A Wheel and Away


  • In heaven in a horse box

    Although I’m a country girl, I freely confess that I have never really got the whole horsey thing.  I appreciate that they are beautiful animals but am ever so slightly scared when I’m on the back of one.  So, the prospect of staying in a horsebox for the weekend wouldn’t have necessarily been my first choice.
