A day of firsts

Today we welcomed Vicky Brooks to our team, Vicky is an accomplished rider having grown up backing and breaking horses with her mother in Cumbria and enjoys hunting and eventing. This year she competed at Horse of the Year Show finishing fourth in her class. Vicky has already demonstrated a lovely kind way with horses and an exceptional seat, she is sure to be a valuable member of the team.

We also rode the Pivotal colt out of Anse Victorin for the first time and a collection of clips of the backing process from when he first arrived, after being prepared for the yearling sales by Highclere Stud, until today can be viewed below or on his page. Very soon he will be enjoying hacks around the estate before his first trip up the gallops.
