have been riding since I was 4 (nearly 60 years!) and
my family has been riding on the Forest for over 20
years. We used to box in with my daughters ponies, and
since we moved to Nutley my youngest daughter regularly
hacks her eventers from our private yard. We also breed
from some of our retired event mares, so usually have
a few youngsters around, as well as a very naughty miniature
shetland. We have been in Nutley for 2 years, when I
joined AFRA - and I have been on the committee for 18
months, and recently took on the role of Chairperson.
After years of exercising fit competition horses round
busy lanes, what a joy to be able to enjoy hacking on
the Forest - what a pleasure it is to take in the beautiful
scenery come rain or shine from horseback - I am thinking
of getting a suitable elderly mount so I dont feel over-horsed
on Lucy's fit eventers!
