    S4E2 - Where there’s a Will, there’s a way

    William Buick makes for a fascinating star guest in an in-depth and candid interview. He talks about his life as a Godolphin jockey, including reminiscing about his 2018 Derby victory on Masar. He reflects on the formidable alliance he has with trainer Charlie Appleby and also look back fondly on his time as stable jockey to John Gosden. And of course, we couldn’t sit down with William and not talk to him about all things Native Trail and Coroebus!
    Throughout, Will gave us a series of thoughtful and really interesting answers. We loved our chat with him and hope you enjoy listening to him as much as we did.
    Also in the episode, George discusses his flying start to the 2022 season and Charlie reveals that, all going well, he will have a Derby runner in the shape of Grand Alliance.
    Thanks as always to our friends Fitzdares, who not only sponsor our podcast but also the Fitzdares Thirsk Hunt Cup.

    S4E5 - An evening with George and Charlie at the King’s Head

    We return to our ‘home stadium’ the King’s Head in Dullingham for the first time in a long time! To mark the occasion we invited our OfftheBridle Podcast syndicate members, our podcast partners Fitzdares and other friends and associates to enjoy a drink or two, a bite to eat and some lively chat.
    We find out more about George and Charlie’s lives, as well as unveil further details about our latest Podcast syndicate horses for 2022. Oh, and for those who never heard it before, Charlie regales us once more with the story of his wedding day which sounds like it could’ve come from the scripts of classic comedy caper Four Weddings and a Funeral.
    Merry Christmas, all…
