lifestyle, travel This is Cozumel

Cozumel's recently opened Equinos equestrian center offers children and adults the chance to giddy up their horses, with classes in dressage, horsemanship, vaulting and more.

It has an impressive stock, including Creoles, a Quarter Horse, a Warmblood and local horses of happily mixed descent.


The center's instructor, Andrea Borchert, has over 30 years' experience in animal therapy and equestrianism and recently moved to the new premises from her previous location in Cozumel.
