This trail far exceeded my expectations! I cannot imagine a better holiday: adventure, experiencing nature, relaxation, team work and many hours in the saddle, made this trail ride a unique experience for me! Rudi’s horses are fantastic! They use their power, skill and endurance in an intelligent way to manage the challenging route through the Pyrenees. I could trust my horse Calderín right from the beginning. He knew his task very well, was clearly experienced and he was fully motivated – just like the other horses. Without hesitation, he climbed the steep and stony paths and crossed streams, always paying attention to where he would put his hooves. Between the sweaty ascents, again and again, there was always time for a fast trot or canter, which we enjoyed. While descending we would lead the horses to give them a bit of a break on the steep slopes. This was also a welcome change for us!
Rudi guided us safely through the beautiful mountain world of the Pyrenees. He knows the area like the back of his hand, and thanks to his long-time experience he was always very relaxed. He showed us patiently how to tack and “load” up the horses correctly. The equipment that the horses carried for us has been developed by him especially for these trail rides. All of it is meticulously thought through and designed with care so that nothing can go wrong. Whenever we needed assistance, Nacho and Dani were there to help. Their service is a huge asset to the tour. They master the material logistics with a smile on their faces, and they are responsible for the perfect put up and pack away of the camps on a daily basis, as well as the kitchen! We were culinarily spoiled with wonderful food and no one could escape the charm of the rustic Catalan accommodation.
I would like to thank the whole Panorama-Trails team for their efforts. With enthusiasm, I can recommend the Andorra Trail to all experienced, fit and adventurous riders.
