The trip was phantastic. We were riding totally in the nature with diffferent landscapes. Henna was a great guide and the BBQ was delicious and it was so relaxing to spend some time on the farm. I can definitely recommend this trip.
The ranch hands are mostly women.They were very nice and the trip into the mountains was beautiful.The lunch was a home cooked BBQ. You could also swim in the pool by the side of the house.My only complaint was that II was told not to bring my camera as the trail guide would take pictures during the trip and post them online.She took pictures, but they were never posted online.I would have liked a picture... on the horse... in the hills
This tour was amazing! Janna led the trip and was super helpful and informative. The horses are great as well. You could literally close your eyes and the horses will still guide you. We also did the BBQ, which was all set up and ready to go when we returned. The food was absolutely delicious.
This tour was fantastic. We took the metro out to Peñablanca station and Lisa met us there and took us to the ranch. We were taken on a stunning trail ride through the mountains and returned to a lovely BBQ (even in the winter!) felt very well looked after. Would recommend.
