The third activity of the day was horse riding. Not my specialized subject but one I have been improving on over the last few months. I can now walk, trot, canter, gallop and jump. The horse I have learnt on is Elsa and she is amazing. We are brining her back to the UK to sell her as she will be a perfect kids pony. She is so easy to ride, almost push button infact. Easy steering, good brakes etc etc.
Yesterday we did a 3hr ish ride up to a church ruin Chapelle De Lugeat, a 1000m climb above the valley. The way up was steep and rocky though the horses managed well. It was so much easier than walking and well worth the effort :-)
