Emma’s recent Highland Adventure involved taking two unbroken Highland ponies on a coast to coast walk across Scotland. Equipped with only very basic supplies and not even a tent, she slept al fresco with the ponies! During the arduous journey, she bonded with her new companions, gaining their trust in tough terrain and harsh conditions, and even swimming with them across rivers. By the end, she was able to ride bareback and reinless to the final destination of Ullapool, on the east coast. Emma chose the Highland ponies to accompany her as they have thicker skin to cope with the midges, strong legs and substantial bodies to carry loads across the bogs without sinking.


During the previous month, Emma took her two Shetlands (Albert and Ernie) back to their native Isles to camp amongst the wild herds and explore its ancient traditions. The Shetland pony evolved with relatively few importations as all animals had to be brought by sea. On hearing this, Emma promptly set about teaching Albert and Ernie to sail, which they took to like ducks to water.


Both the Highland and Shetland Adventures will feature on BBC One’s The One Show later in the year.
