This trip was amazing. My husband, who has only ridden a few times was cantering the first day and by the fourth day was a pro. I ride everyday at home and had a blast. The ride was beautiful and every day was different. The horses were perfect and Astrid made sure everyone had a horse that suited their ability.
There is not a lot of options once you leave Quito in terms of hotels. There is no Best Western or Holiday Inn. So the accomodations are rustic. But we loved it. Our hosts were amzaing. We stayed in a 350 farm house, a B&B type house and a tree house in the Cloud Forest.
The food was great and the menu was accomodating assuming you let them know in advance. Like I said, there is no mega mart once you are out on the trail, everything has to be packed in advance.
Everything from getting picked up to the 5 days on the trail to getting back to Quito was handled for us.
If you want to see the country and the people of Ecuador and don't mind a little dirt, this was one of the best trips we have taken and we have been to a lot of amazing places.
