Lesley and her sister arrived on the Thursday evening to beautiful blue skies and wispy clouds, but very hot! At least it seemed very hot to them but they were soon assured that they had arrived on one of the coolest days for a few weeks as the temperature was only in the low 30 degrees!
So it was lovely to sit outside and cook the evening meal on the Barbecue whilst discussing the plans for the weekend.
The next day Lesley had an opportunity to fulfill one of her ambitions. Having ridden horses in her teens, and taken up the sport again for a while in her early 30's (where she was often accompanied by her then teenage niece Georgina) she had been pleased to find that Georgina had started horse riding again in Spain and was now keen to meet her new acquisition - Kiwi - a gray horse that she had started riding at the local stables and had now bought.

Plans were made for Lesley to ride another friends horse, a skewbald called Percy. The ambition? Percy was ridden with a Western saddle and Lesley had always wanted to try riding with a Western saddle! Real cowboy style - well they did make the Spaghetti Westerns out in Spain so why not?
(It was very comfortable once she remembered not to lean forward when going up some steep parts of the path through the woods as the high pommel does tend to catch you in the ribcage if you do so.)
