Northern Flame (centre)
Routine Monday with all the horses working on the all-weather; entries made for Kelso on Saturday (Almost Blue, Twelve Paces, Isla Patriot, Commercial Express, Northern Flame) and Alnwick on Sunday (Skipping Chapel, Almost Blue, Commercial Express).  Local eventer in to give dressage to Daasij & Forcefield this afternoon, I find the horses we have that have learnt their trade on the flat struggle to use themselves properly and would like to help them a bit. Fallout from yesterday not too bad, apparently the course doctor arrived to witness the ambulance being towed into the middle of the course, realising it would therefore have to be towed off with a stricken rider he said racing couldn't go ahead, fair enough, but if someone had anticipated this it would have saved us all a lot of time and money.
