As we head towards the end of July, the season has picked up considerably here at Castellare di Tonda. The stables are closed today allowing the horses a well deserved day off.
We have had a busy spring season, and now most of the trail horses will only do a couple of short rides a day due to the heat. We start out long rides again at the end of August when the weather is cooler again. We have a busy second half of the year, with a full workshop for Christiane Slawik, with an interesting bunch of people hailing – literally, from all over the world.
We have a new horse in the stables. Brownie, a gentle natured 15.3 hh quarter horse gelding. He is a sweet and handsome boy, comfortable to ride, and easy going with the other horses. Il try and get some nice pics of him to put up soon.
For now, a nice pic to end this post of the pretty sunflowers currently in bloom near Peccioli. So very summery!
