Rufus Ride

Sorry no pictures. Madam has successfully completed her first endurance ride. Just a baby one of 23km, but psychologically huge. I was worried about her 'Mum'. Her 'Mum' was worried about her feet. I don't think Madam worried about anything, except could she catch up with whichever horse happened to be in front of her.

She did surprise us - we had always thought her too laid back to be very competitive, but not any more!

We had a bit of drama, one competitor came off 200 yards from the finish and was knocked out. Took the ambulance over an hour to arrive.

Madam's pulse on starting was 46 and at the finish it was 48. She floated during the trot up, we were so proud of her and the stewards were kind enough to be encouraging of our barefoot efforts.
