ANOTHER LITTLE GEM - EVARISTO PEREZ, NEAR ARACENA, SPAIN
It seemed daft to stay on a farm with stables and horses, not having a go at horse riding. There again, it seemed daft to self inflict pain on oneself by riding an animal in whose presence we've never been comfortable.
However, we took the plunge, phoned Marco to organise a horse ride - which was surprisingly easy as he speaks very good English, having lived in London for two years. If you ask him he'll tell how his teacher was a Carribean Cockney girl.
As neither of us had even sat on a horse before this, Marco tactfully suggested we may need a few lessons before 'going for a horse ride' - and how right he was. On the Wednesday and Friday mornings Kate and I were given our first two riding lessons in the most glorious setting by an extremely good and patient teacher in the guise of Marco. That's him in the picture, and that's us on the horses.
Since these pics were taken in 2005 Marco and Gino have built up the horse riding side. Apart from riding lessons, which seem to be popular with both local people and rsidents alike, you can now take riding days out with picnics and so on if you're able to ride. Some details can be found here.
