Beaten by the rain - again ...21/06/2008 - 10:29 PM
I tried. I took the camera along to Ashridge in Herts when my other half took some youngsters from the local Pony Club (and parents) for a ride round the woods this afternoon. Glad to report the kids had a good ride round and none of them got lost or fell off. But it was warm and wet and the light was awful for photography. Midsummer's Day!!! Grrr... Still the dog and I had a good walk at least!
But we did have some drama when something spooked two of the ponies and they decided to go round again on their own! Amazingly, considering the size of the area, one of the riders managed to spot them on the track, grazing on some lush grass, and brought them back. We all had visions of nasty accidents or missing ponies for days ahead. (Which reminds me of a doggy tale I'll tell you another day.)
