When I was planning my trip to Mull, I knew I wanted to ride so I booked a place to stay in Gruline very near Killiechronan Pony Trekking. So I booked two rides with Liz in advance - the mountain ride and the beach ride. Both were so good that I did a third, longer ride too!
Jean, who took me out, was calm, kind warm and friendly, utterly devoted to the ponies and always profoundly aware of my comfort and safety. All you could wish for in a trekking guide, in fact!
The ponies were healthy, happy, fit, well-cared for, calm and balanced. Above all I felt safe. I'm a pretty experienced rider and I felt completely in safe hoofs.
The wildlife-watching from horseback was spectacular - we saw eagles and deer at close range - creatures don't run away from you so much when you're on four legs. Though it has to be said that as we galloped through the surf, the flounders on the bottom of the loch zoomed away pretty sharpish when Smokey's hoofs pounded down.
I can't even begin to tell you how good I felt out riding with Jean at Killiechronan.
Thank you so much, Jean, I hope one day soon I can come back. After the ghastly 18 months I've had, you and Smokey made me feel alive again!
