What a chilled chap this horse is

It looks like this racehorse trainer had one hell of a day with the Cottesmore

“This is Rob Hornby, who rode out his apprentice jockey Flat claim last week, and who works for trainer Andrew Balding at Park House Stable, Kingsclere. As well as being a great jockey Rob is hunting mad and when offered the opportunity to take 10-year-old Jonno Balding’s pony on the Berks and Bucks drag meet at Kingsclere, he jumped at the chance. He and ‘Ruby’ successfully negotiated some big hedges but as you can see in the video, he wasn’t as successful at putting the pony back in its stable! The lady doubled over with laughter is Anna Lisa Balding” โ€” Charlotte Clarke of Park House Stable


And congratulations to this week’s Tweet of the Week winner
