Dear Active Travel and Clonshire,

What a wonderful adventure! I loved every minute of my stay at Clonshire, and I have already started saving so I can come back next year. Thank you for treating me as part of your family.

Please thank all the wonderful young ladies at the barn for teaching me so much and taking such good care of me: Marie, Joanne, Katrina and Yvonne. And of course special pats for Augustus, Aubrey, Nero, Tristan, Nasdaq, and Laughton. I learned something from each of them.

I’m looking forward to riding Piper tomorrow to see how he likes it when I sit up instead of slouching. (At least that’s what I hope I’ll be doing.)

Again, many thanks.


Nancy Tuckerman
