‘This was a bucket list experience for me. Booked on a whim and then wondered if I had done the right thing as I am a 66 year old and hadn’t ridden for quite a few years!
I need not have worried. It was the most wonderful experience and one I will never forget. My horse Doobie was fantastic and the perfect gentleman. Very responsive, forward going and very sure footed. He totally looked after me and is the type of horse I would buy if I ever decided to get back into riding. Alas, he was not for sale! The group I travelled with were a lot of fun and looked after me, as I was the grandma of the group!
The actual trek was stunning. Beautiful scenery that is hard to describe. The ride included plenty of variety including a wonderful gallop one day up a long, sloping hill. I highly recommend this ride but do get riding fit – 6 hours in the saddle is a long time and you definitely need to be prepared.’
