Hello Steemit! Greetings from Jerez, Spain!

My name is Tara. I am a 27 year old woman from Norway currently living in Jerez, Andalusia, Spain. I came her last October with my two horses and my rescue dog Luna. We packed up everything we had and I drove myself with a full car and a trailer with two horses, through six countries to get here. It was a crazy ride, but we made it.

I came to Spain to develop myself as a rider and trainer, and I plan to be here for a total of six months. I have my own business, working as a horse trainer, and every spring - summer - fall - I travel around Norway teaching clinics and helping people with their horses. I belive that any horse can be trained - no matter how wild or dangerous it is - and life have yet to show me wrong.

I am living with my dog Luna in a little apartment in the old part of Jerez. The town is pretty cool, many old buildings and cathedrals and lot of great Spanish restaurants. It is a poor town for sure, but still alive, friendly and welcoming. We live right next to that cathedral you see there. And the best part, Jerez is only a 20 min car ride away from the cost. Luckily for Luna, during the winter the beaches are very animal friendly, and lots of people go there with their dogs.

My horses are staying at the stable of Alfonso Lopez De Carrizosa. He is a legend trainer here in Spain, a master in the Spanish art of riding called Doma Vaquera. He is a real Spanish cowboy and an amazing rider. I came all this way to have him as my trainer, and both me and my horses are learning a lot, not just about horses and training, but also about life.

Welcome to Steemit! Please follow me :)

Very nice intro! Welcome and enjoy @taraorlin

Welcome to steemit community, insight, experience and knowledge banayak once here we live just how to take and learn it and you also can share anything interesting to be published in this steemit, salam know from me @teukukhaidir. thank you

Thanks for the tips! Where are you from?

Your journey is very inspiring Tara! Horses and Travel, you are living quite a beautiful dream! I salute your success. What an insane route to travel with 2 horses and all your belongings. Luckily your furry friends are clearly good companions. Tell me more about how your furry friends enjoy Andalusia, does the climate suit them better, and do they like the food? It would be lovely for you to write more frequently about your traveling through the world and the places you've been; creative people must often travel (through books or the world) to truly satisfy their curiosities. Thanks so much for posting the photos and the map route, it's so inspiring to see people doing such amazing things and I feel emboldened in my own endeavors just witnessing yours.

Thank you very much. Yeah it was pretty insane I guess, but I thought, why not? I will post more about my travels for sure! My horses did use a little time to adapt and the food here is different, I think they miss green grass and normal hay, here they use alfalfa and oats mostly. But it is getting greener here! Think spring will be beautiful here!

Great, thanks! :) I am exited to get started!

That's really interesting, reminds me of a TV series from childhood. Followed you. How long will you stay there? how about photo-shooting when I finally get to Spain?

Thank you, I will stay here for a few months more I think. Are you a photographer?

Yes, half-hobby, half-profession

Hello! Welcome :-) have fun: :-)

Hello! Thanks for that! :)

Wow! What a hell of a ride!
How long did it take you and how did you manage your horses during the stopovers? It´s cool that you took your animal friends with you, instead of leaving them in Norway and flying to Spain ;-)

What made you go to Spain? I mean it´s fair to say, that the economy is a bit better in Norway isn´t it?

Welcome to Steemit!

Followed and greetings from Hamburg ;-)

Hey! It was suppose to take 4 days but I had trouble with my trailer in France so it took us 11 days in total! My horses slept in horse hotels on the way :) I came to Spain to enjoy warmer weather and to develop myself as a rider and trainer. Thank you! I actually lived in Dusseldorf for three years when I was a kid! Great country!

Thank you @taqia :)

A fascinating record of an adventure by a determined person! I look forward to your future updates.

Thank you for that! :)

Hei Tara!
Velkommen Steemit! Kan jeg komme med et lite tips? Sleng på taggen "Norway" på innlegget her, da blir det lettere å komme i kontakt med andre nordmenn, om du ønsker det da :)
