It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

"To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive"

obviously never flown long haul economy class"

Macatoo Camp - Foster

Here's Foster's official blurb from the camp brochure:-

  • 15hh, 2006, local Kalahari horse.
  • A handsome bay horse who likes to go fast, but also very responsive to the touch – he enjoys jumping.
  • He has a small white heart shape on his face.

Cantered through water for the first time in my life on Foster - it was amazing!  I found Foster to be the slowest of the three horses ridden at that point – though apparently he’s the fastest!  Again, it's obviously "horses for courses" - I’m sure it was just my riding style.

I only rode him once, for a morning ride, as I'd done a game drive in the 4WD the night before, so I'm sure we would have meshed much better if I'd ridden him again.  He was rather lovely and very sure footed.
