More horses and riders at Foxton


Our daughter and Danielle arrived home in Rotorua very late Sunday night, and today I have edited and emailed photos galore.

This is an assortment of photos from Saturday, the Rotorua team are in Blue.

This little building would have been so appreciated.

This was the horse truck for 8 horses, hay, and lots of gear. I have heard that the driver was so very helpful, thanks from all the girls and horses.

Quotation of the day, author unknown

“ Life is like a camera,Focus on what is important,

Capture the Good Times, Develop from the negatives,

And, if things do not work out, Take another shot”

Greetings from Jean

This was very entertaining, Jean! Lots of photos gave a real sense of being there! Looked like a lot of fun too! And I am slowly but surely learning more about the 'horse world'.

Fun to watch- my kids did horse shows when they were in school, then switched over to hogs. I had to laugh at your last post about being told to sit still and not get lost...sounds like me and my mother. :)
