I did another lovely horseback tour yesterday.

It’s such a great way to get into the outback nature and forest habitat without much effort.

Horsejungle Audrey

This time I went with Horsejungle Audrey, who is French.

She has about 15 well cared for horses and nice tack, about 5 kilometers west of Samara.

We walked along the road to the crossing at Rio Buena Vista,

We stretched our tour out a bit with a stop for wine and Pipa (green coconut milk).

Not a bad way to spend a Sunday in the tropics.

I’m not an accomplished rider and can’t control a horse and a camera at the same time.  When I got home and I realized I had no fotos of mounted horses,

so I’ve borrowed some from previous rides.

There are a number of horse tours in and around Samara, each with its own special route and scenery.  Just one of the things to do while staying at Casa Mango and Casa Papaya.

    Thanks, Joseph. However, I didn’t take most of these fotos. Since I can’t handle a horse and a camera at the same time, I had to borrow pictures from Horsejungle Audrey.

    This is fantastic, Sandy! I can’t wait to show my daughter, Maya. She’s learning to ride horses. The cost is about the same here in Texas. I love the great photos you took. Wonderful post!
