I did the horseback riding in Mexico when I went on a cruise and I was nervous to get there, afraid the horses would be in bad condition. They were all standing around in a dry lot, tacked save for the bridle, big water tubs everywhere and piles of hay. Everyone was fat, happy and shiny. The biggest problem I had was with the 'handsy' stable hands who HAD to lift me up onto the horse. Honestly though it was really fun, it wasn't like your typical 'trail ride', we went right through a little town full of dirt poor but VERY happy looking people, very interesting to see the way they lived, we went through the mountains, a very frightening looking river and saw some very cool looking things. Considering I didn't have high expectations, I was pleasantly surprised and would probably do a trail ride anywhere I vacationed, it's a neat way to do some sight seeing.
