Ascot Family Day - Sophie's first visit to the races

Ascot Family Day - Sophie's first visit to the races

I have always loved horses, right from being small I was around them. I got my first pony when I was 7 and it appears that my love for all things equine has been passed along to my daughter too! She has no fear and loves nothing more than giving her friend Hopper (who happens to be a 17hh ex racehorse!) a big cuddle. She loves to sit on him and will shout him to come to her across the field, so going to Ascot Family Day was a big treat for her!

Michael and I have often visited our local racecourse pre-Sophie, which is relatively small, so I certainly wasn’t expecting anything as huge or as grand as Ascot! I have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed by the sheer size of it, it really is amazing and a must visit for any racing fan!
