“We have lived in my house in Solis for three generations. My grandparents, my mother, my uncle, my brother and I.. Life is very twisty and maybe I should continue with the livestock ranching that my mom and uncle run, but right now that’s not my idea. The problem with this industry is that you work 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for no reasonable compensation. You’re at another job for the hours you have, and you have a life when you leave. Livestock has its ups and downs because farms are usually close to the houses and when you have old people in the house, you can easily take care of them, as in our case. In contrast, in the countryside there are no holidays, animals have schedules, and crops are planted, harvested, etc. They have time for Even though I don’t have dairy cattle, I’ve always wanted to live in rural areas without detaching myself from what this implies. But that doesn’t mean that if my situation changes tomorrow, I won’t have trouble keeping cattle or looking for a living where I’ll have to eat. I don’t want to stop living in an apartment or living in Corvera because we are in a very good location in the center of everything”.
“We’ve been living together for three generations, and that brings you closer to the perspective of what life is, how it goes, and that everything has an end.. You inherit values such as respect and equality. And it’s true that the Güelos always tell us the same stories, especially things that happened before, but one day they won’t be able to tell us, so we should enjoy them. As we get older we are the same as children, I think that the end of life is very similar to the beginning and that I should look after them as my parents or grandparents took care of me. What I’ve seen since I was born. That doesn’t mean you should stop living your life because of this, but I believe you should do everything possible to take care of and respect them, just as they did to me. Maybe those relationships in a city exist for us. First of all, where do you put three generations in the same apartment?”
therapy horses. “I work at the Asturias Equestrian Therapies Association where the users are people of functional diversity. We adapt to the needs of each user depending on their profile. I started horseback riding in El Asturcón at the age of 5 or 6 years old. It was in full swing around 2001. Then I had a horse at home for a few years and my connection with that world continued.After doing a Pedagogical internship at the Asturian Equestrian Therapies Association, Las Mestas (Gijón), where Horse therapy classes are taught.The user profile is very wide.From two-year-olds to adults over 60, with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, Asperger’s , rare syndromes (Rett, GNAO1, Smith-Magenis…), eating problems, mental health, vision… Therapy with horses is very beneficial in many ways, not only in psychomotric, a very special relationship is established between person and horse. llo and many obstacles collapsed.
“I see that everyone who comes to this therapy is happy, you bond with them very well.. You see how they progress, how they grow, how they develop. So satisfying, indescribable. You see your work reaching people and helping them, there is a reward for it. It’s very rewarding for them and for us.”
“The pandemic was a brutal setback, physically and emotionally, for these functionally diverse people.. This was very remarkable because most of the centers they visited were governed by a residence regime and it took a long time for them to adapt to daily life. It was a risk: There are quite vulnerable people and they couldn’t play that. First of all, it was noticed in socialization. They would usually go to equine therapy, physiotherapy, speech therapy, swimming pool, outings… thousands of things. And suddenly go home and be locked in an apartment or a house with your family.
metal horses. “Even though I don’t practice, I’m a motorcycle enthusiast, I love the adrenaline, being in the races and feeling them. I started to organize quad races because a group of friends who raced in this mode had to travel to Castilla y León. With the help of Moto Club Puch Asturias, I started to organize classic races with various events in the Principality. we created a quad and motocross championship. Then I became a delegate to the Principality of Asturias Motorcycle Federation (FMPA). ‘, that is, I go as a jury. Who controls the technical and sporting part”.
“I am now Technical Director of FMPA and this year I started to be part of the Royal Spanish Motorcycle Federation under the Women’s Commission.. In Asturias we have been holding Spanish championships in almost all possible modalities for several years now. With the work I’ve done during these years, it’s clear that cycling, like everywhere else, is a women’s sport where you have to earn respect and prove your worth. When I started ‘Where is this gouache going?’ they could say. But now that I’ve run a lot of tests for seven years, they respect me, I think I’ve won it very hard.”
“The problem of motorcycling is a little low in Asturias, because there are almost no tracks and fields to train in, and that’s a hindrance as drivers have nowhere to practice.”. They have to move to other communities. Despite that, we currently have three very good drivers. At the hearing, Pablo Suárez Jambrina, who was recently declared world runner-up; Pablo Gutiérrez Solís in motocross and Julio Pando Llana in enduro”.
