Busy morning at Barbury
This morning was a busy one, 35 horses schooled, 19 out on the main ground and 16 in the outdoor school. We managed to school a few of the entered horses on the grass due to sufficient rain in the last few days which is always a plus. The majority of the string jumping in the school were having there first session of the season and were a pleasure to watch.
Oceane ran a pleasing race at Newbury finishing third. It was his first start for just over two months so there should be some improvement from having this run under his belt.
Precision Five made her debut over hurdles on Friday at Newton Abbot finishing third. It was a pleasing start and will benefit greatly from the experience.
Hardington (pictured being saddled up) made his debut at Newbury on Saturday and although he broke slowly he will be a lot sharper for the run mentally and physically.
Paddys Runner was our only runner on Sunday at Plumpton. This was his second run over hurdles, he was a little green in front, jumped well and won comfortably. This will be a great confidence boost for him and should progress from this.
