Group Size

When we talk of Group Size we mean the number of guests who will ride out together at the same time. Some places can take a lot of guests, but would limit their riding group size to, for example, eight people. Also, when we talk about group size we mean the number of guests riding. On top of that there will be at least one guide, many times two (front and rear) and occasionally three (if the group size is larger or on the expedition type rides in South America or Mongolia).

Some rides will confirm if there is just one person booked. Others require a minimum group size of anything between two to six people and sometimes there is a price supplement for the ride to confirm at the smaller group size.

On each ride page we have given information on the likely group size. There is rarely an absolute maximum, so a ride that normally takes a maximum of eight people will be able to go to nine or even ten people on occasions without any problem.

A usual maximum is 12 guests but some destinations like Namibia and India can run with groups of up to 16 and in California there can be even more riders. These large group rides can be really exciting and of course are very sociable and in practice the riders are subdivided into smaller riding groups from time to time.

It is not always possible for us to guarantee who else will be in your riding group because, on some rides, clients may book through other tour operators and there can be last minute cancellations or bookings which change the makeup of the group. We will give you the names of the others who have booked through In The Saddle and we are happy to facilitate introductions if you would like to contact your fellow riders prior to the holiday, perhaps to meet at the airport or just to chat.

If the group size is important to you, then please check with us before you book. What one person would like; another would hate.
