WESTERN RYDER Wins Over Fences

 In Latest News



WESTERN RYDER got his head in front over fences for the first time last week after finishing on the podium on his first two attempts. He has been a horse with a lot of talent in his early career, winning bumpers, hurdles and running in some big races. He has stepped up to the bigger obstacles well in his training and ran a good race to win at Ludlow last Monday. He was piloted by Daryl Jacob who tracked the leaders until taking the mantel two out.  WESTERN RYDER jumped brilliantly and it was a striking performance from the capable racehorse. Unfortunately, we will have to wait a while until we see him on a track again as he suffered a set back that takes him out for the rest of the season. He will however be back next season to start where he left off and hopefully continue his career as a Chaser.
