There's lots for kids to do at Andoversford, starting with the racing.

Prefacing our Point-to-Point races, we're introducing up to three pony races for children aged 9-16. This is a great opportunity for children of all ages to be inspired by their contemporaries already learning how to become jockeys. The leading lights among pony racing jockeys have subsequently made careers in the real thing, like champion Flat apprentice of 2015 Tom Marquand. 

For younger children, there's a bouncy castle, Punch & Judy thanks to Rendcomb College, and dog agility classes all day to entertain. Plenty of opportunities here to test your own dog too. 

There's also a parade of hounds during the afternoon, a great opportunity to come and see the Cotswold Foxhounds, who are all very friendly!

Together with rider Ben Jones, they took the first two races with Pic Roc and Henry's Friend before narrowly missing out in the 2m3f handicap hurdle.

Whilst large swathes of the country have been under water during this wettest of winters, one stable has been going the extra yard to find winners, and it hails from deepest Cotswold country.  Although fixtures in the West Mercian area have yet to take place (Knightwick's rearranged February fixture from November fell prey to the Teme bursting its banks last week), there's been action in the...

Eagle-eyed followers of Point-to-Point racing may have identified a key clue in pursuit of the winner of the St James's Place Foxhunter at the Cheltenham Festival in the gloaming of an otherwise unremarkable day at Wetherby last week.  Hunter chases no longer fill the way they used to and often produce small fields where the more companionable atmosphere of the Point-to-Point scene draws mor...
