During my stay in Ecuador, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to partake in a two-day horseback riding trip through the countryside surrounding Mt. Chimborazo. The trip was absolutely fabulous! We embarked from Riobamba and took a bus to Arenal the friendly community president met us at his home. There were six of us total, the community president, one good friend of mine, and two other travellers, one from Australia and the other from China. It was wonderful to meet other fellow travellers as we got along really well. We packed our belongings on the horses, including a few clothes, a tent, food and water and then set out during late morning on the first day. I was absolutely amazed at the beauty of the surrounding hills and of course Chimborazo in the distance.
