It was an amazing morning. Every part of it, the horses, the guides, and the view were all perfect. They were all very professional with a sense of humor.

These guys and gals know what they are doing. They take the time to size up the riders and ask questions before assigning a mount. They then place them in an order so the animals get along. Joe our guide was wonderful on our 3...More

1.)I think it's understandable that the guides want participants to understand English. It could be a real problem if they give instructions to someone who can't understand them. Did you offer to translate? 2.)It's also a bit of a stretch to expect a trail riding place to offer helmets. Riding helmets were originally only used by equestrians for jumping fences. To this day, many Western riders take offense to the idea of wearing helmets and so don't even in competitions such as barrel racing. Your picture in a long evening gown would seem to indicate that you are a city dweller. Yes, people in the cities wear helmets to ride their bicycles and even place them on kids riding tricycles. It's different in the country, and you don't have to play on horses in the country if you're not used to it. Try some riding lessons at an equestrian center in a suburb back home first. I mean this seriously, as it can be a bit of a crash course to suddenly put yourself or a child on a horse when they've never even as much as petted one before.

We were standby. As per the lady in the lodge suggested, we went down to the corral and waited until the others got on their horses ( about 15-30 min) and were told immediately we were ok to ride.

We did the afternoon yesterday and it was fine. Not too hot at all. And no riding experience here and it was fine as well.
