Harptree Hill (GB)
Harptree Hill is here to be broken in and is owned by Bernadette Tucker. Bernadette is the daughter-in-law of Donald Tucker, whom I rode for as a 7lb claimer over jumps. I love seeing the Tucker family on the yard, especially Donald, who turns up with many great stories from long ago. It is great to have support from local owners who live in the village, too. Buster (stable name) is seen here ridden by Harriet Tucker (amateur jockey of Cheltenham Foxhunters fame and the granddaughter of Don). He has been very good to break in, didn't buck when we put the saddle on and has a fantastic attitude. He loved everything we did with him, including loose schooling over poles — even Don said he had never seen a two-year-old jump like it! He will return home to his owners to continue to grow and strengthen.
