Seeing the Countryside on Horseback

One of the most beautiful ways I’ve explored the country side here is by horseback. I hadn’t been on a horse since I was a child so I was a little nervous.

One of our good friends offers horseriding lessons here and I decided to go on a sunset horseride with her. It was amazing and I saw views I don’t think I’d ever see by foot, and when the sun started to go down the shadows and the sky was so beautiful.

On this ride was myself and another horse loving friend, and also our neighbour, the 3 of use rode until sunset, through the forest trails and mountains. We spent 2 hours chatting, admiring the views and enjoying our down time at the end of a long day.

Every time we have friends visit we always book another ride so they can experience it too. The horses are so gentle, very calm and you instantly feel relaxed by their temperment.

Erika gives a great explanation of how to control the horse and walks with you the whole time. Everbody who has booked this experience has nothing but good things to say about it. Even those, like me, who have never really been on a horse before.

For Elvis birthday last year in May Erika gave Elvis a voucher for a horse ride. Until now we hadn’t got round to using it, so on Sunday morning we arranged a horse ride for Elvis.

We met Erika at a friends house, Elvis got his helmet on, a little rundown of what to do and off he went with us walking alongside and Erika leading Mandala the horse.

We walked for about half an hour around tracks that we’d never explored before and the place was beautiful. Loads of hidden farms with beautful farm buildings, meadow like terrain with white and yellow flowers covering the ground. The sun was shining and it was a really warm morning.

As I have been working almost 6 days a week lately it was the perfect way to spend my Sunday morning and have some much needed family time that I’d been craving.

This is definitely one to add to your bucket list for your trip.
