Jean is a professional photographer from Canada who loves horses and rides her own horse at home. When Jean planned her upcoming winter visit to Spain with her family to escape the dark winter cold of her home country for a while, she contacted us for a tailor-made, one-on-one experience in our world of PRE Andalusian horses.
One sunny morning, she then arrived accompanied by the family – husband, children, grandchildren – professional camera and video equipment in place to properly document her Spanish Horse adventure.
As she approached the horse we had prepared for her to sit up, Jean might have wondered if what she had promised herself to do, was really such a good idea. Once in the arena, the initial tension soon gave place to relaxation and the connection started building. Breathing deeply, Jean's feeling in the saddle was gradually transforming into one of pure delight.
With dressage instructor Laura Campos Duran shared her insights in the mental focus, connection, seat and contact recommended for riding purebred Spanish horses, Jean soon looked as if she had been riding these magical creatures all her life.
Joy, pride and utter contentment was Jean's summary of our day in the sun. She hoped to come back soon and nobody would be happier than our team to receive her for another horse adventure.
