“Oh, the places you’ll go”

As some of you will already know Iris and I are planning more adventures, this time a ride along the Pennine Bridleway to raise funds for our Aquaponics Project. The plan is to explore 205 miles of the Pennines’ ancient packhorse routes, drovers roads and newly created bridleways in sections over this year.

A challenge which needs a great deal of preparation physically, testing out kit, getting the horse fit, solving potential problems….so we have made a start over the past 3 weeks with walks and many short rides. Now we are extending those rides up to 2 hours and including stops, practice getting on and off without mounting blocks, handling issues when they arise by ourselves and most of all having tons of fun mini-adventures.

    Hi, love keeping up with you guys. I know you are happy that Iris is loving horses as you do. She is happy too. Also nice to see your little goat, and to catch a glimpse of Thula.
    Think of you, wish I were in England now that Spring is almost here. Haven’t been back for 6 years and I miss it so…….
    Best and warmest of wishes,
