Jack Wilmot, who works for us, had his debut point to point ride at Charing on 5 December, riding his own horse, Ego des Mottes. As there was no novice riders’ race on the card, they ran in the mens’ open against some of the top point to point riders in the country and some of the top horses. Jack rode an excellent race and finished fifth, just outside the placings while several others failed to complete. Jack and Ego are nearest the camera in this great photograph. It is a day that Jack will remember for ever! There was a full turn-out from the yard to cheer Jack on with his parents and, despite the weather being extremely wet and very cold, we all had a brilliant day – well done Jack and Ego!
