Wednesday 11th May, 2017

A Wednesday work morning with Ian Popham and Danny Hiskett in riding out.  Lizzie Prowting’s racing manager Hannah Bishop, came to view the Prowting string who all pleased in their work.

We worked and schooled Cosmic King who is entered at Warwick and Towcester over the next week.

A date for your diary is Sunday 11th June, when our wonderful village has it’s annual Open Day.

The highlight of the occasion is the Fun Dog Show – this year judged by Eleanor Tomlinson who plays Demelza in Poldark.  Eleanor is the daughter of friend, actor and racing commentator Malcolm Tomlinson.  I’ve known Eleanor since she was a small child and it has been a pleasure to see her turn into a wonderful actress.  She is a great dog lover and I am sure the occasion will be enormous fun.

With a jazz band, Pimms bar, open gardens, lunches and teas along with lots of other attractions including terrier racing this year – it’s a day not to be missed.
