Barik and I are now continuing our preparation for the Games as planned in case we should be called upon at the last minute. Barik has a varied training schedule from schooling to keep him supple, canter training, hill training and interval training on the gallops. But it is not just Barik who has a training plan, I have a rigorous plan to keep me in peak performance as set out by Mike Jones, the team Human Physio.
Barik is also being sponsored with fortnightly Equine Sports Massage treatments by Rachel Wiliams. Rachel has been treating Barik for the past year pre/post rides so it is great to have her continued support to ease out any muscle tension or spasms. For further details about Rachel please visit her website at
The countdown is definitely on with only 25 days until the Endurance event of the games.
