Second Home


Hawke's Bay

Sarah, 12

Hi, my name is Sarah and I am writing about the Tukituki river. It is my second home in summer and every weekend I do a 15 kilometre ride along the river then go in it with my horse. It is so lovely to go to the river after such a long ride. The water is so crisp and clear. It looks like diamonds shimmering in the sun....
Then my horse goes bounding in and stirs it all up! She loves the water!
In this photo my horse and I are teaching ourselves gymnastics!
Then after we are completely soaked we finally hop out!
