I have just got back from 7 weeks in Ecuador, I had an incredible time as it is such a beautiful country. The highlight of my trip was without a doubt my week riding in the Cotopaxi National Park, with Sally and Ride Andes. I did the Cotopaxi Adventure ride high up in the Andes, the scenery was stunning and the terrain so varied. Sally's horses are so well behaved yet forward going, they are fit, healthy, well trained and well fed (unlike a lot of the locally owned horses) and above all an absolute pleasure to ride, making the whole experience a very enjoyable one. I cannot explain in words how beautiful the scenery was. From Cotopaxi to the 'luna like' open plains before it, the Lagoons and surrounding open moorland, it was just fantastic! All the Haciendas we stayed in were very comfortable, had amazing views, great food and most importantly had friendly staff. The week ran smoothly and safely, Sally had thought of everything. We had delicious picnic lunches every day, lovely warm ponchos on each saddle if it was cold or wet and the horses had correctly fitting tack.
Overall it was an amazing week of riding on fit, healthy horses in stunning scenery and great accommodation and I would recommend Ride Andes to everyone of any riding ability with a love of Horses, Scenery and the Great Outdoors.
