    Default Kirtlington sponsored ride with pics!

    Was kindly offered a lift to the Kirtlington sponsored ride this weekend alongisde Peaches and Lance. It's affectionately known as "the broken collarbone ride" after Bril and I had a rotational fall there six years ago. Ironically, the lady who drove us knows the very kind lady who rode Bril back to the lorry park for me, and we saw her on the course marshalling on Sunday too! She said he looked calmer...I'm not sure this was actually true!!

    I've been away for two weeks and Bril has been ridden a few times. I rode the day before and he was keen, on the day he was mad. I don't think I've ever had his head above my head before, but we had that more than once.

    We jumped most things 2ft3 or under, and the hedge which was the final fence which looked a bit bigger to me - unfortunately the photographer had given up on that one by the time we got there but this is the size of it:

    Sleepy ponies at the end!



    Bizarrely we also had several military planes go overhead and drop parachuters out as we went around the ride....
    Great fun day Everything aches still today, clearly my fitness is low!
