Barichara Ride - Colombia

Barichara Ride

5 star rating   3 October 2019

The riding was challenging, with some very long days in the saddle and some tough terrain. However, the horses were amazing, strong and resilient, in keeping with In The Saddle's ethos. Spare horses travel loose at times, which can lead to some issues but are essential for keeping them all fit.

The horses were all very fit and well cared for. The terrain was hilly, if not mountainous, with a few very steep sections that were easily handled by the horses. We did a fair amount of trotting and cantering up and down hills. Overall the pace of the riding met my expectations as described.

There were more road rides than expected. The rides on the roads were not very assuring all the times. Most of the riders, including myself, we care as priority the well being of the horses. Some of the rides through the trip were quite challenging on the horses, which sometimes was a concern. Maybe is worth considering dividing the difficult rides in stages, not to add some much pressure on the horses. Also, there were quite a few injuries because of the equipment, which probably is normal in such demanding environment, but the type of the injuries (withers).
