Miyak Tribe Trail - North Macedonia

Miyak Tribe Trail

5 star rating   25 June 2023

Imogen (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Brilliant & intense | Riding was fast & intense & exceeded expectations. Matched w a lovely, comfortable elderly pony who didn’t have a gallop gear so missed out on the rush of the races so may have undersold my riding capabilities (1:20m show jumper riding 2 horses a day) but still really loved the whole holiday. Riding in western saddles was SO comfortable I’ll never do an English saddle ride again.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Accommodations a mixed bag - night 3 was terrible ie/ shower that made a bath tub of whole bathroom & dirty room but camping was really well done. Night 2 was the best of all accommodations.

Food was plentiful & good but the timing was challenging - day 1 dinner was 9:30/10pm & never before 8:30 on any nights. Lunch was sometimes about 5pm. With jet lag & early starts I could have skipped dinner completely (did one night) but felt I would miss out on the group
