GUEST STAR RICHARD HUGHES.
Bloodhorse Literate. Professional Horseman, Flat Race Jockey of the Highest Caliber. With some exciting rides, over the next 6 days. One of the key riders in the Richard Hannon Team.
Nick Luck talking to Richard Hughes about several recent nasty Starting Stalls accidents. Richard advises that for safety reasons, four more skilled stalls handlers are needed on all racecourses.
‘Bloodhorse Literate’ Starting Stalls Handlers are needed, in an all out endeavor to aim to prevent such hurt from happening. False and dangerous economy by Racecourses and the British Horseracing Authority, messing with horses and handler/ rider lives on the cheap, is totally unacceptable. A crime.
As Monty Roberts clearly show’s in this Channel 4 documentary film, how, with the wrong handling a horse can so easily loose confidence and panic in fear of what is happening to him/her.
‘BLUSHING ET’S FEAR OF THE STARTING STALLS DOCUMENTARY
‘Let the horses do the talking’
Monty to the rescue of traumatized thoroughbred colt Blushing ET.

This is the true story of a beautiful young colt’s journey back from his fear of the starting stalls. In Monty Roberts own words:
“And that day I got home, and went out there, and started working with this young male mustang and saw him respond to my gestures, it was the most incredible feeling the most unbelieving feeling ...... But the strongest impulse within me was to say to myself who the hell is going to apologize to the species, for all these centuries of misunderstanding, of abuse, of neglect, of doing things the wrong way, its terrible .... who would have thought we could have got this so wrong, because he was telling me you have got this so right. ”

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
The retirement of HARBINGER who suffered a career ending fracture to his fetlock on his near fore leg whilst at exercise on the gallops in Newmarket last Saturday (07.08.2010)
Sir Michael Stoute said “It would be a blow to anyone, he was a great horse and a lovely character with a great mind. The Hardwicke gave you a peek of what he could be and he confirmed it in the King George. If he could have remained at that plateau then we could have had a world champion on our hands.
“You have got to get organised for surgery and remain cool. You must realise there are people suffering more than you are. It’s harder for the girl who looks after him every morning and rides him out, you can’t feel sorry for yourself. It was not a complicated fracture and he has come through the surgery well. The owners (Highclere Thoroughbred Racing) had to make a decision, it’s not my decision to make .”
