What a great day! A fantastic ride through the Galloway Forest Park. Twenty miles or so, of uninterrupted riding.
The day started fine, and with sunshine, just the type of weather to buck the spirits of any rider! It was warm without being hot, and the horses loved it. Sheena, myself and Katy, left the parking area a little after 11am. Not a soul did we see for the first 8 miles! Then when we did it was at the remote farm of Upper Gairloch.
So we rode from Mossdale, to Clatteringshawes Loch.
Then we crossed the river to the other side and rode the high level route back! Simple.
Of course there was the ubiquitous water crossing!
And time for a drink! Gracie and Tiny fought for the same bit of river to drink from?? Whats that about! There was acres of water, and they want the same bit!
Finally a pit stop, before the last run home. (More to stretch these old legs!)
“Who`s that with the camera Dad?” The run home was easy and fast, a cup of tea all around and feed for the horses, load up and get home for a beer!
