Horse Ride in Mexico

Johanna and I went riding. We couldn't resist. We commissioned a two hour ride through the jungle and to a more deserted beach to go for a gallop. The horses were in very good shape and well trained. We were impressed. They did not just follow along in a line, but followed our direction and moved off the leg. My horse was a gelding named Indio and Jo's was Reboso the black stallion. I kid you not. He was as gentle as a lamb. I was told mine was a butt, but he turned out excellent after a few reminders.



  1. Oh man!! I'm totally jealous TJ!! I *live* on the darn coast, and have always dreamed of riding on the beach. Looks like you guys had a BLAST!!!

    Happy that you got to go though!

  2. Best of luck for 2010 for all horse lovers!

  3. Way cool. Betty and I got to ride on a beach in Florida years ago. I knew you wouldn't have any trouble with a "butt" horse since you've been married to Mark for so long. ;)


  4. What an awesome ride! I'd love to do that!! You guys are always doing such fun stuff :)

  5. Look at that, I didn't even pick on Mark! I think Dan has got it figured out. He is my favorite cousin to pick on! I think it is because he dishes it out so well!
    The beach does look beautiful, not really what I think of when someone mentions Mexico.

    Oh for the love! How beautiful. We are seriously missing you guys!I'm sure your sipping your wine and sun bathing as I type. Well, at least I hope so. Hope you had a great time!

  7. I feel like a kid whimpering, "Me, too." I, too, have always wanted to ride on the beach and your experience looks perfect.

  8. oh what fun! I got to ride on the beach once, in New Zealand, and it is one of my best rides ever.
