Amelia Wegener: Wild Stallion Tamer

Okay.. Not really. But, we did go horseback riding in the countryside today. It is one of the prettiest places I have been and it was nice because there was no noise/cars.

Also, unlike a lot of tours on horses, it was just us and the guides. Also my guide happened to love galloping (which I found out today, so do I!) So we got to gallop through the green countryside. It was pretty amazing. I think that I am going to be sore for weeks, but I guess thats the price you pay right?

I might have accidentally fallen in love with my horse. Whoops.

Also we got to wear these huge mud/rain boots, which made me wish I lived in a rainy city so I could rationalize buying a pair of rain boots. But it did start pouring mid ride and they kindly provided ponchos for us to wear.
What is the first movie to pop into your head?

The guide (Juan) and I both thought it looked a little Lord of the Rings-esq. Regardless, it was a lovely day, and only rained for a couple of minutes.
Well... Thats all for now.


  1. Sounds like it was awesome! Horse back riding is a lot of fun, I wish I had more opportunities to do it. I'm also sore from gardening, I worked all day and I can hardly move.

  2. Millie! Wow I'm so jealous, your pictures are SO PRETTY! Anyway, I'm so glad you have a blog I love it. :) Miss you!

  3. That's so sweet you got to go horse back riding! Especially through all the green countryside and with a guide that actually went faster then just walking. I like the pictures but I'd have to say the last one is my favorite. :-)

  4. Amelia, I love that your comment looks like I commented on my own blog! That makes it so much better when you comment.

  5. Mills! Miss you so much! Keep posting lots cuz I love reading about your adventures. I totally thought of LOTR when I saw that pic! Don't get too sick eating the food over there! Tell your mama I say hi! Loves!
