gmt - won't be there this year due to ankle problem. Did do it last year, it was very wet, muddy and even flooded in places (something makes me think it will be same tomorrow), however I thought it was great fun. Hace a good time.
Bad luck Baza. I too have a sprianed ankle, did it at Rouken Glen last Thursday, OK I actually think I did something a couple of weeks ago, thought it was sorted only to painfully discover that it wasn't.
Would like to be fit for GSR, though as I have been struggling recently anyway not sure that I want to push myself t get fit again.
Having spent my early years in n area heavily populated with race horses and having seen how easily they can be spooked, even if there is nothing obvious there to spook them, I always think it is best to give horses as wide a berth as possible and make your presence known to the riders, especially if approaching from behind. Though not in a way to scare the animals of course.
