Let's go backAnyone with me?
Mog loves riding horses. OK this one was so small it barely counted, but still, I can't help wondering. Specialist backriding; someone to sit behind her, someone to walk either side of her, someone to lead the horse, someone to load her onto the horse in the first place and be ready to catch her at the other end. Too labour intensive to be practical; she had a few sessions in the summer holidays for a couple of years and then it was someone else's turn.
Take a campsite providing donkey rides; she sits astride and balances with a lot of help from her Hensinger and from yours truly. I'm sure we didn't get the full workout the backriding gives her. But she had fun, she got a good stretch and she was working hard to stay upright.
Free physio, another reason to camp. For Little Fish, I think the highlight was sitting on my shoulders eating ham. I'm not quite as convinced that this is a good reason to camp.
