Hi Tom - currently at Quito airport waiting for my journey home. Just wanted to let you know that the riding was FANTASTIC and the Galapagos trip was WONDERFUL!
It was all a highlight really! The riding week was fantastic in terms of the setting / organisation/ quality of leadership / quality of horses and group composition.
And ditto in relation to the Galapagos Islands trip!
Sally was an excellent and knowledgeable guide - as was Martha on the Angelito.
