Since buying our horses and importing them into
the UK from Andalucia, Spain, Doma Vaquera has given us purpose as well
as way of life.
Purpose, unfortunately, not in the cattle-ranching sense but in setting
out to learn some of the basic equestrian skills and techniques that are
used throughout Spain in the handling and training of horses and in particular,
Way of life because since embarking on this long and winding path, with
many turning points, we have had to change the way we think about horses
as well as the way in which we ride them.
We are certainly not proclaiming to be experts by any standards. Indeed
we have only really just started to understand what we are trying to learn.
We do have a very deep rooted enthusiasm for Spanish Horsemanship and
in particular Doma Vaquera and this enthusiasm is contagious. On the rare
occasions when we do have the chance to meet with other like minded souls,
we can be talking Doma Vaquera and exchanging ideas into the early hours
and start all over again at sunrise.
sound of the Spanish guitar strumming out a flamenco rhythm together with
the silhouette of a lone Vaquero riding off into the sunset, tilted sombrero,
hand on hip, the other hand on the reins and a cool gentle breeze conjures
up images of a dream. A dream of partnership and unity between horse and
man. A dream to savour and not let go.
Dreams sometimes can come true.
