Shortly after I took up horse riding again after too long a hiatus, I realised that I was fast turning into what one of my friends had previously described as an ‘insufferable horsey girl’; the type who talks about nothing but horses and her own riding endeavours. I had no desire to give my friends cause to tire of me, but at the same time I found myself with a lot I wanted to say on the subject, and in need of an outlet for it. And thus, I created this blog, for anyone interested in reading my anecdotes to access at their leisure rather than have its contents forced upon them.

A little about myself and my riding background: Like many little girls growing up in the UK in the 1980s, I took pony riding lessons once a week after school as a child and was at one time also a member of a Saturday morning pony club, but all of this stopped before I started secondary school due to the increasing cost of riding lessons. Save for a few group hacks on school trips and so forth during my teens, I then didn’t have another opportunity to ride again (largely due to time constraints and the high cost of adult lessons), although I maintained my love of horses and a desire to take it up again some day.

My chance to start again came when I decided to give up work and return to full time education in my late twenties, in the most unlikely of places… Tokyo.

This is where the adventure begins…
