Back on Board

Taken from the rider's view on a horse, a white horse's ears and top of neck. the background is a stoney track with grass verges and hedges on either side.

If you follow me on any social media platforms, you might have already seen that, at the beginning of this week, I got back in the saddle; well, the metaphorical saddle, as I was actually on bareback! It was a spur of the moment thing, although I’ve known for a little while that it wouldn’t […]

A photo of a girl (Holly) in an electric wheelchair with elevated legs, lunging a light bay horse in a grass field.
