About Alison

A feisty mother earth type, who has an opinion about everything I would like to think I use my "chopsy" attitude to throw some light and perhaps a new slant on current social and cultural issues.

Since I moved to the country for a quiet life I have been lucky enough to create a more healthy more relaxed environment for myself. I love country life, Family, Friends, Horses and Dogs. I also love, photography, writing/chatting and connecting with others.

Please have a look at a collection of my photos blog,


or join in on my chats here or on my otherblog


which follows my efforts to learn to ride and care for horses in my 50s! or just follow me on Twitter and I will follow you back (if you are a real person) on @alisonbarton1. Enjoy and talk to me.

Making a little progress with my Canter

Not much to say about this, just all my life I have dabbled with riding. I love horses with a passion. Only recently (last four weeks) have I had proper instruction. If you could see my first lesson with the fabulous Hayley Rogers at Redbrook Equestrian centre http://www.redbrookequestrian.com/  you would see how hard she has had to work with me. I can't help it I feel I have made real progress today I know its still rough but I want to say a big thank you to Hayley. Thank you! see you next week.
