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 !!
And a big thank you to Sally for being caretaker of bubbles, secret photographer and horse helper in the forest!
