At the moment we loan this lovely horse, Summer, from our friend Natasha. She is a 17 year old thoroughbred mare, her racing name was Lunch In Paris. In 1999 she had 5 starts over hurdles and her best finish was 9/15 at Worcester, after which she was understandably retired.
We have had Summer for a year now and it's been a fab year..with only a few glitches, like a bad foot.
But I think it may be time for us to buy someone of our very own.
Last Thursday we went down to Essex to see a lovely 6 yr old Irish Sport Horse, a completely different proposition. Going to see him again next week. And trying another Irish horse this afternoon.
But for what may be our swan song, Summer and me are taking part in a charity ride for Breast Cancer Research on 21 August, we will be decked out in everything pink and I will post the pictures later.
