Our chestnut / bay horses were out on patrol this week… and looking gorgeous

Horses at the Ranch

We never get bored of looking at these wonderful faces – so here’s some recent snapshots of just some of the horses at the Ranch.

Come and meet them when you book a riding activity at Ranch Siesta Los Rubios. We always make sure we match the right horse in size and riding level and character to each rider. There’s always one that you find that special connection with. Everyone has their favourite!

Treats time

Treats time for the horses. Divina shining like black beauty after her pampering session. Hechi having some grass now the rains have come and it’s springing up everywhere again. And Ahitan deciding if this bush is worth eating or not with his fluffy winter coat on!

Welcome Divina

Welcome to the Ranch a new lady – Divina, with owner Catherine.

She’s rather gorgeous isn’t she?

 

Happy hackers

We have been busy introducing beginners to our horses with our Saddle Up 2 hour experience for first timers.
And taking a lot of children through our fantastic one-to-one learn to ride package called Trot On.
Plus of course taking people out riding and enjoying the company of our many liveries on the trails.
Here you’ll see Nicola, a new rider, taking Ahitan (Arab) out for the first time with Sylvia and Lord.

Rescue horse Brownie

What progress our rescue horse Brownie is making! From fairly ugly duckling to a beautiful fit and bold young lady. She’s got a gleaming coat, bright eyes and mind set on learning. We are loving watching her flourish with time, patience and care.

Here is Sabrina who puts in so much time training her and working with her to build her confidence and knowledge.

Best hair day

Our new girl!

A stunning big mare joined us this week to be brought on and find her a new forever home. She is not only beautiful in colouring but also in nature. Her personality is calm and sweet, she has wonderful paces and is proving to be bomb proof out on a hack. At 164 cm and 8 years old, she is going to make someone the best “horse in a lifetime” when she leaves us.

The 4th amigo

Our 3 grey amigos were joined by a 4th new horse – welcome Julio to the herd. What a super relaxed and capable big gentle giant he is proving to be. Although it’s making it increasingly hard to tell which horse is which in our grey Arab group now… you have to study them hard. But the 3 amigos were very welcoming to the new boy and happy to teach him the boy band moves…

He also met our lovely PIN and PON shetlands and instantly made friends.
