Thread: Shipley park pleasure ride

    Default Shipley park pleasure ride

    Tommy and I did our second pleasure ride today, a ten miler at Shipley park in Derbyshire. It was busier than the last ( and first) one we did a few weeks back and he was a little bit keener, possibly as we started off earlier and were riding with a lovely, very experienced anglo Arab mare.

    It was lovely and sunny although a wee bit stoney in places but he coped really well. We saw lots of scary things including donkeys, long horned cattle, some bridges to cross and go under and a kids play area complete with zip line. Had some lovely trots and speedy canters and he didn't seem tired at the end. Highlight was definitely a super fast canter involving being smacked in the face by multiple trees!

    RM I found someone to ride with through a fb group although I think the ride organisers will often pair you up with someone. All lots of small horse transport impairs advertise on fb.
