Lunch will be followed by a siesta and free time to relax and watch the birds pass by. The afternoon activities will be a variation of trail rides, excursions or a theory class to discuss what you learned in practice.

Natural horsemanship

Aventura Doma Natural understand natural horsemanship as a holistic way of keeping and training with horses. They base their principles on love, understanding, and boundaries.

The relationship they have with their horses is free of judgment and includes a positive attitude, where the horse feels safe and valued. It is based on communication in which they will always first listen, understand, and then share their ideas. This relationship is also surrounded by boundaries that they set in order to be able to be safe and give the horse room to express himself.

Full-day trail ride

You will ride over the mountain and get down on the other side. You'll pass a little neighbor village and will stop for a midday lunch at the river. It's time to cool down and take a swim. Heading back, you will hike up the mountain.
