Sabine's Smiling Horse Apache - the first horse
is the most experienced horse in the crew. He is an Appaloosa horse. Since he caught bull in the arena in
Tilaran before he came to Monteverde nothing can really scare or surprise
him. He takes what he needs and he neighs for it or he needs to go in our
rooms, where is rarely space to turn around...
|So I had a nice surprise for
him, a new challenge. I trained him for the Caballgata of National
Distance Race of Costa Rica. We went 90 km in 10 hours with 2 check posts,
where his pulse was incredibly fast down to 60.
Apache is an honor to ride for everybody.
He is getting our grand father now. He stands for incredible fitness no matter of look.
|Apache is retired since August 2006. Saying good bye to the first horse is incredible difficult and for that reason he is somehow still around us all the time. He set the spirit of all our doing in the beginning.|
I am always looking for some bananas. Sabine is never without them :-)
