“What an amazing experience with Ride Andes, to see parts of Colombia by horseback… The riding was very var-ied: 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 … What made it even better was how we got to mix with local people in their everyday lives. Overall very well organised, authentic and adventurous trip and one I would highly recommend.”
