There is something special about the clip clop of horse's hoofs approaching and the gentle jangle of their harness. Last week we cooked dinner for some riders who are on a 1600 kilometre (1000 mile) horseback adventure as part of the Thousandmiler trail ride.
On the day this intrepid crew rode into our property they had been in the saddle for around 50 kilometres through rain and freezing cold wind. Despite this they were in good spirits and happy to see a blazing camp fire and hot showers.
Under difficult weather conditions Terry skilfully cooked home raised roast lamb and crispy potatoes in our camp ovens. I could have happily spent the entire afternoon taking photos of the magnificent horses but catering duties called.
To our new friends, good luck for the remaining ride! It is an inspiring journey you are undertaking.
