A Jubilee Ride on my magic grey mare, Sonadora de Estaban

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:15 pm by aleksan

Me and my speedy magic grey mare have just been out for fierce exercise – my lovely friend and trainer, Sarah Johns says to me “Sonadora needs hard exercise, she is losing her tone – don’t come back till you have got her sweating”
So off we go – Sonadora aged 18, and me a crippled old man of nearly 68 – gaiting all the way through Longstock, past the pub, over the Bunny Bridges, nearly a mile along the Test Way, through two roundabouts on the A30 and down Stockbridge High Street – to the delight of tourists and locals alike.
I was pleased to hear “Doesn’t she go well” as we raced by at a good pace, dodging cars, motorbikes, pedestrians and tankers – soon we were on our way back on a country lane to Longstock and home. About 4 miles in – wait for it …….20 minutes. But when I got back Sarah said “Twenty minutes! I didn’t mean go fast just work her in the Corto!”
You can’t win with women, but one old gal and one old man had loads of fun…
