|The Whole Crew - It Takes a Village!|
I must admit, I have been taking full advantage of Silva being here. She has schooled Otis on the flat for me the last few days, really tuning him up for the test. He has been looking better and better in every session, and even received a few 'here we go' comments from Captain Mark Phillips.

We then went on to the gallop and blasted the horses up the hill. Mark has been very concerned by the steep hills that we will face in Greenwich, so he has put a massive emphasis on the fitness of all of the horses.
The final stage of the camp was the vet check of the horses early this morning to make sure that they are all in good health after the gallop. All of the horses looked in good shape, so the team will stay the same.
