I was delayed as my caged stirrup split 4km into the ride and I had to ride 16km without a stirrup until I met my crew. My stirrup leather thankfully was long enough that I could extend it and then balance on a knife edge – it was a nightmare but at least I could continue and Maarhabi (Charlie) was an absolute star!
He started on a pulse of 36bpm and finished on 47bmp – I was flabbergasted as he’s not done too much work due to my ear infection since 1st April – but he’s an ultimate athlete and Golden Horse Shoe and Man V Horse certainly increased his fitness due to the steep hills!
We are both a little stiff today but nothing a massage won’t cure!
I’m collecting my stallion tomorrow from Touchwood stud as he covered a mare AI today and I want him home so I can start backing him!
