This fantastic trail is a new program. Bobby and Mary Jane have explored the whole region of Sierra Juarez on horseback to create a new trip. It took them weeks and even months to discover all the hidden paths and places, but it was worth it! Like a chain of pearls they added one highlight after the other. Both agree: there is a certain magic about Sierra Juarez, the high valley in the South of Mexico, that nourishes the soul.
 

The riders will see fantastic views that change in continuation, as the landscape varies a lot. We move between 1.500 and 3.000 meters height, there are a lot of breathtaking panoramas! We ride from cacti groves to old growth oak forests to an ecosystem co-inhabited by pine trees and mutant-sized agaves.  Wild orchids accompany the paths, seldom cacti plants attract the riders view by their strange and bizarre shapes.
 

We walk with our horses along paths that were used for hundreds of years as a connection between the mountain villages.

In the middle of the week the horses will have a rest. The riders, however, will start an adventurous insider road trip by Jeep. There is a lot to explore in the subtropic micro-climate of Sierra Juarez! This excursion is not only a further highlight concerning the landscape, but offers also the opportunity to visit indigenous artisans such as a pottery.

 

The ride offers a lot of variety and new things to see. We marvel at beautiful antique baroque churches in typical Mexican style.  We pass river courses and feel close to our horses like red Indians in the past. We enjoy the adventure to swim with our horses. The landscape is wild, original and of a rough beauty. This is Mexico as almost nobody knows it!

 

At the end of the day we will pass the night in one of the little mountain villages, such as “Amatlan” and “Lachatao”, which offer nice and comfortable ecotourism cabins to their guests.

There is nothing “rustic” about this ride; cabins have hot showers and fireplaces, saddles have skeepskin pads, days end with fresh lime margaritas and begin with rich Oaxaca estate coffee.
