Three year retest was due and finally it came! Friday 12th January! 3.15pm at Marlborough golf club car park – probably the nearest I ever get to being a golfer – met Ray the RoSPA examiner.

What followed was a tense 45 minute ride around the heart of Wiltshire; from Marlborough out to Ramsbury, Aldbourne, Chiseldon, Wroughton, and finally back up Hackpen hill to Marlborough.

Answered the final question and got awarded Gold in the RoSPA Advanced Riding Exam!!

Now my family have to put up with a Gold Rider and all the boring stories I can tell them!!

Proud as punch!
