A Horse Whisperer in Costa Rica

Hello again! It's been quite some time since I posted any entries.  Hope to add new updates from my trips soon!  From a trip to Costa Rica early this year, I had the fantastic opportunity to experience such a small, compact country that is focused on sustainable eco-tourism. 

One such encounter was a horse whisperer, Alexander Cravajal with a horse farm in Costa Rica where he rises to the challenge each time he is presented with a horse that had been abused and must be rehabilitated. He exhibits his rehabilitated horses through performances to groups which provide funding to continue his work. Horses are his passion! Naturally, his love of horses is also shared by family and his young granddaughter.
