Day 11 was a rest day and a day where I had to come up with Plan B. My friend Yvonne was due to join me with her two ponies for a few days anyways so we came up with a plan to continue with just those two, (getting our kit dropped off along the way) then when Yvonne left to go home I would have the two ponies I needed to continue on to the West Coast. Yogi & Swift were left to relax and recover in their field.
Day 12 was a very relaxing, sociable day with great views -that was after being tested out by Skye pony for the first hour of the ride. She needed to know exactly what kind of rider she was dealing with -i.e. how much grass she would be able to sneak in as we rode along! Once that was sorted we got along just fine.
