Horseracing - Behind The Scenes - Linda Blackford

This is the first in a new series which is going to highlight the people that put in the hard work, behind the scenes in horseracing. The people and yards that are working 365 days a year that keep the show on the road that rarely get the limelight of the bigger yards. The first in the series Linda Blackford who with partner Mike Vanstone train, breed and trade horses in Rackenford, Devon. Linda was too modest to mention she rode 103 winners, was 5 times South-West area champion and national runner up once.
