This race is epic and the landscape unbelievably beautiful but incredibly tough! The hills are so steep we had to zig-zag walk down and I still fell on my butt. We waded or swam about 25 rivers, got stuck under trees, got lost and went bush whacking, galloped across sandy bays, trotted along the narrowest cow paths on the planet with vertical drop offs to the ocean on your left and near vertical climbs up on your right. “I´m re-starting my GPS, no way are we supposed to lead our horses down THIS death trap!“ Sometimes I just closed my eyes. Would I do it again? Yes, in a heartbeat!
