  trekking with Basotho ponies.
by sachara

The Basotho pony is famous because it can easily move in rough mountaineous areas without breaking its legs. With its soft hoofs the pony has more grip a the rough and irregular soil. The possesion of a pony is rather common in Lesotho.
It's nice to make a ponyride during your stay in Lesotho. There is a Pony Trekking Centre, but also at many lodges you can arrange the hiring of a pony.
We made a half day tour to a nice village in the mountains.
It is not necessary to be an experienced rider.
