*Cancellation policy
To ensure that we have a successful day of horseriding, we need to prepare the horses a few hours before the trekking. To do this we need to know the exact number of riders. If you are unable to attend, or wish to bring a friend at the last moment, please let us know at least a day before the chosen time. For whatever reason 48 hours notice is required to cancel bookings. After that, no refunds of deposit. Cancellation need to made by email or telephone,
