Went on the 3 Day Trek into the mountains. Holly was an excellent guide and the horses were as laid back and peaceful as the scenery. One of those trips that will last forever, but would love to do it all again.

I would recommend this horse trek if you enjoy amazing scenery, good horses and a really fun and talented horseman as your guide. We loved the stories and the Peel mountain views. It was a blast.
