We are currently in talks with Glenn Stewart of www.horseranch.com to arrange for him to come down and do a "Colt Starting clinic" as a part of our Parelli In Paradise program. Glenn regulary trains with Pat Parelli and many other great teachers, we are excited for him to come and share his knowledge. The package will include lots of other fun things including endless trail riding, surfing and yoga, or just swinging in the hammock if you prefer! If you are interested in attending, you can email us through our main website www.horseridecostarica.com
Life on the farm is coming to the end of the dry season so we have been busy preparing for the impending rains in May. Chris has been busy tweaking drainage etc. For once we are doing it ahead! haha. I love June and July here the tours always see so much wildlife! The green forest needs to be seen to be believed!
The horses are all doing amazing, although poor Byron came in this morning with a horrible cut on his leg, so he is sporting a pretty bandage now i have cleaned it all up. I think my horse Archie has been getting a bit bossy and chasing him around a bit too much. Talking of Archie, i had a little photo shoot with him today for my Parelli Central blog (central.parelli.com), and he stole my hat mid photo. i will post it below!! Cheeky chap that he is.
The monkeys have been putting on a show this week, they have lots of babies with them which is a great sign that they are breeding and expanding their troop. I have been excited too with the amount of new birds around. Mots Mots both male and female are hanging around on the trail to the waterfall, i have tried to get photos but on the back of a horse that is a hard one as the birds flit around so much.
As you know we work with the dog rescue, we had great news this week as Slider, a small terrier that a friend of us rescued, but she lives with us at the farm, she got adopted by a lady that came on the tour and is off to Florida!! yay Slider gets a green card! We are so excited, as is Caroline the lady who is taking her, she has a nice soft pink bed and lots of toys waiting for her! Cappy the old dog with kidney problems has taken over the rancho and seems very happy curled up in the hay, he is such a happy chappy.
As always we are loving our life out here in Costa Rica, i love that in our life we truly are enjoying the journey, not just thinking about the destination! Happy days.
The photos below are of Archie, my equine life partner!! haha Also of the horses on a day off munching contentedly. Check out Chris´s new fence too!
