Noth­ing holds Alienor back

Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
