The Sierra Nevadapack trip was outstanding. Excellent food and great staff. Super country to ride in and great stock for every level of rider. A must for any level of rider.

The horseback trip into the Sierra Nevada Mountains was amazing, the experience of a lifetime! It was truly rather strenuous and it was important to have really the right equipment for the altitude and temperature and to have some comfort on horses, but that done, the trip was amazing! Gorgeous scenery all around you 24/7, lovely, well-behaved sure-footed horses, fun and fascinating people to be with (I came solo), and the leader and outfitter staff were superb, couldn't have been better. I've dreamed of doing a trip like this since I was a kid growing up in California and to think that I could do it at age 65 finally it just beyond belief. The trip really bolsteered by confidence in myself and good feelings about aging -- I felt like superwoman!
