Yesterday, l had to make the heartbreaking decision to withdraw Grand Manoeuvre from Badminton ?? Sadly he slipped over on the concrete 5 mins before trot up on Wednesday and was just feeling a bit sore yesterday morning…. he’s too good and means too much to all of us to risk him not being 110% ?
I’m totally gutted for all my team who put so much work in for me .. especially devastated for zanie King (groom) & Diana Chappell (owner) ?
We drove home from Badminton this afternoon ? feeling totally deflated and heartbroken ? … would like to wish all the luck in the world to everyone there!
