Well this was NOT that kind of horseback riding.
This was legit.
Ok, so they didn't actually give the horses a swat on the rump. But the horses did gallop off. They had a mind of their own, those things.
After the initial shock of trying to reign in a 600 pound galloping beast wore off, we were able to steer the horses into doing a couple laps around the training ring to get our bearings. Then it was time to take our beauties out on the town and test our new-found skills.
Eventually we all managed to untangle ourselves, but not without a few good scratches along the way. But what´s an adventure without a few battle scars?
Mucho amor y gracias a Jean y Jeancarlos!
