...to everyone who has been in touch with messages of support, offers of help and good wishes (not to mention donations to World Horse Welfare). HUGELY appreciated, and we aim to be worthy of your faith in us!
Today is a dry run (hopefully it will be dry anyway!)- we are riding up to camp overnight on the beautiful Bamff Estate, courtesy of Paul and Louise Ramsay. This is an opportunity to test out all the gear and make sure that the packhorse load is working well - and see what we've forgotten probably.
We are to be accompanied on this mini-expedition by friend and instructor Shonagh Steven with her delightful Highland Dougal - they are to be joining us on the 'Cheviots' part of the trip so good practice for them too.
