In the Saddle Again

3 Señores Stables

[Once again let me remind you that you can click on any picture that might interest you in order to see a larger version. A later take on this day is also available here.]

The boss, Mauricio Magaña.

And my man, Gaspar, the stable boy.

The old caballero up on “The Sheriff.”

Mariana getting her final briefing.

Adrian, her cousin who is visiting without his boots with him, but ready to go.

I am up and waiting . . .

Okay. We have that out of the way now.

The little Casqueros Chapel rebuilt in the 1600’s on the original site of the city. The city was founded here in the 1530’s, twenty years after Cortés first slaughtered and enslaved the Aztecs.

There are many here, gringo and Mexican, who have never seen it. Rick saw it today.

Rick and Mauricio got on quite well.

Break time . . .

On the home stretch I think Rick was giving his ass a little break.

A little more than three hours.

    […] a bit of trivia concerning Mauricio Magaña, the gentleman with whom Rick and I rode out of 3 Señores stables. He is 33 years old and was born here in San Miguel de Allende to a landed family. A great animal […]
