Riding a horse up to O’Cebreiro

We are walking from Leon to Sarria in May 2020 (I walked Sarria to Santiago in June 2019) and read threads that people had ridden horses for a few hours up to O’Cebreiro. I was wondering if it is possible to book in advance? Any thoughts on this? I have read other threads about people doing this and they say it can book up early. We have horses, so it would be fun to do that for a short bit, not to avoid the walking 😂

Hi Qhrider -
The booking details for the horseback experience are as follows:
Phone: +56 63 804 1823
Email : v.vigaray@gmail.com
Victor, who owns the horses, is on Facebook. His Facebook page is Al Paso.
Have a wonderful horseback experience and Buen Camino!

+ 56 is Chile
Spain is +34

I questioned the +56 prefix too when I got the number from the Al Paso Facebook page.
Who has their Brierley guide handy? In another thread on the same topic it was mentioned that the phone number is in the Brierley guide. I’m on holidays on the NSW South Coast and don’t have my Brierley guide with me. Knowing the correct prefix will be helpful.

Brierley's guide doesn't have the country code. You could assume the +34. But who would rely on information from a guidebook?
