Ah, yes – things you don’t want to ask for fear of embarrassment! Generally your group will be fairly homongenous in terms of ability. But should you see (or need yourself) that someone is struggling or needs help, kudos to you to jump in – or better yet – quietly alert a staff member. Chances are, the person in need felt too embarrassed to ask for themselves and will be very grateful. This can range from help with tack that is new to you, requesting to slow the pace for a bit, a “convenience” stop (bathroom break), asking for a new horse, etc. This is your vacation and we want it to be an A+++ experience. But neither we, nor your guide, are mind readers. So please, pull us aside and let us help you – tell us what you need so we can get it taken care of as quickly as possible.
