Analysis

David Simcock: "I'm absolutely delighted. He has a lot of jobs in life, including (teaching other horses) in the stalls and he's a regular lead horse. He doesn't win very often, which is probably partly down to me, so I couldn't be more chuffed. He does what he wants, the kids ride him all the time and he's just a very sweet horse."
