Spain - Pyrenean Adventures

Fresh & Saltwater Trail

Received on 28 July 2014

Posted by: Ruth (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) "Beautiful Trail" This was my first trail ride and I was a little nervous. However I had a fantastic guide called Anais who made me feel relaxed and safe at all times. She was always willing to help and very patient! The horses were well cared for with sheepskin girth straps and numnahs to help prevent rubbing. I had a superb horse who walked out well and was powerful in all paces.

Posted by: Steph H who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. "A fantastic holiday" Cathy worked very hard to make sure that our horses were suited to us. I felt comfortable and safe at all times. The riding was great - exactly as described, with plenty of canters.

Kenya - Maasai Mara

Maasai Mara Ride

Received on 25 July 2014

Posted by: Saddle sore who has been on 16 In The Saddle rides. "Superb glamping but let down by riding" It seem churlish to criticise when so much was so good but this was a riding holiday and that was poor. The safety and enjoyment of their guests is the primary duty of every holiday provider. I provided In the Saddle with a specification for the horse I required for my holiday. This information included a well schooled, slim horse, small saddle, preferably Western style (for comfort and safety). This information was forwarded to the holiday provider in Kenya. I was given a standard sized thoroughbred horse with a standard “one size fits all” English saddle. Extra padding had also been put beneath the saddle so it was even wider. There was no choice of horse or saddle. As always, I was told that the saddle had to fit the horse. As usual, no mention that it also had to fit the rider. It did not fit me and, even with my seat saver, I had to sit on the back of the saddle with my legs forwards. The horse’s trot was excruciating so I had to canter or walk. (The hosts acknowledged his poor trot and suggested I did this.) The manes of all the horses were hogged. This left nothing to help when trying to stand in the stirrups to increase my comfort. Another guest suggested a neck strap so this was provided. On day 5, when cantering, I injured my medial knee ligament restricting my riding to every other day and a walk only. The role of the badly fitting tack is a matter of conjecture - but I have 6-8 weeks of recovery time to consider it. The horse was temperamentally excellent but his hard mouth testified to previous poor owners’ treatment. Both horses and tack were excellent quality and condition but this does not compensate for ignoring the needs of guests.
