Highland Expeditions - Iceland

Kjölur - North to South

5 star rating   3 August 2019

Karen Bolette (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Kjölur - North to South | My Neutral rating by no means applies to the horses – but for the equipment. It was uncommonly dirty when we took it over, but we handed it back with freshly polished saddles. I am well aware that after just half a day's ride it is dirty due to dust etc, but it was not nice to take over both saddle and saddlebag in the condition it was in.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

Some of the items on the package list were completely redundant. For example, we had NOTHING to use rubber boots for. And the information that most Icelanders ride in long rubber boots is pure gossip. They ride in jodphurs. And when we told them what info we had been given, they shook their heads.
