A word from Patrick Lloyd, Noosa Horses…

“I Just Love Horses”

Horse riding in Noosa is my absolute favourite thing to do! I’ve ridden through Hyde Park in London, watched monkeys swing through trees from the back of my horse in Malaysia, cantered through forests in Hawaii and kicked horses up hills in Japan, but screaming down the beach on the Noosa North Shore or loping through the local hinterland is as good as it gets.

I don’t know what it is about horses, but there is something that just draws you in. They are the ultimate organic extension, the instant ability to take off and turn at speeds like nothing else, being able to stroll through all kinds of environments breathing in the fresh air, listening to the birds and enjoying good company.

However to love horses is not to just to ride, but being interested in anything horse related, being around them, smelling them, and squeezing their noses when no one is looking. I don’t know what is about horses, but I find it really hard to stay away from them.

Bob Loomis said it best, “Some people love what horses can do and some people just love horses . . . I just love horses.”
