When we arrived, the rain was over, yay! Don't TB's have good luck? We registered ourselves. Everyone who wants to ride, has to sign a paper, haha. They were getting ready our horses while we were waiting for 2 other people. They were Kary and Gilberto, both Francisco's friends. Francisco was calling them to check if they were close, haha. Around 15min later they arrived. Now we were ready :)
We had to wait for a bit more - of course in the meanwhile I was taking pics - and then they finally called the 7 people group: "el grupo de 7!" I have ridden a horse just once in my life and it was a long time ago, when I was a little girl.
One by one our horses were coming. First Marks, then Jasons, the 3rd one was "Sensacion" that would be mine, hehe. All the horses were brown except of Jess', mmm. Did it mean anything? We didn't think so, until we found out the white horse was stubborn, haha. Our guide joined us. Actually we didn't need a guide very much, the horses already knew where to go ;)
Ok, first problem: how do I start this thing?, haha. The guide told us we had to blow kisses, so the horse would start to walk and then run, haha. These horses liked to be treated with love, haha. Since I wasn't an expert cowgirl, I hardly took any pic while we were ridding, but Francisco did and I'd steal them :P
By the way, the horses liked to follow the others.
The landscape was beautiful, all the greenery was lovely. We could see some cows and other farms nearby. It was warm, but not too much, so the weather was perfect too. Around 1 hour later we were back at the beginning. This experience was great and I survived! haha. Well, we didn't have much time left since Mark had to catch a flight early in the afternoon and we still had another stop in our agenda.
Well, we would just have to do the trekking fast, but before that eating a snack to get energies for later. Oh! I couldn't believe it. It started to rain... well does the name rain forest say anything??? haha. Just hope it would stop by the time we arrive to our next destination...
