Last week I went for a trip on a horse drawn barge – one of only four left in the country. It was a wonderfully relaxing trip and the autumn colours were glorious.
The horse was a beautiful four year old part bred Comtois called Teddy. He only started working at the beginning of the year and had the summer off as it was too busy for him then. He just came back into work this month but you wouldn’t know it – he behaved very well indeed.
He was very keen on all the polos he was given at our half way stop. I think he must have eaten a couple of packets!
It was fantastic to be able to travel on a proper horse drawn canal boat. It was incredibly peaceful, especially when everyone was quiet for a couple of minutes. A perfect way to spend the afternoon.
