Yesterday I took a short trip down the road to Stratford Hills Cross Country course for their clear round XC day!
The weather was perfect, save for a bit of a chill from the wind at times, and everybody was in good spirits enjoying themselves. We overheard a few funny conversations between rider and horse over the course of the day, and there were plenty of you going round the course positively beaming. Rightly so!
A mixture of jumps. Freedom to mix and match; all a recipe for success, and that’s what the day was all about.
Thank you to Lauren for inviting me down for the day, it was a pleasure and turned out to be a lovely sociable event. I look forward to seeing more on the calendar.
If you’re interested in hiring the cross country course to have a play yourself, head over to Stratford Hills’ Facebook Page and give them a call or drop them a message. The scenery is beautiful and the rolling hills won’t fail to give you a challenge along the way!
Well done to everyone who rode yesterday – you were all fab! Images are now published, and you can view them here
If I could choose a photo of the day, it would be this lady and her wonderful honest pony! They jumped the brush from standing, and then managed to make it away from the other side of the jump at speed.
