Part 1. Riding in the out-back.

My wife, self and Amado going for a ride in the compo in the hills. Two trips with the 2 horse trailer, about 20 minutes each way. Rain showers so the lens got a little wet.

Rough road. Save MY coffee and check on Chican. Amado saddles up Hechicera with Chican off to the side.

On the trail.

The whole Island was under water for millions of years. You find the petrified coral reef in the highest mountains. Razor sharp. Hard to farm.

Take a look at this photo. This is typical Paso Fino style. A large dog appeared and was circling us. Can you spot my side kick "Bob"? Bob is always near me.

Little finca's all around. Milk waiting to be picked up.

After around 2 hours we stop to visit some old friends.

Water system.

One saw for everything.

New electrical system.

Wow you all live such interesting lives! I'm loving all these pics!

Ok, I'll go...

Occupation: Retired from corporate life 5 years ago to raise my kiddos. Have been in school the last year to become a LAMP (Equine Massage Therapist)

Marital status: married for 14 years

Children: yes, still little ones, I got started a little late

Location: out in the boonies, but in a sprawling subdivision where our neighbors know if we snore too loud.

Where I keep my horse: I board her at a Morgan Show barn about 35 minutes from me

Hobbies: Dressage, showing, visiting wineries, drinking wine, bird watching

If I could ride anywhere: I've ridden in the carribean ocean and in the mountains of maui - both were bucket list items. I'd really like to ride local trails one day.

Job with horses: This September I will graduate and take the state exam to be certified and licensed, and start my equine massage practice. Really looking forward to it!

Part 2. Out-back in the Dominican Republic.

Laundry area.

A 2 "hole'r". I'll go over there and water the garden.

My wife and Amado waiting for some coffee. The "kitchen" is the shed to the left. They use wood for cooking.

Our friends have done well. They have the BEST store in the area.

Rain letting up and wife and Amado ready to go.

Some homes. Some even have TV antennas.

We go up to Monkey Jungle for a visit with another old friend. A Gringo that started this place to raise money to help the poor in need of medical treatment.
Zip lines, imported monkeys, birds and other fun stuff. We tie up just as the rain starts again.

Tourist waiting for the rain to stop to Zip line.

Thank you for looking. (My wife in Colombia with another friends horse.)

Well I thought I would throw out a few picts of some of our local riding trails. The one of us in the water was the first time Hunter went the "Splash" at one of our local riding trails.

And for those who haven't seen it this is our property about 3 hours drive from home. Lots of awesome riding. We rode up to Sophia lake (pictured) it was a bout a 7 hour round trip. Hope to get up there with a bunch of riders this year.

The paddock but all 10 acres are now fenced and Hunter loves it!

Sereno I LOVE your pictures. Can we come ride with you and then maybe we can all go onto Stans? We ride to the beach here but its no where near as nice as there.
I had to add my picture in for the butt contest.

That is the best butt by far even Stella could not compete how ever I may be able to but that would be another story. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news we had moved on from judjing butts to peeing behind trees when on the trail. I know, hard to believe folks 40 + engaged in such a conversation but it happens. Some fool from New Zealand asked the question how is it when on the trail men nip behind a tree when the women have such good bladders. Well some do.. And yes I to forget a lot of what I have read when posting a reply, so don't feel you are alone. Good trick is, I take notes but then forget where I put them.

Well that has been a great ride through others riding areas even though it was armchair style. Awsome photos and what calabre was your friend Bob. Is it for animals or two legged.

I would love to ride the area shown but can't find my passport so i'll have to be content with home. On leaving for the morning Where is AlexS I miss being got at.

Talking about stores I went for a coffee when on a trek but it was closed.
And I thought I'd attach a couple more photos. The start of a trek to raise money for the riding for the disabled. 130 plus horses set out, a shot of the end of the day and of course the place where I stopped for a coffee. I was not riding, Stella was sick. She manages that every summer just at the time the treks are on. It was a two day event.

Hunter65 There is always someone who does not know the front of a horse from the back.
But I am confused.
The photo of the shower it appears the bottom half of the door is missing. Care to explain that.
