Pyrenean Adventures - Spain

Fresh & Saltwater Trail

5 star rating   8 September 2019

Stephanie (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) A fabulous 5 days of stunning scenery, great food and great riding | The riding was really good. My horse (Flash) was absolutely awesome. I would have taken him home if I could. I had a little cry when I left him.
The only issue I had was with the tack. My stirrups repeatedly came off. Losing one on a walking phase of the ride. Meaning spending the rest of the day stirrupless. Then the stirrups came away at other random times, particularly during faster sections of the ride.
The bridle was also in an awful state. It also came off during the ride.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The food was extremely good. I think the website doesn't do it justice. The picnics are spectacular and so well thought out. And the evening meals provided by the hostels/hotels were also to an extremely high standard.
I know the riding is a focus but I was so surprised with the quality of the food.
