Best Time Ever !!!!!! - hope i get the job!

Well, on Wednesday night i got on a train to travel 15 hours to a job trial on a massive trail riding place........first off........never again will i spend 15 hours on a trail without first booking a sleeper cabin! lol

Anyway, i got there Thursday arvo and had a wander around, checked out the horses, other animals, sleeping quarters etc, then got invited to go out with a 1hour trail ride booking. why not, im tired but i'll never pass up the chance to climb on a horse. it was awesome. the countryside is to die for!

while i was there, i mustered horses (about 70 of them), went out as a trail guide about a dozen times, treated wounds, injuries etc on horses and small animals alike. waitressed in their dining room, got grubby, cold, muddy, sweaty etc and absolutely loved it! I met some great people and some fantastic horses, and hope like h3ll that i get the job!

here are a couple of photo's that i took whilst riding Monty, im so glad he's quiet, i was swivelling in the saddle taking as many shots as i could before i had to leave.

enjoy guys, and please keep your fingers crossed that i get the job!
