Broadly yes. Difficult to know what our expectations were. Greenland is a very remote. Piitaq is relatively inexperienced as a "tour leader" it felt like we were on an early trail ride - this had benefits!

A very good set of horses which are very well trained and can meet a different set of levels.
All horses were groomed every time we went riding and their feet were carefully looked after, which is not so easy when you think Pitaq is doing everything by himself.
The material is in average condition but nevertheless the saddles were super comfortable.
My only comment: watch out with the wires, which has injured one horse (lended by a neighbor), Pitaq should be more careful how he manages the fields with wires.

The horses were a joy and very forward going though a couple of people did have problems with horses spooking. It took a little while to get the feel of these speedy little horses but once I got used to it it was lovely. Our guides Pitek and Pipee were lovely and very helpful, both speaking excellent English.

I felt that the rides could have been longer, 4-5 hours left a lot of down time in the day and in such an isolated place there was not a lot else to occupy us.

The tack was generally not in good condition and there didn't seem to be sufficient knowledge of fitting it correctly. eg saddles often placed too far back or forward, cavasson nosebands buckled up too low down and with the buckle fastening outside the bit (thus potentially interfering with the action).

Some of the horses had been borrowed and their bridles were a bit rough and ready with rope reins and headpieces which I worried could cut into their necks. My horses bit was low in his mouth and I tried to adjust it as much as I could. The bit did rub his mouth. I pointed this out to the guide who changed the bridle. Tack did seem to be used somewhat interchangeably on the borrowed horses.
