Variety of horses and terrain. Paula and her team/partners were fantastic, they tried really hard to match us with the right horse given all our exacting requirements. She was very happy to provide alternatives and swap us round when preferences and (rider) issues required.
Maybe not quite as fast a ride as I had expected but I think that was mainly due to the weather (we were unlucky to have severe winds and some rain storms) which can't be predicted or controlled and was hardly Paula's fault.
The riding style was very different and it took me a while to 'get it' - so different from English riding (and I was told different to Western). But once I'd got it I enjoyed the riding and the saddles were comfortable - great sheepskins. I rode six different horses altogether - nice to try different ones.
So lovely to be able to ride 'in open order' and not single file, walking and cantering side by side along the beach and over the open pastures.

Didn't really know what to expect before I went. With the benefit of hind sight I should have been better prepared for the different style of riding ie should have gone to the physio before I went rather than when I got home! I have ridden Western style previously but somehow this was different (or was it me???)
Couldn't fault how accommodating Paula was when I wasn't able to fully participate. In fact it was rather pleasant having a bit more time to enjoy some of the places we stayed.

Riding South America style takes some adjustment as its quite different from English style but the horses were all well schooled and obedient and the saddles were really comfortable. It was great to eventually master the canter style and interesting to be able to try different horses.
