The riding was arduous but immensely satisfying.  The bonding between riders grew and became truly inspirational and so fulfilling.  The vistas were never ending as far as he eye could see.  Cantering on the beach was exhilarating.. Learning to ride using English and posting became a non-issue as did living out of saddle bags.  Joyce and Christina brought the group together, helped tremendously with the horses and led us on a spiritual journeys.  The spiritual aspects of this trip added to the fullness of the experience in ways unimaginable.
