My trip to New Zealand

I'm going to New Zealand in January to learn, work and holiday. The guy I'm staying with is an AWESOME horseman and I hope to learn heaps from him. He has a lot of people come to stay with him and I thought I'd share some of their experiences with everyone so you know how much fun I'm going to have!

Oh and another awesome fact about him . . . .he was a horse rider extra in the Lord of the rings!!

And these are different articles although they don't look it from the links.

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

have fun and be safe.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
