    Ouch, those rocks look like they'd be tough on the horses' hooves.

    If I'm honest, AJ, the video was taken at least partly for my blog, which tends to attract foot fetishists - hence the rocky close-ups, 'cos thats what fascinates them

    The terrain here can be tough but I am in awe of how brilliantly my horses and their hooves cope with it. I didn't believe they could do it at first but they prove me wrong time after time

    Nic,
    Great shots - what part of Exmoor? My guess would be around Simonsbath or the Doone Valley. I started riding as a kid in Barnstaple & used to make a weekly trip out to Challacombe - my grandfather was borne in Bratton Fleming.

    KSBadger - you are very close :-) The footage was taken around Cheriton Ridge/Farley Water and around Exford - suspect nothing much has changed since you knew it!

    Photos here from Saturday - only the meet 'cos I couldn't ride :

    Nic,
    I know it doesn't change much - I remember being shown the entrances to prehistoric mineshafts on Exmoor, just stones on opposite sides of a water-filled two feet hole. The stables I used to ride out of, Mr. Lee's yard in Pilton, closed even while I was there in the 60s after they built over the paddocks.

    Unfortunately links to North Devon are few now - even the cousins are only around Ottery St. Mary. The strange thing is that, apparently, I'm part of the second family group to come out to the States - my grandfather's brothers came over with the LDS at the turn of the century!
