I am terrible at keeping secrets so I was very glad when the surprise Birthday present for our friend Michelle remained a secret until the last moment. Michelle was staying with Paul and I for a short holiday and arrived a few days ago. She did not know what was going to happen, only that she needed to wear trousers and flat shoes for the morning outing. “No Michelle not bungee jumping”.
Club Hippique was perfect with a friendly and welcoming trainer who has won so many medals for his (and his horses) abilities and expertise that it would take too long to list them all.
The tour lasted about an hour with the trainer escorting Michelle all the way down to the river Dordogne and back.
Paul and I walked along with them to enjoy the stunning views of the country side so occasionally we needed to catch up.
“We need to be on a horse the next time we plan a tour Paul”.
So cute, mom checking baby is right behind her. Only born three weeks ago to an Arabian stallion and mare.
We all had a wonderful time, thank you so much.
