[ i ] refuse to [ giveup ] [01:37]
[READ DESCRIPTION] Can't sleep, started this at 11:00pm and finished around 3:30am. Now I'm probably going to spend a good 30 minutes writing a somewhat meaningful description. Well... Where to start... I had a pretty good breakdown before I started making this video. I thought about... how I'm poor... we can't afford much... one lesson a week isn't helping me enough... so many people think I'm a horrible rider... so many people put me down... I have ten times more bad days than good... I fear I'll never be a good rider... I'll never amount to anything... ect. Constantly people are putting my down. They say I can't ride. I'll never be good no matter what. Because I'm poor I'm nothing. I'm really starting to believe them. More than anything in life I just want to ride. I wish I could ride everyday, every second of my life. Or at least just be with horses... and learning... Even though this video is only a minute and a half long. I could spend an endless amount of time expressing how I feel. But, I'll never give up on what's important to me. Never. I'll just have to work ten times harder than everyone else around me. I'll work for it. No matter how long it takes. I know I'll get there... someday. Well I think I'm done with this stupid description. I hate writing descriptions... Thanks for reading, ~Ashley

Race with three Greys at Bonvilston proves popular with first time racegoers! [02:36]
One of the greys, Stoneriggs Merc, wins the race at 16/1 which was nice for several families I heard who placed small bets on it! One had not been racing since Desert Orchid as they had been abroad; but had clearly enthused their children with tales of the great grey! But watch the race through to the end. The staying on odds on favourite Kisha King is pressing him after the last; so Joseph Williams gives him a slap with the whip just to keep him going to the line. Now a small minority of people- often who have little interest in Racing or knowledge of horses worry about the whip. In fact; if you watch this video the horse comes right over to my camera and you can hear the whip and see the action close up. This should alleviate any worries - as you can see there is no way that the air cushioned whip has or can hurt or damage the horse in any way. So some say 'so why have it?' Well because horses are herd animals and use their teeth to communicate. A little nip administered by one horse will move the other horse on; or out of the way. Similarly the jockey uses the whip to keep a horse straight or keep it going or move him out of danger. Thus the stimulus of that tap of the whip has the same effect - the horse knows to keep going! As you can see from the video close up; the whip causes no problems for the horse who has a thick hair coat; but it understands to keep going. After all; while the horse clearly enjoys running; he does not know where the line is. You can see also ...

Monet's Garden ||:GET WELL SOON:|| [02:03]
Please read if you can :) Just a really rubbish tribute to a wonderful horse. Monet's Garden, who turned 13 on New Year's day is one of my favourite horses due to his seemingly unending ability to stay at the top, but more than that because of his obvious love for what he does. This gallant old grey has won 17 from 32 starts in his career, winning the Old Roan Chase 3 times, the Ascot Chase twice along with a Melling Chase, Peterborough chase and a Liverpool Hurdle. His great athletic ability, combined with his flamboyant front running style and stunning grey coat endeared him to many people. Unfortunately, just a week or so after winning his third Old Roan Chase, Monet's Garden contracted a foot infection which spread to his hoof. He has since been retired and is critically ill, fighting for his life. We can only hope that he pulls through, and can have the long and happy retirement he deserves :) Anyways, this video was just my way of expressing how much he meant to me personally, after watching him race many times. His best days came at Aintree and Ascot-Aintree being where he won his 3 Old Roan Chases. I think it's time they erected a statue of him there, he deserves it! So yeah, I don't care if zero people read this or watch it, but fingers crossed Monet's Garden can make it. Get well soon old boy!
