Riding Experience
This trip is meant for any skill level. Whether you are a first time rider or a seasoned and experienced rider, you have the ability to customize your own experience! Build from our menu of options and ride for as long and hard as you like or as calm and tranquil as you like. If you have interest in horses and want to sharpen up your skills, you can take private riding lessons and learn all about trail riding and horsemanship with an experienced and knowledgeable guide. We will pair groups only with similar experience levels so as to give the best possible experience to all levels of riders!
A standard 4-7 hours per day will be spent on trail, though people wishing to spend less tune riding, or a day or two doing other activities such as hiking or relaxing, will have that option.

There are some trails we use where it is necessary to hike over rocky terrain, either to avoid undue risk or to enjoy a vista that cannot be ridden to. For most people this is a refreshing change that allows them to stretch their legs. We recommend that you bring or wear comfortable footwear that you can hike for a kilometer or two in.

Horses
The horses have been chosen for their endurance, spirit, and reliability in the mountains. Our horses are trained western style (neck-reining), but most English trained riders adapt very quickly to this style of riding with a bit of instruction and advice! Most horses will be fitted with western style saddles but those with a distinct preference for English riding may be accommodated.
