From when you see them stumbling to their feet in the minutes after their birth and cavorting with mum to the day you get a letter through the post, 7 years later, telling you that your little filly Fallulah has qualified to compete on the world stage with the best of the best. Proud dad moment!
As a three and four year old Fallulah was small and lacked strength so we gave her the time she needed to come into her own. Her first event was in the July of her 5th year. On the yard she lived in the shadow of Hartpury Sky is the Limit, who was selected with me for the Olympic Equine Pathway, but that programme also gave her some useful opportunities to shine.
