I'm a sucker for a challenge

Posted on 3rd March 2017

So yeah I've won a couple of gold medals sailing but now I have a new challenge. I've agreed to train to become a jockey. My first race is on the 3rd August 2017 and I'm absolutely bricking it!

I guess when someone is normally asked if they would like to become a jockey they would usually have some sort of competence in actually riding a horse. When I was asked I'd NEVER ridden a horse, although my Dad did say I did once but I can't remember it so it doesn't really count.

My first (possibly last) race is The Magnolia Cup at Glorious Goodwood. It's an all lady affair which takes place, rather fittingly, on Ladies Day. I usually like to hang around in a frock on that day looking fabulous darling! Not this year. I'll be the one wearing silks and a silly hat.

It's for charity so I'll be sharing my link to my Just Giving soon so... until then watch my progress so far.

Thanks for reading.
