Horse Riding

The kids’ dream has finally come true. Horse riding in New Zealand is a bit like playing football in the UK. Everybody seems to do it. So we thought finding a riding school for our girls would be a doddle. Unfortunately we quickly realised learning to ride came with one major challenge, you need a horse. There is plenty of people willing to tech riding but they all expect you to have your own horse. Well we did after a bit of research and a lot of luck find the right person to teach Nina and Anna and supply horses at the same time.
I still feel nervous around these big creatures but it took our girls only a couple of days to get used to their new friends. Nina and Anna look like naturals even going bareback, although I have heard Anna is very good at falling off when going around corners.
