Photo Shoot with a Mule
I went on a short horseback-riding trip with my friend Meret, who wanted to try out a brand-new, handmade saddle pad for her mule. I volunteered to take some pictures but had to realize soon that I was contending with aggravating circumstances: I had to switch lenses during heavy winds and had to hold on to my own horse, while looking for the right angle on slippery ground. Luckily my horse was very well behaved and – given a little more practice – might turn into the perfect companion for horsetrekking photo shoots.
For those of you who would like to explore our region on horseback, check out Meret’s website at locurachile.com, where she and her husband offer wonderful horsetrekking trips that range from day trips to 3-week ventures. Having been on numerous outings with them I cannot think of a better place to start your Chilean horseback riding adventure.
