I would like to introduce Elsie Ruth Fairbrother who was born on 20th May, so far she seems very chilled and is a good girl and long may that continue!! I am feeling a bit bruised and battered but already on countdown to when I can ride again!!
A couple of weeks before I had Elsie Cherise managed to have an unscheduled dismount going round a corner and what ninety times out of a hundred you get up laugh at your mistake and walk away, she landed on her feet and broke her ankle, resulting in an operation and six weeks in plaster. A big thank you must go out to Mum who is now in sole charge with two invalids out of action, we are very lucky to have some really good friends who have been brilliant coming up to help out and ride the horses. Lucy has gone to Izzy Laurence to keep her ticking over as she is entered up eventing in June, I have been friends with Izzy since school and she has a lovely yard where the horses always seem happy and rides them beautifully and the added bonus is she works very closely with Steve Garrod who is competing Lucy for us whilst I am out of action.
