20 years ago I managed to persuade the BBC to let me buy two horses and ride them don Offa's Dyke which runs along the border between England and Wales

I started with two horses, then I had three, then I ended with one

    Great listening Dylan

    So where have they come from and is there any chance of the missing parts appearing?

    Finished the book you sent me yesterday. Thoroughly good read would recommend it. Is Molly the horse you still have now? If so she has lasted better than you thought back then.

    I love adventures like that. Back in the early 80s an army friend I decided to see how far we could get along the Pennnine Way. We started from Edale on a Saturday climbing up Kinder Scout, there are two ways up this the easy and the hard way, we took the hard way! Half way up my friend hurt is leg and the pace slowed it progressivley got worse during the day and we did not make our target youth hostel that night and had to camp out on the hills. In the morning his leg was much worse and I had to carry both our kits and support him off the path and down to Glossop where we got a train to Manchester went to the hospital where he was diagnosed with severely damaged ligaments, so that was the end of that. I still want to do the Pennine Way. Could it be done by horse?
