Horsing around

As we're planning on doing a lengthy horse trek while we're in South America I decided it might be wise to actually get a wee practise run in first. Although once an experienced rider, I haven't actually been on a horse in about 8 years, and Adrian thinks he may have been on one once. So. Off we went to a tiny village called Glenorchy, and once there we were introduced to our steeds for the afternoon.

Adrian was lucky enough to be given Harry to ride, a filmstar, no less! Harry starred in two of the three Lord of the Rings movies. My horse, Little Red, was not famous but was lovely nevertheless. We spent nearly three hours on horseback riding through a valley and across the Rees River. The scenery was stunning and the ride was great fun.
