Dougie was out with me today in sweltering (for Scotland) heat, it’s going to be a whole lot different in January in the far north of Scotland!
The horses did their best to give encouragement!
The Pentlands midweek, about as far removed from mid winter as possible
And finally, Rebus enjoying a paddle in the River Tweed, only a paddle mind you, he’s not brave enough to try anything more daring!
Dougie told me through the week that he was considering entering the Strathpuffer 24 hour race solo category and true to his word he sent text later that night to confirm, in a moment of maybe misplaced loyalty I’ve offered to be his pit crew, the training for the rider and the backroom staff starts now!
