My time in the mountains exceeded my expectations and despite many
wonderful experiences riding over the years I will remember this one
very fondly. The quality of the horses I was given to ride and the care
taken on each trip to suit my level of riding and my condition on the
day ensured a wonderful holiday.
Everyone I met along the way, whether it be Ali*s friendly greeting
at the airport, Lara*s banter along the trail or your smile at the end
of hard days riding were lovely.
I have so many great memories of the days on the mountains I sometimes
prefer to imagine myself back there again. To ride above the tree line
and be engrossed by the smell of thyme as the horses tread their way
through a natural herb garden is an image that will say with me.
Equally, being able to make out the coast of Africa in the distance or
to trust my horse on a steep descent and feel the satisfaction and bond
when we reached the bottom are also wonderful experiences I will
The accommodation you provided was also fabulous. I wish I lived and
ate that well all the time! Anne was lovely and the views over the town
provided a great way to relax after a day in the saddle.
I sincerely hope to come back and visit you again one day, this time
bringing my young daughters. I am confident that they would enjoy the
experience and there is plenty of country around that would suit their
level of riding ability.
Until then, muchas gracias and I hope to return soon.
