We learned about Windcross on a previous trip but had to wait due to overbooking of our time. Now we regret that choice. We have three very curious and intense children. To be honest, we were afraid about how they would do in this environment. The moment we watched Ms Lucia take the hand of our youngest I knew we were in good hands. Her calmness and love of those majestic animals seemed to transfer right thru that hand holding. We watched as the children touched, groomed and eventually rode on these wonderful animals that seemed to know a kindred spirit. We spent 30 days and visited six National Parks. These hours spent at Windcross were our most peaceful and connecting. We have since shared with everyone we know heading that way. We will be back and our youngest still remembers how to calm his pony brain as he was taught. :)
