"I have just returned to the office from Argentina. Thank you for all your arrangements, the trek went very well indeed. Fernando and his mother were the most wonderful hosts and I have no doubt that Robert and I chose the right trip - very memorable! It was a wonderful experience and I look forward to spending more time in South America, perhaps next time a little further South?..."

Valerie and family - Yellowstone Pack Trips, 18 August 2009.
"Thanks for a great ride in Uruguay. We always had good horses, and the pace was excellent with terrain that varied from rolling hills and woods, to wetlands and fast gallops along deserted beaches. The organisation and accommodation were always good with the estancias a particular delight. Looking forward to our next ride with you in Argentina/Chile..."

Best regards from Germany,
Axel & Verena - Kilimanjaro Ride June 2006.
"I cannot put into words how much I enjoyed the expedition. I feel that it is not only important for riders to see this fantastic area of the world, but to appreciate it. Perhaps the more that are aware, the more to help protect and preserve it. The photos are splendid, well that might not be the right word, let's say spectacular, even the aerials...."
Joy Mead - Tierra del Fuego Expedition, December 9th 2005.

Mange hilsner fra Kirsten,
Kirsten Kjaer - Gaucho Trail 24th November, 2007.
"Thanks for a great trip, really spectacular. I hope to long remember the riding, especially yesterday when we helped drive the horses back to camp ... and to have more such in future rides with you.
Many many highlights including wonderful horses, great camaraderie, splendid logistical planning, excellent contrasts and variety in what we saw, the primitive cave paintings, the get away from it all adventure, the fabulous New Years eve gathering and location, and among the best camp sites Ive encountered in 50 years of camping.
I am sure that the other 7 will be writing to share their enthusiasm for a great time together and a splendid kick-off for 2008...."
Here is to more rides together in the years to come.,
Louis Blair - Austral Expedition 14 Jan 2008.
"We all wanted to let you know that we had a great time in the horseback safari. We had the opportunity of learning a lot from you, Jan and Anna about Tanzania, Massai, horses and the game we saw most of the times when you pointed them to us. I am sure that now we are more able to spot an elephant in the middle of the savannah than before. The organization was so perfect that everything seemed easy to us, even being able to have hot showers in the middle of the bush ! We enjoyed all the spots you had chosen to set the camps, the nice sunsets, the cozy fire and the flying bird show on our nearly last if not last day. The food was very good and varied so we had a chance of eating a splendid tomato soup, finishing a whole cheese and trying ugali. We will all keep great memories of this trip and will also miss Kid, Segundo, Breveheart, Lazy, Straightone, Sinqwe and Porthos.
We enjoyed your company. I am sure we will meet again. We will certainly keep in contact. If you ever come to Madrid, please let us know...."
Send our regards to Anna, Jan and your father. Enjoy your next safari.,
Isabel - Kilimanjaro Ride, July 2008.
"Our holiday was spectacular! Fernando and his entire team from La Rosita are treasures! All of the thoughtful little "extras" and their superb attention to detail made our holiday truly perfect. The horses were magnificent, the views spectacular and the warmth and hospitality at each Estancia was unparalleled. We have travelled extensively and can honestly say that this vacation surpassed all others by leaps and bounds! We cannot wait to return! Thank you!..."
