Today we went with our friends, Hamish and Rebecca, to visit Rebecca's horse. "Forrester' lives in Ohariu Valley.
Cait was nervous, Elliot was excited (his first time on a horse) and I was rapt to be back in the saddle. It's 20 years since I last rode a horse. This was only a little ride around the arena and I felt like a total beginner but it was cool. Caitlin got more confident and both kids were able to have a go off the lead. Forrester is a very large but very calm horse and it was a real treat.
Elliot was very proud to report that "I steered by myself!"
