Who? Me?
The Yeeha Cowgals

There was great weather, most of the time.

Always an interesting beginning – meeting our ‘transport’. So much trust involved from both partners in this ‘gig’ and not much time to develop it.

Before you know it, you are up and waiting, me on Misty this time – and Yes, you guessed it – a flea bitten grey – must have something to do with someone’s age I am beginning to think!!!!!!

There was also rain,wind and cold some of the time. πŸ˜‰

Rain, wind and cold arrived on our way home – no one was in any mood to take photos and this one doesn’t really show how wet and miserable we both were!!!! Trust me…..

There was laughter, most of the time. πŸ˜‰.

Not Actually squashed against the tree!

There was also a grumble or too some of the time. πŸ˜‰.

There were great views, all of the time😍

we (seriously) let them eat too!

There was a horse stuck in water, for some of the time.

And a great sense of relief when she finally stood up again 😍

img_9026
A planned human pit stop….. and an anxious wait for a horse swim stop to stop
img_9017
Great relief when both were confirmed safe. And we could continue.

There were canters to die for and some who thought they would! πŸ˜‰

Long lovely stretches to canter

as we ambled in to Anglesea ( Pete what did you do with Jacqui?                                                                 I hope she is at the end of that rein!)

There was exhilaration and exhaustion.

For some it was hard to tell which was which !

There was tooth ache; bum ache, leg ache and β€˜unmentionable’ ache. πŸ˜‰

img_8995

There were hot showers, Uber eats and β€˜Thirsty Camel’ to lift our spirits

so that we could drop our bodies into warm beds. 😊

There were crack of dawn starts and lazy long lie ins. 😴

There were beach walks, energetic runs, coffees and breakfast. 😊

There were new friends made, old histories shared, bold futures imagined and

joint memories made. 😊

And just like that the Yeeah cowgals weekend was over.

And yes, she was right.

It was fun.
