In late November we joined the Waitemata Hunt in a trek along Te Henga walkway down to the sandune lake at Bethells and along the beach. Stunning scenery, with crashing waves and huge cliffs, and fabulous riding along the streams and through the farms.
I took a week to think about buying this horse. On paper she was perfect... black registered quarterhorse, both parents 15.1hh. In person though, she had an unpredictable streak, and ears that gave fair warning this wasn't going to be straightforward.
