(Sunny, dressed to kill!)
Friday dawned, and we travelled to see an old friend. Angela, runs a horse friendly farm, and does a wicked B&B! We had booked to stay for a few days.
Myself, Sheena Katy and another Angela! I brought along my young horse Sunny, a 4 year old mare, just out of finishing school! We had a few good rides planned, and one of those was along the old Roman road known as The Street.
Here they are, horse watching!
Dunno who this guy is? They view down the Bowmont Valley is quite something.
High on the Roman road, at around 1500 feet. Wonderful ride, about 16 miles, just the thing! Sunny behaved impeccably, I was very impressed.
This is a long shot of Hownam Hill Fort, an Iron Age fort.
The place is riddled with history.
Here is Angela and her Cob, “Bhindy”, interestingly this pony was a bit of a nightmare, but now after retraining she is a dream horse.
Katy and Sheena, in the August sun.
Here she is, an Appaloosa cross Irish draft, so calm and easy.
