I used to ride, too. I was a pony club instructor and also taught dressage, showjumping and cross country privately. When I was in London I worked briefly at a stable in Kensington retraining ex-racehorses as hacks. I called myself the crash-test dummy of Hyde Park. ;-) I worked with the horses at taught riding out at Cherrabah Resort, just outside Warwick, too. Chester looks like a great horse. My 16.2hh chestnut thoroughbred was called Mate. Nice to meet you Robert. I'm heading down your way next week for lunch at George's Paragon Restaurant, then out to Canungra overnight and up to O'Reilly's the next day for lunch. Too action-packed for catching up this time, but maybe we'll meet one day, eh?
Hi Robert! Thanks for friend request. I wonder if you'd like to join us in the Aussie, Kiwi and South Pacific Atheist Group here on AN. We're pretty active and have recently been making a lot of noise about the appointment of Jesuit priest, Fr Frank Brennan, as chair of the National Human Rights Consultation. You can see my posts on behalf of the group here if you're interested.
