Racing in the New Forest Point to Point. Peter Gregory

Hi I’m Peter Gregory, I’m 14 years old and I live in the New Forest.

I competed in the New Forest Point to Point on Boxing Day, Boys Ride Too wrote a Facebook post about it and because so many of you were interested I’ve been asked to write a blog about my race this year on Byzan.

The New Forest Boxing Day Point to Point race 2021 was Damp, Muddy and Fast!

I moved from Hertfordshire to the New Forest just before lockdown and so this was the first year I had friends racing with me. It was nice to see people I knew at the meeting point where we were all unloading our ponies and getting ready. We then hacked to the secret start points in big groups with the stewards.
