Grand National Fences To Be Made Safer. [02:11]
Fences at this year's Grand National are being made safer in the biggest change in the history of the race. They are among a number of measures aimed at dealing with accusations of animal cruelty after eight horses died in the last decade. Last year the joint favourite and Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Synchronised had to be put down after falling at fence six of the Grand National - the infamous Becher's Brook - and continuing riderless until suffering leg fractures. The death, along with that of outsider According to Pete, who was brought down at the same fence on the second circuit, led to calls from animal welfare groups for the Grand National to be banned. The new fences are still covered in spruce but wooden posts have been replaced by a softer material known as "plastic birch". Aintree racecourse manager Andrew Tulloch described the birch as "horse friendly", telling Sky News "safety at Aintree is always our top priority for riders and horses and it's something we do not stand still on". He said the changes should make the Grand National safer but not any easier, insisting the fences will remain the same height. "The outward appearance of these fences will remain the same. "The big change here is that traditionally where they had a timber frame to them that timber frame has been replaced by a plastic, more forgiving, birch and on top of that birch there's a minimum of fourteen, maybe even sixteen inches of spruce and the spruce is what the horses can knock off," he ...

2013 So Farrrrrr [03:46]
2012 ended with me in hospital with horrible abdominal pains and I then had exams, leading to a long break from riding. This was ended until the snow came because snow is mean to people. But today we went out competing again - yay! And George is back to his old self (we got 9 strides down a 12 horse stride related distance). Went clear in the showjumping phase, but lost my stirrup over fence 3, leading to him swerving out in front of one of the XC fences, so I fell off and he trod on me. i don't blame him though and he was jumping impeccably so I shan't complain, he felt absolutely amazing :) Harvey has been out 3 times this week and I think we've cracked how to travel him and keep him happy. The schooling clip you see is the first ride back after the snow and he was verrrrry fresh! He's coming along amazingly now, and I did have some footage of the last couple of weeks but my SD card was lost at my friend's party. he's been doing simple changes and we just need to get him going FORWARD. This feels strange as usually I'm on a time bomb pony who aspires to be a rocket. But I have clear aims for them both this year and I think they're all within reach, just have to get out there and do it now! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH :)
