We were 3 girlfriends travelling, and it was arranged that we could sleep in the same hotel room every day, except when we slept in a tent (completely understandable!), but it was absolutely fantastic service that we were very excited about!

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

It is probably more of a constructive criticism of the ride itself. They are horses that are ridden in a different way than we do here in the Nordics, and it would have been nice to know some basics of how their horses should be ridden. They mostly had to be ridden with the reins, and not really any legwork, and otherwise it was the North Macedonian shout that got the horses going. Of course we quickly found out during day 2-3. We were given really "free rein" on the ride and were asked to work with the horses, and it was great with the freedom, but if you had known a little more about the way their horses were schooled, you could have had an even better start to the ride. 🙂
