It may have started with my love of reading; all the best novels have a noble steed. Two of my Dad’s favourite poems are Mulga Bill’s Bicycle and The Man from Snowy River and so they were mine, too. This fictional love of horses soon grew into reality and I found so much pleasure came from horse riding.
My best friend lived on a property just outside the town I grew up in and would stay over on weekends in the hope I would get to ride her horse. (My other best friend had an alpaca farm…we took to riding in the back of the truck rather than terrorising the poor animals).
I haven’t taken the chance to explore options since moving here, so can you help me out Canberra? Where is the best place to go horse riding? Do you take lessons or go out for easy-going trail rides?
Let me know your favourite place to go horse riding in the comments below. I’ll visit the two most popular and decide the verdict in next week’s article.
