Horsewomen of the Apocalypse

So here we are, decked out in our finest cowboy boots (yes, I really have my own cowboy boots to bring home with me!), saddled up and ready to gallop off into the distance.

After 3 days on the Sundance Guest Ranch in Ashcroft, we are walking like cowboys (ie. bow-legged) and wincing everytime we try to sit down, with seized muscles and saddle-sores.

The riding has been challenging – aside from not having ridden in a while, the trails we’ve followed have been up- and downhill, in places quite steep and rough. Still, we’ve had a great time, and by the end of the trip were able to canter fairly comfortably. More to the point, no-one fell off!
