“Roaring into free flight for the first time like that – my world encased in the sound of rushing wind and four hooves pounding through tide-swept sand – goes beyond fantasy, affecting a dozen more senses in the body than the five that science knows about.” “The guide became worried when he saw my tears as we galloped along the beach. I told him they were not tears of fear but tears of exhilaration.” These quotes from a Newsday article and one of High Pointe’s clients most aptly describes your experience on a High Pointe equestrian vacation. Endless trails. Trails with no end in sight and allowance to vary the pace produces a delightful feeling of freedom and unique opportunity to connect with your horse. New friends. You will ride with horse people from around the world and mingle with local villagers in either popular pubs or busy markets and shops. Silence. With rare access to cell phones and the respectful silence of your fellow riders, you are left with the brilliant songs of native animals and the mesmerizing sound of the clip clop of your horse’s hooves on the ground. Challenge. Trails ascending to the highest peaks in the world or descending into the deepest crevices, crossing moving rivers and riding to places where few humans are able to trek are available to will test your mettle. Party. Your day ends with a gathering of fellow riders to reminisce of your daily adventures and to partake in the delicious local traditional food and drink. Scenery. Can only be described as “awesome!” Pristine landscapes will create photo opportunities that will rival those found in National Geographic magazine. Exhale.
