‘Glenorchy was my second Globetrotting ride and to be honest, I was worried it wouldn’t live up to my high expectations after my first amazing experience! Now, in hindsight, I can see I had nothing to worry about. When we arrived I was assigned Snoopy, a beautiful big grey. He was cool, calm, collected and never put a foot wrong.
The riding was phenomenal – beautiful scenery, challenging cliff edges, mesmerising glacial rivers and glacier covered mountains. The guides looked after us very well, making sure we were comfortable, enjoying the experience and learning something along the way. They made sure to point out any film locations (Lord of the Rings, Prince Caspian, Mission Impossible) and gave everyone the chance to ride to the top of their ability and desires – some rode slow and steady, while others were hoon heads.
I went on this ride with one friend; however, by the end, I would say our group were all friends with a shared passion for travel and horses. It’s hard to get back into the real world after a great week like this, but I’m getting through by pondering what my next ride will be…’
