I am a previous AQHA gal, but ended up "rescuing" an unregistered Peruvian Gelding. Since "Pony" came into my barn, I have tried to immerse myself as much as possible in this breed and learn as much as I can. I am totally hooked! Beautiful horses and awesome people.

I would like to meet:
All of the wonderful riders and trainers I see at the shows in California! I love watching Kelly Powers, Bonnie Gallegos, Tony Botello, Andrea De Solar, Helen Brown and so many others ride, they make it look so easy and enjoyable. Of course I also like cheering on my equine mentor and trainer Juan Garayar!
Yes I know I have friends living in Paso Robles and she told me that just the other day she could go out just wearing a shirt! Here there is some snow not so much as that most people think when they do think about Austria but where we live it is to close to the Italian border so we have snow (at times a lot but not this year (YET) and warm summers with often rain at night. And as we live near the mountains but also near some lakes we just think we are darn lucky here! I still hope to be able to visite my friends in Paso Robles one time and you never know perhaps one day I contact you and we can drink some tea or coffee?
In the meantime kindest wishes
Hi Denise, It's good to hear from you! I just had my first two final exams today so I'm quite tired! I have another one on Monday so I just have to keep studying. I really like New Zealand so hopefully everything will go as planned :) How are you doing? Enjoying the shows so far? I miss being there!
Thank you so much for visiting Burlon. He really flourishes when people love and visit him.The horse Juan took is that gelding. His name is Hidalgo and his dam, M.M. Zarita, was sired by Burlon. Hidalgo was very bad when we got him. Terrified of everything and I think only Juan could have brought him around. I am so glad to hear Hidalgo is doing well. Juan really liked him.
When you see Juan, ask him to tell you about one of the mares from that rescue, Ramona, and why we thought Juan was going to be calling out Ramona in his sleep forever. Ramona was wild and she was a real pistol but Juan got a halter and lead on her and enough ground manners on her so that the haulers could load her.
I hope to get to Paso Robles and hope we can meet and maybe have lunch or dinner one day.
