“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends” – Maya Angelou

85km | 5 days riding

 

We crossed the border from Guatemala and started our riding in Mexico! 5001: México a Caballo truly started this week!

 

 

 

1 of the 5 days was hard the other 4 were easy. Mexican riding in general is way easier than in Guatemala. The roads are wider and flatter, there’s way less garbage on the side of the road, less dogs and people, and the drivers way less nuts. We rode at 650m elevation until the 4th day when we rose upwards to 1500m. It was hot until we got up higher! The bugs were bad and the ticks started showing up as the week went on.

We are now in Comitan where we will spend a few days and give a presentation to some horse groups. The horse people here are great and I’m really cherishing the opportunity to share and learn horse knowledge…Aftewards we make our way back to Tuxtla, where we spent time last August. There we will receive our new Easyboots, Mad Barn Supplements, and finish the spanish version of our Horse Travel Guidebook. Of course, Roxy and I will be visiting with awesome horse people and more Equine Therapy Centers.

Here are some photos from this week’s rding.
