We had a most successful Summer School - the girls worked hard and did very well.
We provide training for riding, dressage, coaching, trekking and ceremonial!
The Four Hour Mountain Trek A four hour mountain trek by our students went very well - it was not easy .
It was 8:30am and most riders turned up nice and early to get their horses ready for the long ride. You always have to wait for someone don't you??? By 9.00am we were all tacked up ready to go, the last two had now turned up. Armed with our ruck sacks, we were loaded with food and water and lots of hyper activity from seven excited juniors. As we left the yard, they all waved good bye to their parents. We set off on our little adventure up through the hills towards Benidoleig.
At first we rode through the orange groves, our big horse "Eagle Star" of 18 years of age, usually slow, decided it was fun to be at the front, then also our little mountain pony Freddy, was at the front too, and the higher we got the more in front he wanted to be. Every now and then he stopped, looked behind towards us as if to say "Come on then!!!". He was the unfittest of all the horses but I guess he felt at home riding up through the hills...
