How could a girl not say YES...
Special rides are just.. well special to arrange and be a part of - the excitement, planning, secrets are all simply contagious!
Mails and phone calls fly back and forth while plans are plotted, locations are chosen, sparkly bottles are put on ice… and of course all has to appear normal “back at the ranch” when the couple arrive, for “just another adventure”…
With great relief the weather forecast changed from gloom to sunshine, friends were coerced as helpers to set up ice buckets and guard them from potentially thirsty baboons.. Anyone who has read my previous post on proposals will know that Donki also has to be supervised!
Andre planned this special event in fine detail and managed to keep it all a secret too, including getting his future father-in-laws permission prior to the day!
Despite being a little apprehensive about the horse riding thing, and a close encounter of the reptilian kind, Almari did fabulously and all nerves were banished by the surprise of Sparkling Krone on ice in the middle of the forest.
How could she not say YES !!
Thank you Almari and Andre for sharing this wonderful day with us! The Horse About Team wishes you much happiness in your future life together and we look forward to seeing you back again soon!
And a big thank you to Sally for being caretaker of bubbles, secret photographer and horse helper in the forest!
I trust you're well.
Just wanted to say a big Thank You to you, John and your son.
We had a lovely time horse riding with the entire family. Baby Mikayla just loved it. She couldn't stop talking about it & slept all through the night after the horse ride:-) We were all so amazed how well she did and really enjoyed herself, we even did the 1.5 hour trail cos she told John she wanted to ride longer:-)
We really thank you guys for your patience as well throughout, we had an amazing time. We cannot explain the peace & tranquility we experience in the trail. It really is beautiful.
We will definitely return some time in the future.
Thanks again for everything. All the best.
