Although not big the horses were brillant. I've been on many rides but these horses ability over rough ground is outstanding, sure footed ,willing and very sensible and yet quick when the terrine allows. This was a mixed pace ride, much at walk as you climbed and descended the mountains but then wonderful gallops on the mountain tops where the ground is relatively flat. All this whilst surrounded by amazing scenery.
Saddles also very comfortable and in good condition..

No expectations (other than perhaps challenging!) as it was an exploratory, yet I was still overwhelmed by the magnificent scenery and the nimbleness of those awesome Basotho ponies. The saddles were new and while the seats themselves (provided with seat savers) were probably the most comfortable I’ve experienced on a riding holiday, the absence of flaps gave the girth and stirrup leather buckles a lot of bruising potential. The stirrup leather buckles could obviously be moved up and down which helped. I’ve ridden in McClellans that do have flaps so maybe that’s a possibility. I’m also assuming these will be more comfortable once broken-in. Regardless, I couldn’t have asked for a better mount than Smash - she took incredibly good care of me at all times and was always happy to take the lead and even be the brave one to first cross the big bridge!

Fit, well-behaved, sure footed working horses that were able to carry us up and down fabulous mountainous terrain. The riding was as described prior to departure, with some time spent on foot when necessary. There was plenty of time in the saddle and there was a good mix of pace as appropriate. The riding fully met my expectations. I loved that the horses were barefoot.

My horse was lovely, long paced, very responsive, very comfortable and very sure-footed. Horse maintained condition throughout the 7 days.
Rode in Mcclellan saddles with seat savers so were very comfortable.

The horses were remarkable: tough, resilient, gentle, obedient.
I am not a very good rider and my horse was ideal for me.
The saddles were very comfortable.
