The venue - Delamere Forest October 2006 DELAMERE FOREST
14th October 2006

Report by Sarah Reeves
3 generations at the start - Delamere Forest October 2006

I attended the ride with Lynne Gardener and her friend. The ride was very enjoyable and the route was well marked and marshalled. It was a different route from what I had ridden before so that made it even better and the weather was just right; not too cold nor too hot.

The Go Ape centre didn't pose a problem to us as the route was run round the outskirts of it through the forest tracks. All horses were well behaved and we all came home in one piece.

It was a 12 mile route and it took us about 2hours, but you felt you had only been riding for 5mins as we were soon home and had to leave the lovely scenery behind.

For anybody that has not attended this ride, then they must come next year as it is a ride that has no road work as its all forest tracks.

I would like to say thank you again to all the marshalls and organises for making this ride a very enjoyable one and I hope to be back again next year.
