A day at the races

With the hecticness of the festive period I haven’t had much time to spend on updating my blog posts and this post is well overdue, so firstly my apologies for the delay!

On Saturday 19th December we headed over to Ascot Racecourse for their Christmas racing weekend. The last time I went to watch horse racing I must have been around 7 years old, all I can remember is loud crowds and seeing a herd of horses thundering past every so often. So needless to say I was pretty excited.

The day did not disappoint. I absolutely loved seeing the horses both racing and being paraded around in the winners enclosure. Ascot is a beautiful racecourse and with the weather being so mild it was great to be able to spend the whole day outside. There were 6 races and between the 6 of us we all had a winning horse. We had so much fun and as the day went on it did get really busy, the atmosphere and cheering was electrifying. I think we may be going back to Ascot in the near future!
