We are met each evening by the support vehicle and are always in contact with the group via radio. The vehicle brings food and water for riders and horses, wood fuel for camping.

We use Chilean saddles (called Avios), with sheep wool and English stirrups. The Chilean saddle has been designed especially for long trips. Its wooden mount, reinforced with iron, is cushioned with “chiporro” and protected with leather.
Each horse carries a saddle bag, so you don’t need to take a backpack (absolutely discouraged).

Chilean horses may be short in height, but are very strong and stable for mountain & desert riding!
