They are essentially strong and holder Corsican horses. 
Their high trustworthiness allows you to cross the most rugged trails (they are real goats!). Sometimes, you need to cross damaged paths on foot.

Tack

We use "Officer" saddles, similar to English saddles but much more convenient, particularly to carry the accessories. Saddlebags and holsters are available for you to carry your daily material.

This tour is suitable for riders who feel at ease outdoor at the three gaits, even if the walk stays the main gait due to injured paths.
