Greg & Jane Teakle

This ride is every thing you imagine it to be. Starting at about 9,000 feet up in the mountains, we were tasked with gathering the cows and calves from their summer pastures and moving them back down off the mountain so they could be better tended to over the winter. We teamed up with keen riders from Israel, Austria, Norway, and the U.S. Our horses were tough and surefooted, well adapted to the altitude and terrain. The level of service from our hosts was first class. The wranglers were friendly and knew their trade, and a warm and friendly atmosphere pervaded for the entire week. The evenings were always full of shenanigans and merriment and, on our trip, a colourful exchange of accents. For me, the highlights were the full days of riding along pine tree ridge lines, across lush valley floors and flowing streams, filling our water bottles up from icy cold springs, descending steep mountain trails and enjoying the novelty of riding in the snow.
This has been our first Globetrotting adventure and I can guarantee it won’t be our last.’
