A friend and I once made the mistake of accepting as many glasses of sherry that we could when we went on a thing called the Sheriffs Ride in Litchfield UK - we were fine on our horses but had a lot of trouble standing up and walking in a straight line when we got off
But we were young and foolish then!!!

Oh that sounds like fun Lichfield Sheriff’s Ride

(I'm not too keen on sherry though)

No neither am I but it was a lot more exciting than weak orange squash I can tell you!!
I went on my first Sheriffs Ride when I was 9 and fell off when my pony spooked and ran into a telegraph pole.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I have to admit to only doing man chasing bloodhounding, but still like having the hip flask to keep the cold out

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have jumped half of what I did without a wee bit of help!!!
I could sit here and laugh for a week at some memories of what I've seen people do out hunting!!!
How about this one - I loved the thruster of the week series!!

Port for me. Or sloe gin. Or sherry, or damson vodka.

Anything goes really so long as it's going to warm the cockles of my heart and fill me with courage :)

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
