You don’t need to be an experienced rider to do these tours. Actually, it’s a good opportunity to try riding! In the mountains the trails are not suited for gallop, so the tours are mostly walking-pace ones. In places you may have to dismount and lead the horse (especially downhill on slippery bits), but generally the local horses know how to choose the best route. Svans don’t keep horses for tourists, the animals you will be riding are working horses, used to walking in the mountains and to carrying people. Please note that we are NOT able to provide safety helmets.
