My wife and I were holidaying in Flushing (across the water from Penryn and Falmouth).
After a brief horseback experience on our holiday to Cuba earlier this year we decided to have another go so off we went to the Wheal Buller Riding School.
Due to us being total novices it was decided that we should go on a steady hack (two hours...our choice) with one of the stable girls (sorry, forgot her name) leading the way on foot.
My mount was called Harvey and my wife's mount was called Mia. It's a good job the stable girl was leading the way because my wife's mount was a little feisty and needed a bit of persuasion to move on (only once or twice)
My mount, Harvey, was as good as gold and looked after my so well. I gained confidence on the way round and even lead him to grass now and again so he could have a snack.
We took a lovely trip around the Redruthian area and got some lovely views of the old tin mines and countryside.
The downside was that halfway through the ride I started with typical hay-fever type symptoms which, in October, should be non-existent. I started with streaming, bloodshot eyes and an asthmatic type chest which got worse when I arrived home. This culminated in calling out the paramadics who administered a nebuliser and a anti-histamine injection.
This is in no way an attack on the riding school but a word of warning to anyone who could be allergic to horses (which I guess I was)
So, once again, thanks to the Wheal Buller Riding School and we will be back (this time with precautions)
