Quick Trip Out!

Cant believe its been so long since I went to the Northumbria National Park! Two whole years. Does`nt time fly, so horses loaded, gear packed, off we went! Had a great couple of days, some good weather, and good food.

“Its a long way back Dad!” Gracie wasnt convinced! Here we are looking back to the start of the Roman Road, Clennell Street.

Signpost for various places, our route home is immediately behind the sign, just seven miles to go!

Rest, grass and a big deep breathe before heading home.

  2. Thanks Shirley it is, and yes my riding partner, saw the light a few years ago. She now has a happy pony.

  3. Looks like a good ride. and time sure does fly! Good to get out there again

    1. Thanks Crystal, really good place.

  4. Finally catching up! Looks lovely and does look like two happy horses. Where did you get your bosal?

    1. Hi Denise, got it from USA, its only an 8 strand with 12 on the nose, sort of a training Bosal.

  5. I can't believe you began posting again! It is not coming into my feed for some reason... so I will look for you! So good to see pictures of Gracie again!
