This was valuable business he learnt in the saddle when he used to ride horses as a youngster, Jenkins told FoodManufacture.co.uk in this exclusive video.
“Kick on. When I was younger I used to ride horses quite a bit and I always found if you slowed as you came into a fence you ended up in the bottom of the ditch,” he said.
‘I’ll say: kick on’
