Okay cue the proud mum about to burst with pride news but I had to share with you all. So I'm hoping Julia, Queen of all desks and WOYWW leader won't mind if I'm not really desk sharing as this is too exciting. Well the letter is on my desk so it counts, right?!!
Those of you who know me in person or online will know that my son, Keagan, has a dream. He wants to work in Racing and wants to be a National Hunt Jockey. Like A P McCoy. It's all he's ever wanted to do. So he's had lessons, can ride anything and works hard over the stables, but to get into racing you have to complete the right course. There are a few options but Keagan wanted to apply to the best college in UK/Europe first. So last week we went up to Newmarket. Home of The British Racing College where he completed a fitness test, aptitude test and interview. A nervous process for all concerned I can tell you.
The college is outstanding. The facilities are amazing. We were in awe of the place to be honest.
Anyway we've waited. 7 days they said. So today the letter arrived. It was during his lunch break so I took the letter to him where Keagan opened it with me and one of his friends and I'm over the moon to say they have offered Keagan a place!!
This is a huge step towards him following his dream. I'm so proud I'm fit to burst I can tell you!
Here he is sat on Rocky, an ex-racehorse. Won't be long and he will be riding race horses every day!
Anyway that's me, hope you don't mind the proud mum thing. Had to be done!!
Take care Zo xx
