Back in Altea and Simon is on his way to Seattle, I wanted to send you a mail post ride.
I really enjoyed riding Babiaka as did Simon Diamond. Babiaka is such a sweet horse, so willing and plucky. She had her ears firmly set back throughout the ride because she was miffed at not being in the front……..but she and I got on great. She hardly ever tossed her head and enjoyed a very loose rein.
Simon was so impressed with Diamond and they, too, formed a bond.
We both enjoyed the ride and survived well in every way. We were lucky
to have very good company and an a great time with Pip and Lachlan. We
really appreciated the stay with Chris and Dave, super hosts, and Esperanza and Simon were also very sweet.
Jane was super energetic and managed all her tasks and responsibilities so well, if she seemed to suffer from caffein/nicotine withdrawal symptoms on occasions as the riding day came to an end!
All best and once again many thanks for helping with the Schengen visa for Simon.
