Barichara Ride - Colombia

Barichara Ride (short)

4 star rating   2 October 2019

Sarah who has been on 15 In The Saddle rides. Colombia Barichara Ride - Beautiful country and lovely, willing horses | Colombia is a beautiful country and this is a great opportunity to see the 'real' countryside away from the tourist trail. The horses were lovely and clearly well loved and cared for. The riding was fun and fast but there are one or two days with a lot of roadwork and one day that was very strenuous for the horses. During the week I rode two horses and enjoyed both of them very much. The scenery really was incredible.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation was very good for this type of holiday and some of it (such as the private hacienda in El Palmar and the guest house in Barichara) was really lovely. We thought going straight to Villa de Leyva from the airport would be nicer than a night in Bogota, as the smaller town is beautiful and we had a great lunch there.

The food was a bit repetitive and we would have loved to try a bit more variety in Colombian food, but it was always plentiful and tasty.
