Tsylos Pack Trip

From Tsylos Lodge in British Columbia you can choose to ride from the lodge or to join one of the pack trips that head into the mountains in the summer. I was able to join guests riding from the lodge in September 2014 and had a wonderful week full of great riding, fabulous scenery and knowledgeable guides and hosts.

South Rhodes Trail

The riding style is western and you are given a demonstration on how to mount, turn left, right and stop. After this, you have a short lesson in the outdoor ring so that you get the feel of your horse. You are encouraged to ride two handed on the first day and after that you can ride one handed if you want. It is not necessary to have ridden Western before as long as you are open to learning a new style.

Experience Level

Pirate trail, Spain

The Pirate trail is one of the more challenging Catalan trails due to the amount of hours in the saddle (up to 7 hours in the saddle) and the amount of leading on foot which is required every day for up to 30 minutes. We recommend to wear riding boots that are suitable for walking over tough terrain, with ankle support and non-slip soles.
