Exploring the region on horseback is the perfect way to cover a good distance, while learning about the local - and in many cases unique, flora and fauna as you go.

Some previous riding experience is generally required, but please note this isn't going to be a high octane ride for pros only, rather a gentle walk and occasional trot.
