Our trek horses are seasoned veterans. Many of them have been doing these treks for more than 10 years and are accustomed to riders of all ages, levels of ability and experience. The information we ask you to supply prior to your trek is to help us match you with the right horse. For example, some horses are more sensitive to weight or need a more experienced rider. Don’t forget to give your horse lots of pats during and after the trek!
