The weather has been nothing but wet since yesterday which leaves the tracks and roads nice and muddy. This morning Laura, Ashey and I set out with Amir, Magic and Nile to complete 12km. We headed out along the road past all the camps and into the national reserve following the road at a trot and then headed back to complete the 12km. All this done in the rain, which seems to have followed me over from Britain.
Perseverance regularly has hunters stay here as part of their business, and allow them to hunt the kudo which roam across ther land. The first hunters have arrived for their weekend of hunting Kudu.
The afternoon we had another 6km to ride with Amir, Magic and Nile. Orient has not failed the test but Bob has been busy with the farm so has not been able to ride with us. So off we three went into the light drizzle. However, it soon became apparent that Magic was becoming a bit footsore so had to go back. Amir and Nile carried on and then it was time to turn back to head to the farm. In which case the rain came down heavier. On turning round Nile found a lot more energy and proceed home at a faster trot, leaving Amir and Laura behind. Laura and I were once again very wet but both horses have now passed day 3 of the kikkuli test.
It currently is still raining and has not stopped since yesterday. The river near the farm is now running with water, whereas it was not when I arrived. It does not normally rain at this time or quite this much so I definitely think the British weather has followed me across the world!
