Recently when we were in Cabo, my husband played golf and I hung out with the horses. Although I had owned a horse for many years, I had become quite anxious and lost the pleasure in riding. Well, these people restored it! I went on a desert ride, with sand, cactus and millions of butterflies, on a terrifically responsive horse. I couldn’t believe that when I said stop or slow down, he did! This was a well-trained horse with a very soft mouth, not your typical hire by the hour. Another day, since I had enjoyed the trail ride so much, I took a private lesson. Again, I was delighted with both the quality of the horse and the instruction. By the end of the hour, my enthusiasm for riding was restored and I was ready, and excited, about doing more. While hanging out at the barn for those two days, Valente and Francisco’s attitude towards training very much impressed me. They want the horse (and rider) to enjoy the work and have rhythm - they are willing to work with both the horse and rider, investing the time to bring them along slowly and quietly. I saw such joy and passion for the work in both the masters and their equine partners, that I wish I could have a horse that they had started. I look forward to my next trip so that I can ride with them again.
