RIDE ANDES - Upcoming Ecuador tours...

Andean Adventure, 26th January-2nd February 2019, Ecuador


A route that takeshorse riders into the remote Andes in the eastern foothills of the perfectly conical, snow-capped Cotopaxi volcano.

We cross a huge variety of scenic terrain, firstly horseback riding across the patchwork of tiny fields on dirt tracks then riding through luna-like landscapes, picking up speed on vast grassy plains. The pace is varied, including plenty of chances for long canters across rolling hills mixed with a steadier pace over more challenging surfaces.

Contact us for more details.

 

Volcanoes & Vistas, 20th February – 2nd March 2019, Ecuador

Suitable for fit, experienced horse riders. This horse riding tour Includes a visit to the famous Otavalo market, stays at a working ranch, comfortable cottages in a local village & at a remote hamlet on an Inca trading route. 

If you would like to save on a single supplement, we currently have 1 lady looking to share a twin.

Please contact us for more information.

RIDE ANDES - Thinking of riding in Colombia? - here's what some of our guests have said...

Thanks to our guests who take the time to write to  us about their experiences on our trips. 

Here they share some of their thoughts on our new COLOMBIA ride....

 

"What an amazing experience with Ride Andes, to see parts of Colombia by horseback.
Sally took the time before the trip to find out what kind of horse each guest likes to ride, so
we were well matched with horses that suited our confidence and riding ability - there were
even mules to ride if anyone fancied a change... The riding was very varied throughout the trip … we rode through beautiful coffee plantations, chopped our way through dense jungle, climbing quite steeply at times and were rewarded with views of beautiful hidden waterfalls. On some days there were nice long canters and on others we enjoyed riding into the cobbled streets of whichever village we would be staying in that night. Some of our most beautiful haciendas weren't in towns but were hidden in the countryside and could only be reached by horseback - perfect! We had great local guides, fantastic local food, beautiful horses and stunning haciendas ... What made it even better was how we got to mix with local people in their everyday lives,
whether making pottery, playing the local game of tejo, or just riding to their house to share
a cup of ‘aguapanela’. Overall very well organised, authentic and adventurous trip and one I would highly recommend."
 ANNE

“… The first part we experienced the lush vegetation of the coffee plantations … the second part we rode from hacienda to hacienda to monastery to Villa de Leyva, we saw further evidence of the huge variety of scenery and ecosystems Colombia has to offer. Go soon before everyone discovers it! These holidays are 'full on' - expect to ride at least five hours a day on great horses with competent and friendly local guides, expect three good meals - a variety across the spectrum of good wholesome local food, comfortable accommodation and the chance to see somewhere special from the back of a horse. A variety of local 'experiences' are also included - e.g. lunch at a local pottery and the chance to play ‘tejo’ - the local explosive version of boule! We enjoyed Bogota and went on a city tour Sally arranged for us - we found the people in Colombia genuinely friendly and helpful and really enjoyed and brought home with us one local product - the coffee!”    PAUL & ANITA
