The incident had an interesting post script just this week :
I was chatting to my trainer's wife this week and she mentioned that she, like me, thought she had contracted the virus or something uncannily similar earlier in the year. It was around about the same period as I recall having become very ill with what I thought was seasonal flu but which I later began to suspect might have been Covid19.
As a side line the yard runs a very successful small business catering to tourists wishing to do out rides on Noordhoek beach. In January they took a booking from a group of Chinese visitors. It was only weeks later that she recalled that two of the riders coughed and spluttered intermittently throughout the entire afternoon.
I visited the yard during that period and spent a good time socialising with my trainer and his wife after viewing my horse.
The sequenece of events and my subsequent illness makes a credible case for how I might have contracted Covid or something remarkably similar.
