Jalapeno arrives in Ensenada Mexico

Jalapeno getting ready to come out of the trailer

While we were out at Punta Banda doing our segunda sale, we dropped the trailer off at “Tina Jo’s promise” rescue ranch here in Baja. We were a little worried Jalapeno wouldn’t go in right away, but he was great and walked right in the trailer like an old pro. He had the long ride back to our small stables in Ensenada where he would soon meet his new stable mates.

Jalapeno made himself right at home with the other horses. He is very curious, friendly.  the other horses treated him like he’s been here all along. I’m sure they will do just fine together. Tomorrow we are going to let them all run out in the field to play together.

He did wonderful in the trailer coming home!

We going to take Jalapeno and Cherokee out for his first trail ride this weekend together and see how he does. Dawn from “Tina Jo’s rescue” said he has been ridden and does real well, but is probably what we would call “green broke” we like to make sure all our horses are safe and have plenty of experience before putting riders on them. We are confident he will do just fine going up the mountains overlooking the bay of Ensenada.

We plan on keeping in touch with Dawn at “Tina Jo’s rescue” and adding more horses to our stable as we grow from their great rescue ranch in Maneadero. We will be occasionally taking their horses out for trail rides also just to get them out and more experienced. Come out for a breathtaking view of the Todos Santos Isands or a ride on the beach here in Baja CA.

We have recently been talking about Jalapeno a 3 year old gelding at  “Tina Jo’s Promise ” (http://tinajoespromise.org). We are going to be picking him up on Saturday after our segunda, if he will load in the trailer he will be at our stables on Saturday. He came to Tina Joe’s when he was only a few months old with his mom Amor. He is a dark bay with 2 white socks, black mane and tail. He loves playing with a giant soccer ball they have at the ranch, (we just may have to get one). He is green broke and once he is settled in we plan on taking him for a ride up in the hills overlooking Todos Santos island. He has been ridden at least a dozen times by people up to the mountains in Maneadero and  on the beach in Punta Banda.

We are considering more horses from Tina Joe’s promise, and will be going through them for more great trail riding horses. In the mean time we will begin more training and experience with Jalapeno. I’m sure he will do just fine with our other great trail horses.

We will also be starting horseback riding lessons with the people over at Tina Joe’s Promise. We are going to be having some great times, and hope you will soon join us for not only a trail ride or lessons but an adventure to remember here in Ensenada overlooking the bay where  Carnival, Princess, Celebrity Solstice, and the Golden Princess cruise ships come into our harbor to experience the sights, sounds, sensations and tastes that make Ensenada such a wonderful place to live or visit!

Looking at Tina Joe’s Promise rescue Ranch for horses to add to our stables

There are a lot of good horses here in Ensenada Baja Mexico. We have seen so many. Some horses were too young for our riding stable. We have recently talked to a very nice couple again about their horses over at Tina Joe’s rescue ranch over in Punta Banda (.”, http://cheftinajo.com/tinajospromise/chad-c-meek/ , you can also find them at: http://www.bajareport.com/2012_10_01_archive.html. They have several good riding horses, either in training or already trained. Some of them they informed us won’t be going anywhere and will be with them for the remainder of their lives.

Jalapeno is a 3 yr. old dark bay gelding with a black mane and tail. He is saddle broke, and gentle. We are hoping to get more information about him. Tina Joe’s promise is not far from Manedero also has some other potential horses we are considering for our trail riding here in Ensenada.

We are currently in contact with them, working on possibly getting a couple horses from their place.  The more we talk with Tina Joe and Dawn the more wonderful we find them to be. What great people they are, we really hope this will become a long lasting relationship.
