Astrid Waite has been horse riding at Checkendon Equestrian Centre for five years now. Since she started she’s been winning loads of rosettes at loads of Galas and competitions all over the local area with her horse Tod.
Astrid said that her favourite competition was the Halloween Gala where she won five golds, one silver and two bronzes. She also said that her favourite bit about it is ‘letting yourself free with the horse’.
She definitely recommends horse riding to everyone. Because, even if you’re not a massive fan of animals, it teaches you to trust them.
