, Bryony Frost: The new season is just around the corner – so I’m squeezing in some family time while I can

WHO said a jockeys’ life is glamorous?

When I’ve not been up at the crack of dawn riding out I’ve been traipsing around the shops trying to find some food that my dog Merlin will actually eat!

Top jockey Bryony Frost is back with her exclusive Sun Racing column

He’s a whippet and he has a mind of his own. He is great fun to be around and is a lovely dog, but he has become an incredibly fussy eater.

The food that he used to love is apparently not good enough anymore and it’s been a battle trying to get him to play ball!

I finally discovered that he likes having his new biscuits mixed with a bit of milk – but if anyone has any tips on how to get fussy dogs to eat then please let me know.

I got some positive news from Dr Jerry Hill and the medical team at the BHA this week as I get ready to make my return from injury.

I’ve been placed on the ‘amber’ medical list, which means you can be booked for rides but have to be cleared by a doctor at the track before being given the all-clear.

It would be incredible to return with a bang – every jockey wants a winner on their first ride back after a lay-off.

I don’t have a specific date in mind, but my aim is to come back on a horse that will look after me and who has a good chance. 

Things have been ticking over nicely at Ditcheat as we continue to build up to the jumps season proper in a few weeks.

But I managed to have a lovely weekend back home in Devon with my family, as my brother Hadden and his lovely wife Bethany were over from America on their honeymoon.

We had a bit of a party with a hog roast and some music and it was great to see some relatives and friends I haven’t seen for a while.

On Sunday we all went out for a ride on Dartmoor and we stopped off at the village pub on the way back for a pint of cider. 

A lot of my family hadn’t had a chance to meet my lad Black Corton yet, so it was great to show him off.

The nights are starting to draw in and there is a chill in the air in the mornings – the proper racing is just around the corner!

Keep kicking!
