Storytelling Sunday 2

Sian is hosting Storytelling Sunday 2  today - stories in words and pictures, or just pictures.

This month I am sharing a photo:
When Pippa and I were little we both took horse riding lessons. We were entered into a gymkhana at the riding stables and although we didn't win anything we both got a rosette and were so proud of them! Soon after this I was thrown and didn't ride again for about ten years!

Hop on over to Sian's blog to see some more photos and stories this Sunday and don't forget to leave a comment on the stories you see!

Love the vintage photo, the car looks familiar I think it is a Ford Cortina? We had a navy blue one. Glad the fall didn't put you off completely even if it was a little while before you got back in the saddle.

A lovely story (apart from you falling) and a great picture.

I'm afraid I've never wanted to get on a horse!!

What a great picture, it has to turn up on a layout soon :)

Melissa said...

Great story to go along with the photo. I've always wanted to learn to ride a horse.

I love the way a photo can bring back such great memories.

You both look so happy in the photograph. I love the matching jackets, so retro! Glad the fall didn't put you off horses. They are lovely animals.

What a great photo to have, especially as you both have your hats on :)

Sian said...

Oh, yes! It has worked for me now Becky. Thank goodness :)

I love this picture - just look at the pair of you and that wonderful car behind. Those were the days, eh?

Cheri said...

You can see the pride in your photo! How fun!

Such a cute photo - it certainly tells a story in itself.

Where I learnt to ride we got a special rosette for our first fall :-) It was to encourage us to get back on straight away as we only got it if we rode again. The first time is always the worst! Congratulations on winning a rosette as that is far better!

I've found the rosette! Watch the blog - I intend to do a layout using the photo and the rosette - it was in my 'baby box' that my Mum gave to me when I got married :)

Oh how fun to have found the rosette - definitely needs to be scrapped along with the photo!

P.S. I think my younger sister had a coat just like those - made me smile.

What a super photo of the two of you and how great that you still have the rosette! Looking forward to seeing the layout you come up with.
