Hi, my name is Meg and i am lucky enough to be owned by a fabulous horse called Merlin; we are attempting to enter the world of Endurance Riding and i have decided to keep a blog of our adventures! This is for both for future reference to look back on and hopefully also to get chatting to some new people who are already in this world competing, or who are thinking of taking the plunge themselves and would like to learn from our mistakes!! A little background......i am a 27 year old mother of a gorgeous 9 month old son, married to a wonderfully supportive man....and serving in the British Army! I have only had Merlin for 7 months, me and my husband bought him while i was on maternity leave and he is a 15.3hh palomino PBA (Part-bred Arab), aged 6 years, with the most fabulous temperament you could imagine and a very kind heart......together so far we have done some mega long hacks and pleasure rides and are currently training towards our first Competitive Ride (CR) on 18th February in the New Forest......so let us begin!!
