Today started off really well (once Lauren managed to get out of bed). The ponies felt really good and we had lots of byways and bridleways. We were doing 8-10km per hour which is the speed we originally aimed for!
You know there’s a but coming... we hit a snag! A bridlepath that was so overgrown that we were there for an hour and only got about 100m down. This wouldn’t have been so bad but we were surrounded by main roads so rerouting wasn’t an option!
We rang for a lift but the lorry was still an hour away so we got a bit soggy which ruined our land speed and dashing our hopes of completing 50km as well as ruining our happy mood!
Huge thank you to Hill Top Equestrian centre for having us to stay overnight and even bringing the ponies hay on top of their lovely big field of grass!
Huge thank you to everyone who has been supporting us with donations towards Dogs Trust; Andrew Simpson Foundation : The Sailing Charity; The Racehorse Sanctuary and our continued work rescuing horses (www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/hesteyri-horses), kind comments, offers of places to stay and iso much more!
