Last week i was offered a chance to go horse riding by a friend. now i have no aversion to riding, a lot of my friends are very horsey but its just not something i have ever really been into.

we used to do little hacks, led by others when i was younger on holiday but that was always a once a year kind of deal.

i have other friends these days who are into jumping and showing, but its all a little alien to me.

any who i digress, last Saturday we headed of to a local centre and it was time to ride!

now as a larger person i have been steering clear of this activity as i think it is a little unfair on the animal to carry such a load but after my Bootcamp experience i thought it might be a little less straining on the animal.

we had a little lesson first on walking, turning and even a little trot, and more importantly getting the horse to stop

i was given a gorgeous horse called Tickle to ride

as you can see me and the horse had matching asses so i felt right at home

not saying that I’m suddenly going to join the jodhpurs wearing crew but i did enjoy it and may return for more
