To kick off the day, Steven and I decided to take a 2-hour horse ride with Vaqueros Rando. It’s about an hour’s drive from Noumea to reach Ouano, one of the starting points recommended by Norbert, our guide.
Although Steven is less at ease with horses than I am, the ones we were given were so well-trained that he managed to gallop and even climb up to the many viewpoints while riding his. From up there, you can really see the contrast of colours between the mountains and the lagoon and realise just how vast the terrain is.
We loved the different landscapes and the close contact with the horses. This ride for two was my BEST experience of the weekend!
