So we’re having an amazing, if broiling, summer with scorching temperatures in both England and Colorado (and everywhere else in the world, it seems.)
Pam completed the “French 500”, an amazingly difficult (she says) 500 kilometre tandem ride from Redhill in Surrey to La Rochelle, South West France. She swore her bottom swelled to double its normal size despite shedloads of padding!
After that it was time for her annual volunteering stint, this time in Devon providing lunch and support for the intrepid super-fit challengers tackling steep hills and rocky paths on rickety-looking mountain bikes. Still it was all for charity so hats off to them. And if Pam spent most of her time, snuggling up to the Dartmoor ponies that run free in this most wonderful part of Britain – well, who can blame her!
Meanwhile Lorraine went to Wyoming to gentle and train some untouched baby Spanish mustangs looking for homes and hang out with the lucky herd who’ve found permanent sanctuary in this beautiful ranch. She also managed a quick trip to Arches National Park and added baby goats to the list of household pets.

And for those who love the chance for a free paperback, we are holding four (4!) giveaways on Goodreads!
Meanwhile Lorraine will be working on trust, handling and starting under saddle the horse she brought home from a rescue (only for a few weeks, honest, Gary!) Spicy Mocha came from an Indian reservation, never touched apart from branding, and was rescued with her foal and five others from a slaughter auction. She was wild, fearful and ready to fight people when she arrived at Zuma’s horse rescue. We had to teach her that we were OK really, that she didn’t need to defend herself, and now we’re moving along her lessons, hoping to get her on the trail this summer. She looks pretty relaxed here enjoying our lush grass.
And Pam will be testing her endurance by joining a unique but gruelling 600K charity cycle ride from Biarritz to Barcelona (via the Pyrenees!).
Then, when she comes back she has a week to recover before flying to Nice and cycling (again!!) to Rome – on the tandem. She must love her husband very much to endure such torture.
