Before I went to Time & Space, I didn’t really know what to expect. I was worried I might not fit in, that I might feel lonely or homesick… However, I soon came to realize that my concerns had been completely unnecessary. This was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. Clare and Chico were very friendly and welcoming and I had lots of fun with the other volunteers. Atajate was a cute and quiet little village where people were friendly and the little group of old men always sitting under the orange trees in the afternoon would always greet you with smiles.Read More
I found working at the campo very relaxing, even though the tasks were sometimes physically demanding. But there was never any rush and it gave a certain amount of satisfaction to see the results after a day of digging sand, carrying rocks or cutting bushes.
For me, the method of horsemanship used at Time & Space was new, and I found it very interesting to see the results of the work we were doing with the horses. All horses have their different personalities and need to work on different things, so there were a lot of different options.
Unfortunately, my time in Spain was cut short due to the outbreak of Corona virus, and I didn’t get the chance to develop as much as I would have liked to with my project horse…
However, I am very grateful for the wonderful time I got to spend in Atajate and the friends I made there. I really hope I will be able to return in the future!
