Mexico Trip Report
A couple of weeks we got back from a three week trip to Mexico and it has taken me some time to put together a “Trip Report” – it was just all a bit overwhelming. I have travelled the world and have been to many countries inspecting equestrian trips, but seldom have I experienced such a variety of landscapes and cultures as on this trip.

We visited the Mexican states of Jalisco, Guanajuato, Hidalgo, Mexico DF and Chiapas.  The catalyst for the trip was the “Adventure Tourism Summit” in Chiapas and it turned out to be one of our best trips yet. We came home with two brand new trips that will be an excellent addition to our existing programs and of course we visited with our friends and partners of the existing rides..

Trails of the Tsaatan Nomads
Hovsgol, Mongolia
16 days / 15 nights, regular rate $2,460
A trip deep into Mongolia's wilderness is not a journey as any other. It is a wide open country, largely untouched by tourism once you are outside of the centers. Mongolia offers a true appeal to those looking for a unique culture, immense rough landscapes and untouched nature. The people outside of the towns are still semi-nomadig, moving their herds with the seasons, as they have done for centuries. Half of the Mongolian population is Rural dealing with herds that represent the country's economy base. It is the homeland of Genghis Khan and its people have kept close contact to its unique culture and heritage.

Four exhilarating days driving cattl...

Adventrure Travel World Summit in Chiaps
Presidente Calderon opening the Adventure Travel Summit in San Cristobal
Last month more than 600 travel professionals, representing some 50 countries, gathered in San Cristobal de las Casas, a quaint colonial-era mountain town in the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico for the Adventure Travel industry’s most important annual event, the Adventure Travel World Summit. It was opened by Mexico's Presiden Calderon. Many people embarked on trips prior to the event to journey beyond the headlines and discover the real Mexico. While exploring all the adventure opportunities that Mexico has to offer, what emerged was an abundance of tweets, news articles, blog posts and Facebook postings raving about Mexico. Hidden Trails participated in the Summit and took part of some of the equestrian pre-summit trips. Consequently I am happy to inform you that we are working on putting together a brand new adventure riding holiday in Chiapas .. the most southern state of Mexico. It is going to be a fantastic ride from the mountains, through the jungle all the way to the pristine beaches of the coast. Stay tuned for updates on this trip.

What are these riding trips all about?
They are about galloping on endless beaches, forging rivers, cantering through forests, trotting along age-old trails, gazing at beautiful vistas, and encountering foreign cultures. Most of all, these trips are about getting away from the cycle of work and never enough free time. Escape from the rituals, which long ago froze our nights and days into little more then routine, because deep inside we all feel the longing of the nomads, whose lives we lived thousands of years ago.
Leave your stressful life behind and explore a foreign place away from the tourist rush and off the beaten path - on Hidden Trails.

You will see the “real” country, its hinterland and meet the local inhabitants. The love for horses has no boundaries, but possesses a common language we all speak and understand.
