If you’re coming between January and March (inclusive of both those months too), this is the list for you.
We have over 300 days of sunshine a year here! However, the weather in the mountains can be unpredictable and changeable.

This list of suggestions should help keep you safe and comfortable on your horse riding holiday, no matter the weather.
