Mountain creatures come in different shapes and sizes. About 50% of the people you meet will be awesome. Then there’s the irksome blonde 18-year-olds. It’s not true that they are all posh and called Arabella. It is, however, true that most are bleary eyed, clueless, incompetent spoons that barely ever go riding and spend the entire season behaving like the punters off Snow, Sex and Suspicious Parents. Steer well clear of these and you should have a splendid time.
