Q: Where do I keep my luggage that I won´t need during my trek while I am riding in the park?
A: The majority of the hotels and hostels will store luggage for their guests who are staying with them prior to and after their travels in the park. If not, we will happily store your luggage securely in our office until the end of your program.
Q: What equipment is included in this program? Do I need to bring any of my own riding gear?
A: This program includes all the necessary gear and tack needed for this 2 day ride and expedition. Professional riding helmets, leather chaps, leather gloves, saddle, saddle bags, & dry bags are all included. Prior to beginning your first day´s itinerary, you will stop by our office along with your guide to be fitted comfortably for your gear.
Q: Do you need to be an experienced rider to do this excursion?
A: We consider this ride a great 2 day program for young and beginner riders. The rides are slow with some gentle slow-trotting and your guide will encourage you to go at your pace that you feel most comfortable. The trails are remote and undisturbed and there are portions of the trail where you will ride along cliffs and rocks, peat & mossy areas, and through rivers and high waters. Given the trail conditions, it is still considered a ride that young and beginner riders will enjoy but it is important that the riders are aware of these details.
