I booked this tour as a very last minute thing when I found myself alone with nothing to do on the Monday. I wasnt sure whether anyone would even get back to me as I sent my email the day before (Sunday) but got a response straight away with all the details.
Begga picked me up first thing and was delightful from the first moment. I had inquired about a spa trip after riding which was mentioned on the website, and she arranged everything for me that morning.
I was the only person to be riding that morning. I couldn't believe she would give up her Monday morning for only one person, but she was so lovely and it was clear from the way she spoke she just loves riding and sharing her beautiful horses with other people.
She took me through everything so I wasn't afraid (I have rarely ridden before). The horses are so incredibly friendly, and fantastic for a novice like me.
It was raining and quite a dull day but let's face it this is Iceland so it didn't matter one bit. The landscape is truly wonderful whatever the weather, and what a way to see it.
After the ride and a chat Begga took me to the spa where I got to relax all afternoon. This part is optional but i would definitely recommend it.
All in all I had a fantastic day, with great hospitality, wonderful conversation and gorgeous horses. Begga told me she felt she was incredibly privileged to do what she does, but the pleasure was all mine.
