Having had a quiet time for runners over Christmas, we have made a few entries on the flat and over jumps for next week.   As we all know, horses do not know it’s the festive season so there’s lots of work to be done by our dedicated staff.  However the horses are enjoying the extra carrots whilst the team are enjoying the extra chocolates.  Thank you to all who donated.

It was great to welcome Laurence Robertson MP, his wife Annie and Martin Ryland to the yard yesterday morning.  They are all members of The Adlestrop Club and came to feed Master Vintage and Muthabir some Christmas carrots.  Congratulations to Laurence on another whopping victory in his constituency of Tewkesbury.

Also congratulations to Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls on their well-deserved OBE’s and also Guy Disney for his MBE.  Guy is a remarkable young man who we have known for many years.  Amongst his many achievements includes riding winners with a prosthetic leg.
