Cowboy style, well 'educated' horses, small team, very nice guide who adapts your trek to your level! Great experience.

My 10 year old daughter and I had a great ride with Debs and her lovely helper Kelly. We rode right up into the hills above Cardrona, almost up to the snow line. Debs had a lot of tips for me as I don't ride often, and she had lots of info about the local flora and fauna. Catherine got to do a lot of cantering which she loved. Peter from Denmark (see below) would do well to read and study horse behaviour and it might show him why the horses are ridden in single file, and also for his own safety. Altogether a superb afternoon out with lovely people and horses, and at a great price too. Thanks girls and horses.

Friendly staff, but boring single-filed horses that only want to stay in the same order in the line.

Nice horses & scenery. Hard to talk to friends in single file though.
