Wild Sicily Trail

5 star rating   26 September 2020

Jill who has been on 13 In The Saddle rides. Wonderful- just the break I needed | This was the first exploratory ride that I have done with In The saddle, so was not sure what to expect, but I loved it! The horses were amazing, you have to admire how tough and fit they were and although we covered over 200km they did not lose any condition at all. Alex was really knowledgeable about the areas we were riding through and the pace was just right. I had wondered if I was going to be fit enough to ride for up to 8 hours a day, I usually get bored after 6, but I found it fairly easy, although going downhill for 2 1/2 hours on one day did make my knees ache!

We stayed in different hotels each night, some nicer than others but always very welcoming and the food was excellent, even if I can’t actually eat that much food in a week.

Travelling in these COVID time is not easy, but made easier by the advice and help given by Becky. I hope that you take this ride onto the In The Saddle books as I think lots of people will enjoy it, including some of my friends who sound really interested.
