First time Globetrotter – Cheryl Warwick

In the spotlight

Cheryl 2Every year Cheryl Warwick spends a week with her daughter, Georgie, for some good old mother-daughter bonding time. This time they decided to join us on our globetrotting adventure in Japan and had one of the best times yet! Hear what Cheryl had to say about her first time as a globetrotter below.

What is your day job?

Farmer

How have horses influenced or changed your life?

They have taken me places, both literally and figuratively, that I never thought I could go to.

What is your earliest memory of horse/s?

Being about 6 or 7 and learning to ride on an old horse that belonged to a friend of the family.

What was your childhood pony called?

It wasn’t my horse, but a pony I rode a lot as a child was called Nimbus.

What does riding or being with horses mean to you?

A portal for me that totally takes me to their world.

What have horses taught you the most?

Love and caring and discipline.

What was your first globetrotting ride? 

Japan

What made you take the plunge and sign up for a globetrotting holiday?

I take my daughter on a week’s holiday every year – mother/daughter bonding – and thought this looked great. We both love horses, riding and Japanese food!

What is your most memorable globetrotting moment? 

Riding on snow covered ground to a lookout and seeing Mt. Fuji shrouded with clouds.

Why choose this type of travel? As in exploring a new country from the back of a horse? 

Being with people who share your passion for horses and riding and seeing the countryside from a horse’s back and at a different pace to a lot of frenetic tourist offerings.

What is your favourite safari horse of all time and why?

Only had the one, so far – Dasha, who looked after me and I loved. I had lost my nerve a bit and Dasha has gone some way to restoring it!

A tip that every globetrotter should know before going on a ride….

Open yourself up to experience and enjoy everything and anything that comes up!

Finish this sentence – Don’t leave home without….

Arnica!!
