Yesterday I received the nicest E-mail from Esther. She told me that she enjoyed reading my blog and I wrote her back telling her what a great honor it was for me to meet her! As I always do.. I seized the opportunity to ask her a few questions so that I could share the experience with you.
Esther started riding when she was 16 years old. She rode in a fair in Seville and was hooked. From there she rode in exhibitions and shows. Now she compeats and teaches others how to ride. Here are a few pictures of Esther.
She rides in a show entitled Equus Noster. Equus Noster means "Our Horse" in Latin.
It told the history of Spain on horseback. (http://www.equusnoster.com/inicio.html)
The show link video is:
The Spanish Association she is affiliated with is called Monta Amazona. This is the web address. Only a small part of it is written in English.. but the pictures alone were more than worth taking a peek! Look closely and you will again see Ms. Otero!

Quote from Esther:
The horses are Spanish (PRE) Anglo-Arab, English (PSI), anglohispanoarabe, Lusitanian (PRL) Hanoverian .... All trot, gallop, canter, and have good walk.
All are tame and do dressage.
Other Spanish dressage horses have (DOMA VAQUERA Y ALTA ESCUELA).
I do not know how to explain in English.
The horse in the picture is HISPANOARABE
Here is another video of Esther you might enjoy!
