    about provider
    Une expérience équestre incroyable dans le véritable Mexique, avec ses vastes étendues désertiques de cactus et ses plantations d'agaves, explorée à dos de magnifiques quartiers chevaux bien entraînés et sûrs. Nous avons traversé ces paysages en visitant de charmantes haciendas, certaines très anciennes. Nous avons bénéficié d'un accompagnement exceptionnel qui nous a donné un sentiment de sécurité tout au long du séjour et nous a permis de rencontrer les habitants locaux, dont l'accueil restera inoubliable! Je recommande vivement Juan Alfonso à tous ceux qui souhaitent vivre une expérience équestre authentique et dépaysante.
