Story

Take 2.......after being beaten a  short neck at Fontwell in May last year, I have resumed my 'jockey' career and will be attempting to go one better......and I have stupidly agreed to ride in another race.....but this time at Ascot on 27th April in aid of the British Horseracing Education and Standards Trust!!

I promise it is not as easy as it looks........I have been up at 'stupid o clock' for months....riding out at racing stables in preperation for the big day!! Sometimes I am not sure if it has been terrifying or exhilirating as my 'mounts' have taken charge of the situation....and basically run away with me!!

I am not exactly jockey size.....and with legs more suited to dressage....this riding short malarchy is painful!!

Please do support BHEST which is a trust designed to deliver stimulating and exciting eductional activities in an open air, healthy environment that support and enhance children and young people's studies.
