Sure the horses will be groomed and grained before we had to the arena and learn on the ground or riding. There will be a big siesta from 12-3pm before we start the afternoon activities and work in the project that we have had planned together (like: built toys for horses, renovate a place, built furniture, do generall farmwork etc.). Dinner will be prepared by the evening. And we love to spend our evening watching educational videos or just listening to the jungle sound.
