The horses were well looked after and the guides were very keen on correctly tacking up and did regular checks. Where possible we did some nice gallops however most of the trip was in walk due to the nature of the terrain. We regularly had to dismount and walk, which for me was a perfect balance between riding and some ‘exercise’, it was nice to get out of the saddle regularly. Some people did struggle a bit with the altitude and were not very fit, which made it difficult for them to climb uphill but the pace was adjusted so everybody eventually made it.

This was called the Great Trek; and it really was. Quite demanding, we rode for 2,000 to 3,600 metres. The terrain was sometimes steep and vertiginous, it was sometimes rocky and rough. The distances were demanding and added up to 500km. Helene Guilerm was a superb guide. The horses were tough and beautifully looked after. The absence of mobile signal and internet signal in the mountains meant this was a real get away.

The horses are all sure-footed, easy to handle & good natured despite living as a herd.

The tack is worn but perfectly comfortable.

if i may say, this was the best trip i ever head and i am well traveled.

The guide Hellen is a lovely lady with horses were fantastic, very well trained and behaved ponies. i only regret i could not do it for longer.
Kyrgyzstan is such a stunning country. i could not recommend this trip enough.
i am even considering of going back there again.
