Catalan Coastal Trails - Spain

Mediterranean Trail

4 star rating   24 September 2021

Alison who has been on 10 In The Saddle rides. Catalan Costal Trail - adventurous trip on well trained horses | We were told that there would only be one guide but we still felt that this was insufficient with such a large group of 11 riders.
If the guide had had an accident who would have assisted her and ourselves?
It was difficult to always hear her instructions at the back of the group - it also took a long time to get ready to leave anywhere.
I feel an additional guide or member of staff would have been helpful.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

The riding was only suitable for experienced riders and we had long hours in the saddle.
This might not suit everyone.
We were expected to do a lot of hands on work with the horses - grooming, feeding and tacking up.
