These shaggy ink caps are growing in one of my horses’ fields this week.  My Dad used to make shaggy ink caps on toast for our tea 🙂

The most dangerous bridleway gate?


On the Herefordshire / Monmouthshire border between Welsh Newton Common and Ganarew.  This is near my own stable yard. Watch the video and decide for yourself. This gate packs a serious punch and is too dangerous to try and take a horse through.

Road Safety Campaign on Facebook


Please take a look at the ‘Slow Down For My Horse Campaign’ page on Facebook. It’s trying to raise awareness of the serious dangers faced on the roads by horse riders.
I think that it’s a great idea and it’s certainly creating a stir in the UK!
