Recommendations and instructions

Basic horse trekking is for a maximum of 4 hours per day.
The basic horse trekking circuits are very accesible and flat, near to Cabanaconde.
When you go on longer, multiple-day expeditions (far from Cabanaconde) the cost of renting horses is higher, since the animals have to make more effort and the logistics are more complicated.
For example: in expeditions of 2 to 7 days we also have to include horses that carry the camping equipment, food, and personal baggage.
The horses and/or mules that go on multiple day expeditions are different: they are strong and therefore are more expensive.
Please request horses at least a day or two in advance.
