an absolute high

3 hours in the saddle

riding a horse described as a bit green

through some of the most beautiful country in the world - clean roundstone rivers, bird laden bush

reassuring my horsemad daughter who was riding in an unfenced area for the first time in her life ... and got scared

and then found her courage

with a canter home along the beach

i was ecstatic - can you tell?

and i felt a part of me fill up that had been empty for a long, long while....


  1. Hooray for you dear daughter!!!

    How's yer bum???

  2. bum healed thanks honey! (i literally wore a hole in it!)

  3. What a lovely thing to do! I'm glad your daughter found her courage and that you enjoyed it too!x
