The relationship between horses and human beings has existed for more than 6 millenniums. Since the beginning, horses have helped us carry out tasks more easily and soon became our inseparable companions.
In actuality, the relationship between horses and human beings isn’t so extensive anymore; however, there are still places in which their help is fundamental. For example, without the company of horses, no tourists could enjoy treks with the comfort afforded by not having to carry the weight of their luggage.
Salkantay Trekking clearly understands the work of porters and horses. Because of this, they organized an anti-rabies and anti-parasite campaign to contribute to the sanitary care and physical maintenance of their more than 400 horses and mules that work on their trails.
This campaign took place in conjunction with the Assistant Manager of Economic Development of the Municipality of the District of Mollepata who offered their personal technician to apply the medicines and vaccinations. The stadium of the Mollepata district was the chosen place to have this activity. There, our collaborators displayed a wonderful ability to lasso horses. To finalize this day’s journey, there was a speech made to the porters about general care of their horses and mules.
