Urubici - Just Horsing Around

Back track to our first day at Jordans, amidst the excitement of seeing some cool spots and the interruption of the tornado I left this out.

Jordan loves his horses and took the opportunity while we where there to saddle up and go for a ride, Jordan had all the skills while we watched on with the setup.

Soon enough we were on our way, galloping across between the lakes at walking pace then down an extremely steep track fording a ragging torrent to meet up with an extremely busy road and around through native rain forest back up to home.

Leisurely explains it pretty well, the horses of course knowing the noobs didn’t really know what to do so pretty much they were playing follow the leader with Jordan leading the way and the pace....

After the horse racing we spotted a bird which had caught snake and was busy having a pretty good lunch by the looks of it

Great wee side trip from the main trip exchanging steel horses for real horses

Thanks Jordan we very much enjoyed the ride around.
