Berenice Walters - Gifted and Devoted Horsewoman

Another little known fact about Berenice is that she was a very accomplished and devoted horsewoman.

Her first horse was Gai who she loved passionately. In the 1940s Berenice and her friends would ride from Maroubra to La Perouse and onto Dolls Point.  They seldom came across traffic and the only spend up was a milkshake on the way home.

In today’s Sydney, that is a distance of 21.4 kms and would take 30 minutes in a car. The satellite picture from Google maps below shows how built up that part of the city is today.
