‘The Common Ridings are unique in my experience. Never before when riding through town streets have I been cheered by hundreds of people packing the pavements, or, on reaching the summit of an uphill gallop, been greeted by friendly strangers waiting to hand out cold beers! The riding itself is exhilarating and the landscape beautiful, but it’s the feeling of being included and welcomed into a genuine community tradition that makes it special. Kingston carried me on both Common Ridings, staying confident and surefooted over grass, stone and bog, up and downhill and across ditches. Suzy’s advice was not to think too hard and trust the horse. I would trust Kingston to do my taxes – he knows his job inside out!’
