Legal Adult.

For my 18th birthday my lovely sister and her fiancé organised for me to go horse riding.

Those you of that know me well would know what I consider myself a country girl at heart, a bit of McLeod's Daughter and have always wanted to go horse riding. What a perfect present.

But on the morning of my birthday my sister got a text saying that the horse I was supposed to ride had got caught up in some barbed wire and had some pretty bad cuts on his legs. Not good shape for riding unfortunately. I had no idea at the time what was going on.

We went to church and then when we got home Mum told me to get on some clothes to go to Kenilworth. I love Kenilworth so I thought this sounded pretty good. We had lunch at Nana McGinn’s (lovely café in the main street) and then we headed off to a friend of ours (Suki) Farm. They told me of the plan for me to ride a horse and about the accident which meant I couldn't. And then they told me their back up plan.

I could spend some time with some horses that are too old to ride but perfect for cuddling. I was pretty happy with the alternative anyway.

Meet Legs. He’s about 20. I got to cuddle him and talk to him and brush his mane. Country girl heaven.

I look like I belong right?

My horse ride will be happening soon. The horse is nearly healed and all ready to go. I can’t wait!
