I had a group ride Sunday and then a nice hack down to the river on Tuesday and on both I nearly came a cropper :rolleyes:
On Sunday the route we took crossed over a previous event route several times, they had used blue spray to mark their route with arrows, the first 6 or so were fine but after a trot where Jess' was arguing about trotting steadily enough so the others could keep up, we met the horse eating arrow. She spooked sideways full pelt and I thought I was a goner. I was just thinking about grabbing a hunk of mane in the hopes of making my feet hit the ground first, but by some miracle I managed to get my weight back over her and not fall off :p

I've never known the ground this hard here, we had to keep it pretty steady.

Then on Tuesday I thought I would take Jess down to the river for a splash to cool off, we had a nice ride out there but she isn't very patient and didn't really make the most of the river, a quick splash then she was ready to head off again, but the 5 mins we were there at least her feet got some moisture :)

The river is surprisingly deep for the time of year, especially as we haven't had rain in ages, just goes to show how much rain we had over the winter and how high it was, I had to take my feet out to stop them getting wet :p

Lovely pics, very jealous, I'd love a river I could get Raf down to, he is still very wary of water. Funny about the horse eating arrows too - I swear Raf knows what they are and stops when he sees one to make sure I can see it too - I think he must have worked out that that's what we do :)
