Five Cowboys and a Cowgirl rode way out west to Pembrokeshire to play at a cricket tournament near Narberth and to return a trophy won last year. There was a bit of a delay rounding up the horses and saddling up early on a sunny Sunday morning and after hours of cantering through the Brecon Beacons they arrived late, five minutes after the cricket had been abandoned due to rain.
No matter, they were well stocked up and there was generous hospitality and a barbecue back at a farmhouse, set amidst a lush garden of surprises, with outbuildings and polytunnels to explore as the unrelenting drizzle continued. It rains so much around here that it's not unheard of to use a polytunnel as a cricket net.
