A great day out yesterday at our local Point-to-Point with Bev and David. The meet was originally scheduled for 25th Nov but due to bad weather, was postponed until the 9th February. After the races, a few drinks in the Legion followed by the customary BBQ at David’s house. A day full of fun and how much nicer and pleasant it was this year compared to the last race meeting we went to, where a certain ‘guest’ was more interested in her mobile phone instead of enjoying the company which she was in.

This horse was my only success at the bookies, coming in at 11/4, and seen here just as he jumped the last fence before galloping off to the finishing post.

    They managed to go ahead then, great shot Richard xx

  • Thank you Irene. Yes, it was a good day but left before the last race finished to avoid getting bogged down on the way to the exit. The BBQ went ahead also and for once, the weather was ok for us, although it was grey all day. Hope you are ok. xx
