Once back at the stables we headed out for lunch and then a few of us decided to do the walk back to Castano with Sasha (Craig's wife). The walk was good to stretch our legs after the riding and had some really nice scenery.
We had dinner in the usual place tonight before crashing out for the night tired and achey.
After lunch we had the option of doing an off-road ride or walking the rest of the way, a few of us opted for the walking. We met up with the others at Cortelazor and had a quick drink then some of us got a taxi back to Castano and some did an extra ride.

It was very pretty and also had some very fast downhills, but all good things do come to an end and we had to go up. The only way up was to push, but at the top, the views were great.
