Riding here is quite different to how we've been taught and our hack could not have been more of a contrast to going round the country lanes of Cerney Wick on our riding school ponies. Here the horses don't have bits in their mouths. Instead you control them using reins connected to their halters. You pull the reins against their necks to make them turn and hold the reins in one hand only (the other being engaged in lassoing cattle or whatever ... ). Also they turn away from the leg that squeezes instead of towards it. For a while my poor horse was getting conflicting messages, but we got along pretty well.
Our hack went through knee deep mud, rivers, rain forest paths and more open cattle fields full of tussocky grasses
In the evening there was a big fiesta to celebrate the 40th birthday of Oscar who works here, izzy's tenth, and another guests 40th as well. They made 3 cakes and we played some riotous party games with other guests and locals
