Hale’s Superbole –> Cheshire, England
Last weekend we took up an invite to get together & watch some horse boarding in Cheshire. Be rude not to ^_^
Here’s the deal: we met at Hale’s Superbole Mountain Boarding Centre near Chester, parked up, got out and took some pictures.
We took a picture of the van (of course!):
We took some pictures of trees:
We took pictures of a demolished barn:
Even further up we included the showground and some actual horses:
Right at the top we found out what Hale’s Superbole is all about: it’s actually a Mountain Boarding Centre [a very picturesque and brilliantly laid out one at that] and the horses are used to pull people on mountain boards (think slightly bigger version of skateboard on wheels) across the showground. Well, I call it showground, I have no idea what the correct term is. Field? The grounds are also used by mountain bikers and the kids we came across up there were super talented:
Then we walked even further up and into the woods.
We found some amazingly beautiful looking trees and because we love a good lense flare we took some pictures of them, too:
We were also going to take some pictures of the Abseiling taster session on offer but unfortunately our retired mountain dog’s legs weren’t up to it so we carried him back down the hill and then he happily chilled out on the grass. But before we got back down there we finally took a picture of an actual horse:
After that we sat down to watch the competition and couldn’t stop taking pictures of horses……..so I’ve narrowed it down for you [it’s actually surprisingly difficult to take a great shot of people & animals in motion, if, like me, you’re not used to it, boohoo. Apologies for the blurriness, I promise I’ll try’n improve my photography skill set. Soon!].
I heard Horse Boarding was invented by some stuntmen and is now a recognised sport. How true that is I don’t know but it’s definitely fun to watch and I’d happily sit and watch it all again. Happy campers.
