A gorgeous sunny morning which included some jumping, heart monitoring and over-ground scoping.  Now on my way to Doncaster Breeze Up sales to see if we can add to our flat string.  We are keen to get some more flat horses at Adlestrop.

Owner Steven Smith (pictured) is doing something quite remarkable in a few weeks time by walking the London Marathon.  Steven was told he was never walk again following an armed robbery in France in 2011.  Through courage and determination, he is leading a natural a life as possible following his horrendous ordeal.  I trained Steven’s first ever horse, Mighty Phantom and we have had horses for him for many years.  The Adlestrop Club will be visiting his Hunscote Stud in May.  If you would like to support him on his incredible effort – please visit his fundraising page http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/vmgiving/index.html  where he is raising money for the Nichols Spinal Injury Foundation http://www.nsif.org.uk/
