I was so impressed by how well keep the horses were loved. When I did this tour in August. The dry season was really hard on the animals around the city. Plus, the dry season had lasted longer than expected. The animals were fully and healthy. The tour was excellent. The

It was only OK. My horse was so lazy and slow, i thought he would fall asleep while walking. But the scenery was very beautiful, we rode through pastures, forest, along a river, and across on a ferry with our horses. There were only 3 of us, so it was nice to have a small group.
