Reblog: Horses, Me and the Andes

I introduced you to Laurie, a while ago when she told us all about the Ecuadorian guitar making village of San Bartolome.  I have to say, I’m loving visiting Ecuador vicariously through Laurie but she’s making my South American bucket longer and longer every stop I make at her site, Life On This Side.

Today I’m sharing another one of her detailed posts, replete with gorgeous photos, about her adventures horseback riding in the Andes.   She showcases Rancho Patachocha, located near to the city of Cuenca. It’s a family run ranch that offers rides.  Head over to Laurie’s site and find out so much more.

Here’s a taste of her photos to entice you…

    Thanks for sharing! This was one of my favorite places…so far… Come see us in Ecuador! There is SO much more!

      You’re welcome. It’s so beautiful. Ecuador doesn’t get the attention it deserves compared to some of the other South American nations… you’re certainly helping change that! 😉
