Momentum constructing – an replace from Kinneston – Kinneston

One other wonderful summer season afternoon, heat and sunny with a stiff southwesterly breeze – excellent.  Momentum constructing with the horses, we’ve 40 ridden with a dozen or so cantering and the remainder will step up this week.  Refreshed horses and a refreshed workforce wanting ahead to what is going to hopefully be a productive season.

Personally I’ve discovered the break from coaching reinvigorating and my enthusiasm is larger then ever, of the 52 horses I’ve on my listing for the season 17 have but to run for the yard and I’m loving being on the market with them each morning.  We’re fortunate to have a bunch of doubtless extremely progressive younger horses, cannily acquired I wish to suppose, and hopefully some stars will emerge over the approaching months – some huge footwear to fill with the retirement of Lake View Lad.

Maintaining my head out of racing politics as a lot as attainable for the second however intrigued by the proposals aired by Peter Savill this week which have been a great 12 months within the melting pot.  If these achieve traction then among the outcomes will likely be very controversial however our sport won’t get again on monitor with out taking dangers and incurring some ache; sport should centre round aspiration and we should imagine our product is finally ok to maneuver to a different degree when it comes to public engagement.  If that occurs then everybody will profit, as we’ve seen this summer season we’ve the perfect racing on this planet however structurally forces are at work to hazard that and so they want reversed.  If you’re questioning what on earth I’m speaking about then take heed to Nick Luck’s interview with Peter right here on apple or right here on spotify

After all it’s not simply racing prviding great sporting leisure this summer season – tennis, soccer, cricket, biking, athletics and naturally golf – completely loved the Open at St Andrews and was fortunate sufficient to to be one of many final to play Muirfield yesterday earlier than it closed forward of the Womens Open subsequent week (ps that’s not me driving!)
