This route happend to be my first trail ride ever and I couldn’t have made a better choice.
I got a great horse which carried me safely through this amazing 6 days. I’m fascinated by how the horses on one hand have great strength, endurance and a strong character, but on the other hand are very sensitive, caring and obedient to their rider.
Furthermore, I’m still astonished by the landscape we were riding through. Every day I was fascinated again! Because of the continuously changing landscape, one will never get bored of the sight. Starting with trails next to cherry tress, wide fields and trough little (nearly uninhabited) villages, our way led us further through juniper forests, into the mountains and pine forests, past a necropolis and ended at a wonderful and beautiful place where the river Arlanza has its origin. The most beautiful day was the 5th day, when we rode through the national park “Cañon del Río de los Lobos”.
Last but not least I want to mention that this ride would not have been a that outstanding experience without the great guidance of José with support from Ula.
Thank you very much. I will return next year for another route.
