So, the time has come to take the next step and ride Ras at a competition on my own – this time without 3 ‘bodyguards’ to protect us!
First, a solo practise was needed. Not completely alone (if you can count the company of a slightly hung over teenager), we set off into the distance with just the sounds of the birds, the footfalls of Ras and the moans of pain from our accompanier; past the wild dogs, the savage ducks, the life threatening logs piled up ready to fall onto us, we made it back to base. Not the fastest time ever though – our pace having been dictated by a certain person now lying on the floor, pleading starvation and a continuing headache!

Why buy a house in the Dordogne?
France is a large country – five times the size of England – and with a really varied range of climates, environments, house styles and region specific food and wine. There’s a lot to choose from. Given all it offers, it’s no surprise that France is also one of the most visited countries in the world, both as a tourist destination and as a location for a second or principal home.
Useful tips for buying your house in Dordogne
How are you going to use your house in the Dordogne?
This is probably the most important question to ask yourself. How are you going to use this house? Is it a permanent home or a holiday house? How much time will you spend there? And how many of you are there? I suggest that you write a brief – a wish list – with all the important things that you want the property to have, and in terms of priority. I propose that you limit yourself to 6 or 7 items.
