Riding guest reviews

"First trail in Corsica : wonderful and very diverse landscapes, from mountain to sea, going through chestnut tree forests ; warm and friendly team ; small horses agile like chamois. And all of this with delicious corsican gastronomy, homemade jams, improvised concerts with guitar and bass in an old sheepfold facing the sea... To do again really quick!" - Anne-Lise F. (2014)
