The Rockbourne Ride

Getting up at 6AM to go somewhere you’ve never been before is always going to be a bit of an adventure. As was the case this morning. I departed for Tenantry Farm, between Fordingbridge and Salisbury, just bear with whilst we re do a bit of the journey.

I left the M27 at junction 2, on to the A36 heading north toward Salisbury. Conditions varied between no rain and a heavy drizzle and associated low cloud. I was able to see that I was driving through some absolutely lovely Wiltshire countryside, rolling green hills and woodlands, and then just before turning south, the spite of Salisbury Cathedral became a way marker appearing slowly out of the crowds. A lovely sight, it was just a pity that I couldn’t stop to take a picture.

Arriving at Rockbourne, I was surprised at the lack of activity, a tent and a few cars in the middle of a field.

My role for the day was to shadow the event organiser, Kayti. Under the circumstances, this was a relatively task. It appears that around 70 people had booked to ride in the British Horse Society (BHS). As it happens, only 35 turned up. The event is not a race, or timed, over a roughly 6 mile circuit that caters for everyone from beginners up.

Everything went OK apart from a horse sustaining a small cut – it was alright.

The weather varied between a fairly heavy drizzle to the sun making a brief appearance, whilst the tops of the trees were moving a fair bit, we didn’t really feel it at ground level. It certainly wasn’t cold. All in, it was a very pleasant day, and one I would be happy to attend again next year.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
