As i said, words cant describe how amazing this experience was. I admit, as a solo female traveler, I had my doubts about signing up for this and going alone. But, after reading the reviews here on tripadvisor, especially the review of another solo female traveler, I decided to go. I made the best decision of my trip. I cant tell you in words how beautiful it was, i can only strongly advise you to experience it for yourself.

Scheduling was a breeze and they were able to accommodate my dietary needs (vegetarian) for lunch. Everyone I met was very pleasant and as a solo female traveler I felt safe the entire time. Gorgeous views and a great way to see the mountains- definitely recommend!

I just returned from a 3-day/2-night horseriding trip (February 10-12), and it was one of the highlights of my trip to Chile. The inscrito horses are a little smaller and not as wide as the horses that we have in our area (western Canada), so even after a number of hours and consecutive days in the saddle I didn’t get muscle sore as I normally would. My horse was very responsive to the reins and easy to ride, and the many ascents and descents gave no trouble.. The scenery was spectacular at every turn as we made our way further into the mountains. My guide did not speak English, so it was a total immersion experience, which I enjoyed. During our two nights of camping he did all the work (cooking, cleaning dishes, etc), so it was full service all the way and allowed me all the free time I wanted to go for walks and relax. I loved the remoteness of the area, as once we started our climb into the mountains we saw no one for three days.

Reviews and Comments IV: Quality Horses

Reviews and Comments IV: Quality Horses

When I first went riding for a week in the mountains in South America it took us the best part of a year to research a company that had good horses. My friend refused to go unless we could be sure of that. Today many people have the same preoccupation, and I think that Horse Riding Chile is unusual in using better quality horses than the norm, and feeding them better so that they are in good condition.

One reason for this is that most of the horses were bought in the first place for riding in rodeos, not for tourism. So they start off a better class of horse. The other reason is that our head guide, Rigo, is passionate about horses and he likes them fat and well cared for. He used to be a horse trainer when younger and so all our horses have beautiful manners and are amazingly responsive to commands from the rider. This makes them easy for novice riders and a good ride for more experienced visitors.

quality horses for rides in the Andes

After spending 4 months in South America, this was my last chance to go horse riding. I was always reluctant to ride any of the other horses we came across whilst travelling, as their condition wasn`t to a standard that i would feel comfortable riding.
But these were beautiful horses. They were strong sturdy horse in the best condition that i`d seen in South America.

 The horses are all great, very sure-footed and easy to control, even for complete novices

 It is an adventure, not to worry, the horses are well trained.

. I have never enjoyed anything so much as this day with beautiful horses, great guides and wonderful friends.

 If you are looking for the thrill of a lifetime with friendly people and extremely well behaved and well kept horses then this is the place.

At first most people were a little nervous but you soon learn how strong and capable the horses are and you end up trusting them with your life! 

Horses are really good: surefooted, strong, energetic, good on the aids and well behaved. Also important: they are well cared for.

The horses were well trained and even though we were not experienced riders we found it very easy and always felt safe and in control.

The horses were kind tempered, very sure footed and strong.

The horses are small very very trained and very sure footed. NEVER NEVER felt unsafe despite going up and down some rather steep and rocky paths

 the horses were superbly trained – we only had to sit on them…
