 Huuge thank you to Candy for today's ride! It was super! I had a total blast - I've missed SERC so much! Sorry about the Blue face... But what can ya do..? (frightened the moster away for us...Ed.) Photo of Ben and myself beside the Loch (below), seeing as it was Ben's first ever SERC ride.

Thank you to SERC Highland, Candy and helpers for the ride yesterday! We had a great time and had a spectator! See photos below>>.

What a great day weather wise and the autumn colours were amazing. The tracks rode well. Spangle did 26km barefoot (proper barefoot; no boots) and the ride was very varied, had good fittening hills, smashing scenery and a few obstacles for the young uns to negotiate. Given she won't jump or do poles in the school I am very glad she does them out hacking!

We had a great time. Spangle was a little on a mission to chase all horses in sight (and those she knew had disappeared) for the first few km but settled down nicely to being keen and forward going but not pulling my arms out of their sockets! A few tack adjustments required before her next outing! Thanks Tilly and all others – (but Tilly especially who put up with being behind us for a bit, witnessed some nifty Spangle moves and also had us on her tail for a bit) - for being so understanding and courteous to us!

Helen & Storm were excellent hosts to Spangle, Monty and I and great & very tolerant company on the ride too! Pat took a picture of Helen and I down near the Loch and its no wonder the horses were looking rather like they were not for posing for a picture! Pat could have warned us! (See photos below>>).
