Jockey Jan supports Lucy at the Northern Racing College in Doncaster

My Day at the Northern Racing College in Doncaster by Lucy Pittendrigh 

Picture of Lucy was taken at Fife Foxhounds where she was competing in the pony races April 2015.

I was so lucky to be awarded a day at the NRC by the Jockey Jan Memorial Fund for my dedication to pony racing, finally Wednesday 16th October arrived, we had an early start leaving home at 6.30.

We arrived at the NRC and the horses were out already I was eager to see the one Sarah Beattie had told me I would ride, so many horses, which one was it? The rides were split into how long the students had been there, each ride went out for a trot around the 6 furlong enclosed gallop then followed by a canter, groups matched by Alison and followed by Malc in the car with a walky talky to each rider.

When it was my turn I was given a leg up on Vehari he had raced on the flat and over jumps. We trotted out 3 of us always getting instructions from Malc, finally I was to go back out to gallop I had a lead horse a lovely grey and me on Vehari, mum and my sister Louise got in the car to follow and to take videos it was amazing here I was on the gallops riding a racehorse everything I so want to do.

It was over so quickly we then took the horses back to the stables where I was able to un tack, brush and put rugs on filling hay nets and making sure the horses were ok.

A quick drink and then I got to meet Kevin Darley, a champion flat race jockey, who took us to the simulator room, he was going to video me riding a finish and then go through what points could be improved, I learnt so much from Kevin and watching myself back on the screen. Jockeys need to be so fit!!!

I left wishing my next pony race were next week and not January 2014. I cannot wait to put everything I have learnt into practise.

Thank you so much to the JJMF, Margaret Wilson, Jane Clark, Sarah Beattie and my amazing racing ponies Rascal and Hazel.  LUCY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
JOCKEY JAN MEMORIAL PLACES

 

 

Rescobie Church Garden.

 

The Rev. Brian Ramsay asked if we would like a bench to remember Jan. We thought it would go in the grave yard.

Brian said we could put it where it is, but he didn't know what to do with the rest of the area.

I said leave it to me.          So the pictures tell the story.

001

I was asked by a friend of Jan’s, she said

“I have been all round the crematorium Margaret and I don’t see a place to leave flowers for Jan”.

I had never thought of this so it made the memorial garden much more needed than ever. 

002

The garden gave me something to do for Jan and her friends and kept me busy.

Anyone could help with plants and bulbs.

005 001

The area was surrounded by a lovely natural stone dyke which had been rebuilt which sets of the garden.

I asked if he could do something. I wanted something slightly horsy but remembering it was for the church.

SARAHS WEDDING 055

Before Xmas 2009 I received a call from Jan’s Boss David Barron, he told me about a sweepy

that the yard did every year at which horses would do best in the year.

David said guess who has won, yes it was Jan.

We discussed what to do with the money and a weather vane was what we decided. Maunby Front Fert 005

I think it turned out really well as Jan stands watch and hopefully brings the yard luck for many years to come.

It was where she wanted to be.

"Jan said a lot of good jockey's came out of this yard one called Alex Greaves who I want to be like."

  JAN'S 21ST BIRTHDAY

 1ST OF MAY 2011

 Couldn’t let Jan’s 21st pass.  Things happened and this looked after everything.

We were putting a straw shed up and we had to take some trees down that would have fallen down. The wood cutter

found a tree once it was down with J K W on it, we had forgotten that years ago Drew helped Jan do this so hence the gate.

We had to replace trees so this was what I did my own way with a little help from Jan.

We used the picture of the weather vane at Maunby Yard for the gate to bring her home.

lovely red autumn colours that I noticed in a local garden centre so I told her about It, but she came back with a Skimmia in stead.

Days after I was on my road to Inverkeilor and pulled into the local garden centre there and found the shrub

I had been looking for in the clearance part. When I was paying for everything the lady had turned the pot round

  the label was showing Berberis Mystery Fire.

This gate has horses upside, pet lambs, Jan befriended some geese one year and they have come back every year after that.

Jan went to pony club and had a great time at camp when it was at Brechin one year.

I got a call to come and see her on Tina her Highland mare. We went along I was a bit embarrassed at the Highland,

some of the competitors didn’t like it ether to say the least specially when Jan had clear rounds and came 2nd in the jump of.

Jan didn’t have me embarrassed. Jan showed at that time didn’t matter what she was on she gave it her best.

Jan had taught Tina from scratch herself and beat lots of lovely looking horses and more experienced riders that day.  

AUGUSTFIFT12 088

  Jan had great fun at different locations at cross country.

Pet rabbits cats hens anything she could catch to sit on her knee, the foxes had got our hen’s, well their was one left.

Jan had it doing anything, most memorable sledging with hen on her knee.

This area was Jan’s sand pit, so bucket and spade, the rail was where she would tie her pony’s up.

AUGUSTFIFT12 082

 Here’s the swing this used to be the bottom of garden with a stonewall running across.
We removed some of the stone and I got Drew to get a stone strainer from some of our other dykes to finish the end of wall.

 We got another end and erected it to make it like a cross-country jump.

 The morning the dyker was coming to put it all together it was very rhyme (frosty) and I went to look at the ends.

I couldn’t believe what I was seeing engraved on the stone was two stick pictures of a mum and daughter holding hands.

The dyker was stunned too, I said to him you had better not drop it as Jan is watching us.
