Geocache Description:


O cavalo/ The horse

 

Desde os prim√≥rdios da coloniza√ß√£o do Ilha do Porto Santo, os cavalos assumiram um papel fundamental na din√Ęmica evolutiva da ilha. Desde o apoio na agricultura, ao transporte de mercadorias at√© ao uso dom√©stico, eram v√°rias as raz√Ķes que proveram a fomenta√ß√£o do cavalo no Porto Santo. J√° mais recentemente, a partir do s√©culo XX, o cavalo assumiu um papel de promo√ß√£o tur√≠stica. Atualmente, s√£o v√°rias as atividades recreativas desempenhadas pelo cavalo. No Porto Santo, o cavalo, a par do burro, s√£o animais louvados e emblem√°ticos, que far√£o para sempre parte da hist√≥ria desta ilha.

      Since the beginning of the colonization of Porto Santo Island, horses have played a fundamental role in the evolutionary dynamics of the island. From support in agriculture, to transporting goods to domestic use, there were several reasons that provided the promotion of the horse in Porto Santo. More recently, from the 20th century onwards, the horse has taken on a role in promoting tourism. Currently, there are several recreational activities performed by the horse. In Porto Santo, the horse, along with the donkey, are praised and emblematic animals, which will forever be part of the history of this island.


 

[A cache/ The cache]

 

Esta cache surge com o intuito de dar a conhecer um local em que √© poss√≠vel observar alguns cavalos e tamb√©m, um curto texto alusivo aos cavalos e √† sua relev√Ęncia na Ilha do Porto Santo. A cache est√° localizada dentro das ru√≠nas. Pedimos aten√ß√£o m√°xima, caso esteja acompanhado por uma crian√ßa ou algum animal de estima√ß√£o, pois pr√≥ximo √† cache, localiza-se um antigo po√ßo, que infelizmente, n√£o est√° sinalizado. √Č fundo e n√£o h√° como sair. Foi acrescentado um ponto adicional, de modo, a sinalizar este po√ßo. Deixo nota tamb√©m, para evitar aproximar-se demasiado dos cavalos. Apesar de serem d√≥ceis, uma aproxima√ß√£o poder√° resultar em stress para o cavalo ou noutra situa√ß√£o menos agrad√°vel.

      This cache appears with the intention of making known a place where it is possible to observe some horses and also, a short text alluding to horses and their relevance in the Island of Porto Santo. The cache is located inside the ruins. We ask for maximum attention, if you are accompanied by a child or a pet, because close to the cache, there is an old well, which unfortunately is not signposted. It's deep and there's no way out. An additional point was added in order to signal this well. I leave a note too, to avoid getting too close to the horses. Despite being docile, an approach could result in stress for the horse or in another less pleasant situation.
