Schooling morning for some youngsters

Raining again in Adlestrop but despite the weather, the horses are beginning to come in their summer coats and looking bright and well.  Hopeful rather than confident of some better ground in the coming weeks and we will be short on runners until next weekend.

We schooled a few horses in the outdoor school today with Danny Hiskett onboard.  It’s great that Danny is now back with us full-time as off this week and got off to a great start riding Minella Whisper to victory at Huntingdon.

We had a few of the youngsters over show jumps this morning, including Mrs Barnes and Colin Pocock’s promising Stowaway four-year-old.  Hopefully the former will be out in a bumper in April, whilst the four-year-old will be out next season.
