We also welcomed the very beautiful Monty as a new rescue. He is photographed below and is a very special boy. When we went to see him, we were not expecting it to turn into a rescue, but he was in a bad way, very skinny and terrified of people and all they had to offer.
Unfortunately, he collapsed in the trailer on the way back to the farm and got all bashed up. I felt so bad for him, but he is doing really well now and actually trots to see us in the field, so we forsee a very happy ending. I have started doing some clicker training with him so we can get his feet trimmed and he loves it! What i really like about clicker is that the horse (as long as your timing is good) gets a very distinct yes answer if he worked out want you want! It makes them very motivated and i am as hooked as the horses.

The Private Tropical Beach Ride, New for 2014
Nothing compares to running a horse along a tropical beach, watching the sunset on the horizon. Don't be held back by other riders, it would be just your group and our guide! We will take you and our horses to the most pristine and deserted beach on the central pacific coast. Drift along side the lapping water and enjoy the sea breezes, open the horses up into a run on the wide open sands.
Spot the flocks of scarlet macaws that make their home in the surrounding almond trees and the many wild and rare ocean birds. Stop at a private rancho to enjoy fruits, wine and beer (limited to one per person due to safety!) Unforgettable.
Times depend on the low tide. Suitable for intermediate to advanced riders. Children over 10 years. Minimum 2 people. 3.5 hours $130 per person including fresh fruit salad and drinks .
