Hunt Meet At Tyre Hill Racing Stables

Posted on 30th November 2017


Earlier this week, David & the team at David Dennis Racing were honoured to host a meet for one of our local hunts the Croome & West Warwickshire Foxhounds.

It was a fabulous morning & the weather was glorious. We had a great turnout of both mounted & foot followers & we were well supported by some of our local owners who joined us too. As well as regular followers of the local hunt, we also supplied some visitors for the day in the form of some of the current horses in training as well as some former stablemates & David’s daughter Tilly on her pony ‘Cracker’.  All horses & riders had a lovely few hours out following hounds before all returning in one piece later that afternoon.

It was great to see some horses who have been running well of late out enjoying themselves with the likes of Norse Light (3rd just two days previous at Exeter), Final Nudge (2nd in the Badger Ales Trophy at Wincanton earlier in the month) & Cyclop (2nd in the Southern National at Fontwell just over a week before) as well as Innisfree Lad & Seven Kingdoms & they all behaved very well indeed.

Even a couple of old faces from David Dennis Racing made an appearance with Godsmejudge (a previous Scottish National winner) & Tyre Hill (now owned by member of staff Phoebe Baylis) & it was fantastic to see these horses out doing another job which they enjoy so much following their racing careers.

Hunting is not only a fantastic education for young horses but also acts as a perfect tonic for those horses who have been in training for some time as it can certainly give them a new lease of life & we were delighted to be able to host & join the C&WW for a wonderful morning.
