Horseback Travel & Equestrian Tradition

ECUADOR Why Go There?

High in the Andes mountains, Ecuador offers horse-riding trails amongst the spectacular scenery of the Avenue of volcanoes. Immerse yourself in the culture of the Ecuadorian highlands and round-up cattle with local chagras (cowboys) whilst staying in traditional haciendas. Canter across open plains with no fencing to impede you, whilst watching condors circling overhead. You can even extend your riding holiday to visit the Amazon or Galapagos Islands.
