We have been marveling this week about how cool the "Universe will provide" philosophy is. If ever we needed confirmation that we were doing the right thing with our lives, we certainly got it this week.
Chris had a wonderful email from a person he met here on a parelli clinic to say that a great barefoot trimmer was coming from the USA and could he meet up with her. Chris has been trimming horses hooves, and getting them healthier and much happier without having metal nailed to the hooves, for about 2 years now and is a sponge for new information. Well tomorrow he leaves for a 2 day clinic with the USA trimmer and will come back i am sure full of ideas to help make even more horses happier! It is not often that renowned people make the trip to Costa Rica, so he is making the most of it.
I had great news too. There is a wonderful book that has been published called " Is your horse a rock star?" by Dessa Hockley. It is about how horses all have different personalities and how to train them accorded to that personality and not just the cookie cutter, this is how we train horses mentality. I was reading the book and marveling at how it can help us so much with our rescue horses, and how it can make sure they are happy doing the job that they do here on the tours. I wrote to Dessa to congratulate her on her book , and lo and behold, she is now going to come to Costa Rica and meet with us and hold a clinic here. So excited. Isnt it wonderful when the universe shows you in no uncertain terms that you are doing exactly what you were put on the earth to do!! Yahoo to that.
Well it is really drying out here now after such late rains, the trails are wonderful and dry and the forest is alive with animals right now, i even saw an amardillo today,so cool. Hope to see you here soon.
Here are a couple of photos i took exploring up in the mountains.
