Horseback Riding Can Be Therapeutical

I recently went horseback riding in the Rancho Del Sol Dorado in the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende, and the experience I had was incredible… Animals run freely on the ranch amongst the trees and cacti, tables outside are set near the homes of the kind ranch owners who made us enchiladas for our dinner as we listened to the Mariachi band play traditional folk music and Banda Norteño. We hop on to a saddle of a horse, learn a bit on how to maneuver the majestic being, and head off into the meadow. On my way, I learned the name of Indigenous flowers, fruit and cacti species. I picked berries called pinguica off a tree, as I continued riding my horse named Moro. We return to a table of guacamole and totopos (tortilla chips) as we drink Agua De Jamaica (hibiscus water), as we watch the sun set on the horizon in the campo (countryside). The experience of being in  nature and so close to all these animals is therapeutical and very calming.  As such, I return to the ranch every Saturday for my horseback lessons, with the same horse, Moro, and I am very fortunate.
