May 2010 Newsletter

by Hidden Trails 05/02/2010

April was a very busy month, so I did not get around to writing a Newsletter. So here we go ....

New Brochure
I was very busy trying to get the new brochure finished in April, which finally will go to press next week and should be available by late-May. It have 196 full color pages with most of our equestrian tours.
Everyone, that has travelled with us in the last couple of years, will get a free copy in the mail by the end of the month.
For all others, there will be a charge of US$ 4.95 for the new issue (+ shipping and handling). The brochure charge is refundable with your next reservation with Hidden Trails.
Please note, that this new issue will not have any fixed dates and rates, since it will be in circulation for at least 2 years. For all up to date info with rates and dates, please, refer to our website at, where you can also create your own online digital brochure and save it to your computer and print.
