Volcanoes and Vistas Ride

5 star rating   11 January 2018

The horses and the riding were mainly superb. The only disappointment was in the final leg at Cotopaxi, where the guide wanted only to cover the route at a walking pace. This seemed like a wasted opportunity and was rather frustrating, and in complete contrast to the varied pace of the previous legs. After some repeated suggestions from me, we did have one or two gentle canters on the third day but it didn't live up to the "exhilarating" promise of the itinerary.

(ITS NOTE: Thank you very much for your feedback. Cotopaxi is an area where you can quite often do some lovely flowing canters. We feel that the 'exhilarating' element comes from the incredible environment you are riding in (the volcano, the wide open plains and the remoteness of it all), rather than the speed of the riding. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the pace of this part of the ride, but are pleased that you enjoyed your trip to Ecuador overall).

The riding was extremely enjoyable very tiring, but the views were amazing and the terrain was really varied over the ten days.

Met expectations. Horses were fit and forward going and the tack was in good condition. The itinerary for the riding had to be changed because torrential rain the day before we started made the going dangerous, but despite that we had good riding in a variety of environments.

Unfortunately, I was unwell for part of the trip which did affect my enjoyment of the riding.
