Alex is currently en route to China for the funeral of his grandfather (pictured with Alex) and sadly won’t be writing a blog this week.

He has had to withdraw his horses from the Festival of British Eventing, but will be flying back on Sunday morning and will be available at Gatcombe around midday to talk about his Olympic experiences and his horses. He would love to get some feedback on his Horse & Hound blog. Look out for him at his sponsor’s stand, Equine Products UK.

Alex will be restarting his diary next week.
