So close to Quito, but seemingly thousands of miles away. needless to say, having never even seen a horse in person, i was very much second-guessing my decision to participate. however, as others have commented (we went on a 4 or 5 hour ride), by the end of the day, i was happily trotting along and really absorbing the incredible tranquility inside the crater. KUDOS to Astrid... an unforgettable experience with unforgettable guides and fellow guests :-)
See, you must be a natural talent, Greg! :-) Very happy to hear you enjoyed this new experience!
