Miyak Tribe Trail - North Macedonia

Miyak Tribe Trail

5 star rating   31 July 2022

Sarah who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Miyak Tribe trail - probably my favourite trail so far | The horses were incredible - very sure-footed even on rocks and ready to canter uphill. They were never scared even when we occasionally met trucks or people cutting trees. There are frequent stops to adjust the girths to prevent injuries, and every horse ischecked during lunch breaks and at the end of the day. Vasco took time asking us individually about our riding experience and expectations to match us with our horses. This really makes a difference. Lastly, I was so impressed by the number of gallops we had even in mountain terrain! The horses were totally trustworthy - they knew the path, knew when they were allowed to overtake in canter, where the race stops, and when to stand in a line! The ride to the sunrise was truly magical. It is not for everyone though - it is quite tough, with very long days in the saddle and short nights.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Nothing to complain about! A lot of mezzes to share between everyone, so easy to find something you like. The lunch breaks were varied and very well presented. The tents were the most cosy I have ever seen, with some fur on the floor and very warn sleeping bags. Hotels were very nice too.
