The horses are mountain horses and so reminded me a little of those we rode in Tibet and Kyrgyzstan. They walk fast, they gallop fast, and they don't bother with trotting or collected canter. They are extraordinarily fit. And pure pleasure to ride, not least as they are so different from the horses we ride in the UK. That contrast is a real joy to experience. I always felt very safe on my horse: it listened, it didn't just do what the horse in front did (when asked), and incredibly steady on its feet over rocks and through water. It took a bit of getting used to, and the guide was very helpful in telling us how best to use the contact.

Vasko, our guide, had an excellent knack of suiting each person to the right horse. He made a few switches during the week which was a great idea.
All of the tack was relatively new and well cared for.
The terrain was varied even though it was all mountain based - woodland tracks, rocky bits, grassland and trails.

The horses were very fit and willing. It was hard going at times, but they seemed to have endless energy. The variety and beauty of the landscape was breath taking. The support arrangements were very good, back up was on hand immediately if needed. The leaders were responsive and took a lot of trouble to ensure that everyone was okay. We got plenty of chances for some long and fast canters / gallops and the rides across the wildflower pastures, through the Beech woods and along the mountain ridges were about as good as it gets. The whole thing exceeded my expectations by a long way.
