Celebrating halloween in Spain

Halloween is celebrated in Spain, but in a different form. It is know as the "Day of the Dead," or "El Dia de los Muertos." It is a three day event beginning on the night of October 31 and ending on November 2, in which family members commemorate their loved ones whom have passed. It is believed that the dead return home to be with their families. Families sometimes make an alter at home as a way to reminisce. It is also common to visit the grave sites and both picnic and decorate.

Anyone with experience of good horsemanship wanting to help out with lovely nearly rising 4 mare? I'm working her alone and could do with someone who has similar methodology. I live in mountain village,no other female equestrians at all, also all horse/mule owners are Spanish,and am finding it rather challenging to say the least with no one to chew things over with. The locals' solution to horsey 'challenges' is to beat the living daylights out of it with a stick or whatever comes to hand. I'd really appreciate being able to talk about horseworld in English. Can you help?
