I called my kennel 'Cleeve Hill' because it was the hill above my house in the UK and its where I spent many hours riding and training racehorses. It is a hill that cover hundreds maybe thousands of acres and is completely wild . The local farmers put sheep and cattle up there in the summer months. In winter it must be the coldest place on earth as if I had a cold it would get blown away.In the bygone days 'Cheltenham races' were held on the topper most part of the hill. Now they are held in the valley below at Prestbury Park' it is the best racecourse in Britain for ' National Hunt Racing' and the 'Gold Cup' and 'Champion Hurdle are held here every year in March.
I moved to Belgium in 1981 to work in racing and I stayed. 25 years ago. A lifetime.
