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 :)

Black Caviar, Hickstead & Frankel; Hallelujah [02:46]
I lie. this isn't NCIS sorry! :3 finished this instead. Three great names, from separate parts of the world, each horse a champion in their own. I just like the music ok. lyrics here are not important honestly. Just enjoy these three great equine legends and be glad that you lived to see them perform. Horses like this don't come around often, and it's almost all over. So just be glad that it happened because in half a century we will be trying to line horses up next to these. Before you ask, the song is the Safetysuit version and ughhh, LOVE. And may the gods of all things horsey use their almighty powers to have black caviar stride down the famous flemington racecourse one more time!

1987 Strub Stakes [01:09]
Carl Grinstead, one of the owners of Snow Chief, thought he had won. Trainer Mel Stute, who was standing in an aisle in the box-seat area, said he had a perfect position in line with the wire and thought Snow Chief had lost. Eddie Delahoussaye was riding Ferdinand, the horse who charged to the finish line almost stride for stride with Snow Chief. Unlike Grinstead and Stute, Delahoussaye wasn't wearing glasses, and his view was much closer. But Delahoussaye couldn't be sure who had won. That's how close the 40th running of the Charles H. Strub Stakes was on Sunday at Santa Anita, with 58806 fans just as unsure of the outcome as the principals. Finally, the photo-finish camera showed that Snow Chief had beaten Ferdinand by the smallest of noses, and Charlie Whittingham, the trainer of the runner-up, shoved his hands in his pockets, looked at the ground and walked around just outside the winner's circle. "Just one more jump," Whittingham said wistfully. Whittingham has won the Strub twice, but in three of the last four years he's found himself saying the same thing. In 1985, it was Precisionist over Whittingham's Greinton, by a nose just as short as on Sunday; in 1984, Desert Wine got to the wire a neck in front of Load the Cannons, another runner from Whittingham's barn. Stute should have been the last observer to doubt that Snow Chief had won, because all week long he had convinced himself that his colt was going to dominate the $516750 race. Snow Chief, a victim of a bone ...

Long Run Wins William Hill King George VI Chase 26.12.2012 [07:48]
Horse Racing - Long Run wins second King George VI Chase. Long Run held off a spirited challenge from Captain Chris to win the King George VI Chase for the second time in two years at Kempton. The Nicky Henderson trained horse looked set for a comfortable victory, having taken the lead a mile from the finishing post. But a late charge from Richard Johnson aboard Captain Chris saw him jump into the lead at the last hurdle only for Sam Waley-Cohen to produce as last ditch effort to over-haul his rival with two strides to go. "He was so brave," said Waley-Cohen, who also rode Long Run to victory in the delayed 2010 edition of the race and finished runner-up in 2011. "We wanted to take the sting out of everything else and I asked so much, but he was so brave. "This is his fifth year of competing at this level and he means an enormous amount to us. "That was racing at its best to my mind, that's why we do it. I can't put it into words -- it's an honour and a pleasure." Grand Crus finished third almost a mile back. "It was a brave call to go on when he did and it was the right call to make," Henderson said. "It was a battle out there today and not the best ground for any of them. He's young but has been doing everything right. "You would have to say last year was a disappointment but he's been running good races all the time."
