You will be riding English style.
I am a Western rider. Can I do a ride with English tack?
Probably. While good riding is much the same on any saddle, not all Western riders feel comfortable in an English saddle right away.

Our One-Hour trek is intended for Beginner and Novice riders, but riders with more experience are more than welcome. The guide will cater the trek to the riders as much as possible.
Two-Hour, Half-Day and Full-Day Treks are suitable for Intermediate and Advanced riders. Beginner and Novice riders can go on these rides separately

Here are some guidelines to help you judge your riding ability:
Beginner: A rider with little or no experience.
Novice: A rider who is comfortable and in control at the walk and/or trot but has limited experience trotting and/or cantering.
Intermediate: A rider who is confident and in control in all paces (including posting trots, two point canters and gallops), but does not ride regularly.
Strong Intermediate: An intermediate rider who is currently riding regularly and is comfortable in the saddle for at least 6 hours per day.
Advanced: All of the above plus the ability to handle a spirited horse in open country.

No. We have our own tack, which is suited to the type of riding you will be doing, for you to ride in. You may bring your own riding helmet and boots, but if you do not own your own gear or if you do not want to travel with it, we provide riding helmets and boots for your use.
