‘Well, what a week! I had been looking forward to this ride for almost a year and have probably bored my friends silly with the excitement I had leading up to it. It did not disappoint. The staff, especially our guides for the week, Nat and Shawn, were fantastic. Nat and Shawn excelled at looking after our group of ten riders and horses, and their knowledge of the areas we rode through was fantastic. I tried some native berries, was informed about native flora and experienced some of the most beautiful countryside in the world. I was matched to the best horse I could imagine. His name was Cruise and what a wonderful boy he was. I felt completely at ease riding him for the five days. One word of advice: beware the sand flies and cover up everything. But in all honesty, if I could do it all again I would not hesitate – sandflies and all.’
