Horse riding and feeling good

After reading about bees and how well they get on at school in France 😉 , we thought about nature and how good it feels when harmony has its place.

Here is what Alice tells us:

I go horse riding. I love it because it isn’t only a sport: to me, it is a life style.
I go to a riding ground near my town and it is a beautiful place. I spend some hours there two or three days a week after school, more in the summer. 

When I am on this riding ground I feel great, because I’m surrounded by nature with horses and lot of funny, crazy friends and instructors; we joke all the time!!! 🙂 I usually get there at two pm, I take the horse from his paddock, I brush and saddle him. Then I mount the horse and we go to the courtyard for a lesson of hurdle jumping, which lasts an hour. When we finish, I unsaddle the horse and I take him to the field where he eats some grass.
I really love spending my time in the riding ground!!!!!! 😉 🙂 🙂

Indeed, it is a fantastic place also because some people organize “horse therapy”; it is beneficial to people with disabilities, in fact after staying with a horse for a while they look happy and relaxed – like me when I am there 😉

Fight for pink

This year’s Tour of Italy has begun. The famous cycling tour is called “Giro d’Italia”. It is one of the most important stage races and, to me, the most fascinating in the world! It usually takes place in May. This year as many as 23 teams are partecipating with nine riders for each of them.

Usually, the victory of this important event goes to the one who wins the hardest uphill, in fact, it’s always the Dolomites which decide the winner 😉  The prize for each race is a pink shirt.

I hope Nibali will win because he’s my favorite runner, although Wiggins will be hard to beat. I am happy because my parents will allow me to go and see them on the three peaks in Lavaredo.

Do you like watching stage races? Do you have a cycling tour in your country?
