This morning I finally went on my horse trek! I wasn't too sure what to expect after the guide spoke to me the day before and to judge my ability she said 'basically, can you really hold on?' but I told her I could and was so glad I did! I had the biggest horse out of the 3 of us called Rico. He was a bit mischievous at first but I soon managed to tell him who was boss! We went trekking for about 2 and a half hours in total and saw some incredible scenery (it's kind of hard to avoid when you're in New Zealand). I've ridden before but only when I was younger and I've never had the chance to go faster than a walk.. but today we got taught how to trot and to canter as well! That was definitely the best part- cantering through huge fields in amongst the hills was pretty cool! I had a really great time and even though my legs are pretty sore now I can't wait to go again next week! :D free traditional horse riding lessons in exchange for a bit of cleaning- not a bad deal at all!
