Nothing holds Alienor back
ALIENOR le Gouvello left France 10 years ago for a two-week holiday in Australia. After falling in love with the country, she didn’t use her ticket home. She is now living her dream travelling the Bicentennial National Trail with her three horses Cooper, River and Roxanne. Next stop on her journey, after a few days in Biggenden, is Kalpower.
IF YOU have a dream or a passion for something you want to do work slowly towards it and make it happen.
Alienor le Gouvello is doing just that and nothing is holding her back.
She left Melbourne seven months ago heading to Cooktown along the Bicentennial National Trail, a distance of 5330km.
Her horses Cooper, Roxanne and River came from the Guy Fawkes Heritage Horse Association which she is promoting along the trail.
Her first stop at Biggenden was the produce store for feed for her horses and then through the bottle shop for a couple of beers for herself.
While at Biggenden Alienor went to the Hospital and the Biggenden State School.
Alienor said she loved sharing her love of these beautiful horses and bringing awareness of better management of them.
“It was awesome to see the interaction the oldies got from the horses,” she said.
“My ponies were on their best behaviour.
“I was so proud of them.”
Alienor le Gouvello visited the Biggenden State School during her time in the town and spoke to them about the Guy Fawkes Heritage horses.
Alienor le Gouvello with her ponies Cooper, Roxanne and River called Biggenden home for a few days.
Alienor le Gouvello makes one last phone call before leaving Biggenden with Brittany Brookes.
Some of the local riders rode with Alienor le Gouvello as she left Biggenden on Sunday morning.
