WEEK 6 | Mexico a Caballo
Flores Magon to Tuxtla, Chiapas | 79 kms.
All 3 riding days featured group riding.
Roxy is also a bitch to other horses.
So what is it I like about group rides?
Hanging out with other horse people, seeing nice horses, and the beer. Or Tequila.
The first 2 days of the 3 were nice, the 3rd was in heavy traffic and not nice. The riding since Comitan was on a narrow country road, not much traffic but occasionally lots, and no shoulders. But approaching Tuxtla it got REALLY busy. That’s why the ride from Chiapa de Corzo to Tuxtla was done by trailer.
Super social week in high 20 weather. Rain in the afternoons, evenings. It’s going to get hotter as I carry on to Veracruz, but after that, I’ll be in the clear once I’m up in cool Puebla and onwards.
I gave one presentation on solo horse travel at Rancho San Antonio in Chiapa de Corzo. It was a decent turnout! The part on barefoot hoof care and Easyboots seems to be the most popular, followed by feeding the traffic horse. Looks with Easycare Inc. is going to need a Mexican distributor!
Big thanks to my hosts Enrique, Adelin, Gerardo and Enoc/ Othon!!!
The little day visit to San Cristobal was also very nice. Thanks to the Cabrera Family.
