On Tuesday Bryan Beacham who owns a quarter of Lord Of House came to see two horses, he has decided that himself and Edwyn Good (also in Lord of House) are going to buy Area Access between them. He is a very nice winning Irish Pointer and I hope they have a lot of fun with him.
That evening Lucinda Green came to stay, she is world class event rider. She rode at Blenheim Horse Trails last weekend, she had previously won it on Be Fair in 1973 some 40 years ago! Even AP McCoy hasn't been riding that long! She watched the horses on the gallops the next morning and thoroughly enjoyed it.
On Wednesday we cantered 2nd lot around 'Back Of The Hill' gallop to bring the more forward ones on and give them a change of scene. Seventh Sky looks fantastic and is really thriving on his cantering. Stoney Silence is a big horse now, who is far more forward than he was last season and Who Owns Me is in tremendous form, he is very fresh up the gallops at the moment!
After a successful morning on the gallops a good owner Bill Brindle rang me and has brought a leg in Elmore Back. He is a lovely horse, Bill should have a great time with him.
Harry Bannister and Mark Grant came in today to school. We schooled Western King, Sands Cove and Scepticism with Mr Big as the lead horse. Everything jumped beautifully.
