I have always loved horse riding. I was always a bit of a nervous rider but I slowly progressed and got a lot better, all was going well until I rode an ex-racehorse. Cutting a long story short I had a terrible fall. Breaking my leg, splitting a calf muscle and severely damaging my knee. My physical injuries mended but my confidence was gone. In fact I was nervous even standing near a horse. But I wanted to live my dream and learn how to ride. I sent an email to Wattle Creek Equestrian Centre telling them my story and asking them for advice. I received a phone call from Julie that gave me the confidence to at least try one lesson. My heart was in my mouth when I got on “Pepper”, But by the end of the lesson I knew I would be back. With Julies’ patience and soothing words and pushing me a little further each lesson I was soon cantering again!! The feeling was amazing! All the staff at Wattle Creek have been fantastic, encouraging and patient.
