Chirsty’s first “proper” horse ride

Christy has been madly in love with horses for some time and has been wanting to have lessons (like her friend Shantel). She got a taste in Fiji when she was lead on a horse along the beach. With Amy having to attend a school dance rehearsal yesterday I thought it the perfect opportunity to take her for her first proper ride. She was so excited when I told her she wouldn’t be led this time.

She had a wonderful time and is very keen to go again. Shame it’s so expensive. Afterwards we stopped at Stanwell tops to enjoy the view over Wollongong.

I really do live in a gorgeous part of the world. This is about 30mins north of where we live. Kiama, where we are holidaying, is 30mins south.

Of course, you can’t stop here without getting a choc-top ice-cream. A treat with a view. Yum.

Great day for an ice cream

We then picked up Amy and headed back to Kiama.

    Hi Libby, what gorgeous scenery you have so close to home. So lucky. I can fully understand Christy’s love for horses, i was lucky enough to start riding lessons at 11 and got my first horse at 16. It is a very expensive hobby, but also very addicting, once you have horses in your blood…they are there forever. I sold my last horse when my youngest was born with a newborn and a seriously ill toddler and suddenly finding myself on my own…well sadly my horse had to go, but even to this day still totally horse mad :)So is Christy even more keen for more riding lessons now? Enjoy the rest of your holidays.

    Looks like you are having a wonderful holiday! My daughter rode for a while but it got more expensive than we cold afford. You really do live in a beautiful spot! I can never tire of seeing those pictures.
