Bear in mind: “When I go out on horseback with the people, sometimes I am lucky enough to see how deeply moved they feel. At that moment, I realize my job has been done.
Some days ago, I went on a tour with some Spaniards and, as we reached one of the ridges, I could see tears in their eyes. It was not necessary to ask why. It also happens to me sometimes.
I could say that I have the best horses or the most beautiful circuits, but I believe that it is not what really matters. What I do believe is the vastness of the landscapes, the moments when we get off the horses to walk up to a cascade or to drink some mate watching, feeling. If you ask me the name of that mount or that lake, I can say it and even bore people with some details, but the cascade is not how high it is, but its greenness, the fresh breeze it generates.
The mountain range is not a series of names. It is the delicate shape of every mount, the sight you get from a summit and especially, "it is what you feel, what I feel" when we are there.
Enjoying the horse, accompanying it with your effort during the climb, loosening the girth when we stop, letting it pasture for a while during the breaks, getting off in difficult stretches is the meaning of horseback excursions for me. In short, horseriding is enjoying the horse, the mountain and life.”
