Equus has had a very good week:
Two treks went out to the forest of Menagesha Suba - one of them with two seven year olds! (miraculously both treks seemed to dodge the rain). The two kids came with their two mothers – both sisters themselves – and where inexplicably born on the same day. Sam and Kitty were a pleasure to ride with – and race against!
The second trek, with two guests from France, and an other two from the Dutch Embassy here in Addis, also went very well.
One two day trek took place at the stables (perhaps it was the fact that the guest was Scottish, but guest and guide got rained on… five times in one day!) So it goes. We still had a really great ride.
This week, Equus is doing its last training session in the exciting new community horse tourism development in Lepis, not far from the shores of Lake Langano (you can take treks in the forest underneath podocarpus trees with 8 metre diameter trunks and see the lake in the distance).
Equus also had the pleasure of taking our new guide for her first trip. We are happy to be able to say that Kandace Stranger took her responsibilities with great seriousness.
