This was an absolutely amazing experience. The guides took great care of us even though we where not properly prepared for a trip so high up in the mountains. The family who own the ranch welcomed us with open arms and prepared good local good for us, both for breakfast and lunch. The horseback riding itself went really smooth even though neither of us rode a horse before. The guides did a great job in teaching us how to ride and the horses were very well behaved. Strongly recommend this trip for anyone who wants to go horseback riding! 10/10
