Every little girl wants a pony

I have a friend who is going to do an  Alpine Horseback Safari through the Kosciuszko National Park with her family and she is the one in the family who hasn’t ridden in almost as long I haven’t

So she has found some-where in Kangaroo Valley where she can practice and ensure she doesn’t let the team down

I am assuming it’s this one . Anyway in a moment of madness I said I would go with her. So I got up on the ladder and got my old exercise saddle down from its spot it was sharing with a wasp nest in the garage and decided to clean it up.


Its amazing what you can do with some (a lot) Ge-Wy dressing ( after you have removed the wasp nests)


Not bad for a saddle that’s been sitting on a beam in the garage for 37 years. But I think I will give these a miss


Who out there is my age and did the show circuit when everybody bought their saddles (except when you got snobby and imported them from Germany so you could keep up with the Jones) from D Stuart and Son at Sutherland?
