Riding level

Our horses are easy to ride. They are in great shape and they go anywhere. They are able to gallop long distances whilst on the plane and to jump up to the mountains. Given the length of our daily journeys, riders must be capable to stay on the horse for long hours, at different and quick speeds, on varied terrain. Riders must feel at ease walking, trotting and galloping and must be in good shape.
