  4. Absolutely untrue! I am behind this site, I have a background in social media and internet marketing, and I am local. My husband and I live here full time and we live in Volcancito with dogs, cats, horses and chickens. Here I am in the David Cabalgata with Edilberto Gaitan and Lauretta Bonfiglio. I just hosted the Volcancito Cabalgata on July 16th, you will generally find me riding my bay quarter horse stallion or my appaloosa mare in any cabalgata within 50 miles and often up and down Volcancito Road. Our group of riders is why Big Daddy's now has a horse parking sign. I am not sure which sites you are referring to as being like this one. In general the comment I hear the most is "thank you so much for doing this, is is so needed!"
