On horseback

Four days ago I got sure of ONE thing. I will walk or go horse-riding the French way in May 2010. First I didn´t think of horseriding - but I love it and have a very strong and nice icelandic horse - and if it´s possibly it must be fantastic. I already ordered a book which I hope includes useful and actual information.
Now I would like to have contact with people who has experience of this trip on horseback or if you, like me, are planning such a trip.
A lot of wishes to find interested people out there! Hallo!

I had dinner with a guy doing the trip on horseback. He said he had a friend who had done it the year before, and the horse enjoyed it so much, he lent him the horse so it could do another trip.

The horse stayed outside our hotel that night, and was cared for by another friend driving along and helping out. The next morning the rider walked the horse for the first kilometer to let him warm up. No wonder the horse liked the trip!

Advice for Entering the City on Horseback
Pilgrims planning to enter the city on horseback should notify the Local Police (tel: 092) several days before their arrival. The police will thereby be able to tell you the compulsory route and stipulated times, and give you an access permit so that you can enter as far as Plaza del Obradoiro and stay for a short time in front of the Cathedral. Immediately thereafter, the horses should be taken to their pre-arranged stables or accommodation.
