her other ride Magnifico, will bring him on slowly. If yesterday is anything to go by he will do very well - finishing 5th on his first try at it, and earning himself a rosette after only being in from the field for about 3 weeks. Alice was delighted - a video of his test can be sen on our Facebook page.
