This is our newest multi-day ride that explores the foothills and fertile farmlands of the  Tlacolula valley. Meander weathered cattle trails and canter a camino real made by the Spaniards hundreds of years ago. Horse-drawn carts still work the traditional farmlands and friendly shepherds tend their livestock on the open communal lands. Ride to the Villa Ecologica of Tierra del Sol to learn about sustainable living in their real-life, hands-on center. On day three ride to the ethnically Zapotec village of Teotitlan del Valle, famed for its beautiful hand-loomed weaving. Ride past agave plantations and marvel at the massive cacti along the trail.
