Philippa who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Horizon - so much fun! | The riding was excellent, a great mix of wildlife spotting and canters through varied terrain and, for those who wanted to do it, jumping. The horses were great, forward going but I felt comfortable riding every single one they put me on.
[Abbie from ITS replies: Thanks so much for taking the time to tell us about your holiday. We're so pleased you had such a wonderful time at Horizon].

Marian who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Fabulous | This was our second holiday at Horizon - and I have to say I think we enjoyed it even more second time around. The owners and staff are so welcoming and really fun to be around. The riding was superb - horses matched perfectly to our individual abilities.

Fiona who has been on 5 In The Saddle rides. Fabulous trip to Horizon | I love this place so much!!!
Lovely riding, great guides, super accommodation and food. All done to a high standard and still retains a friendly, family type feel.
Can't wait to come back to see TP and Hilbillie Blue.
I had some tears when it was time to leave - has only ever happened on one holiday before (also in South Africa)
Thank you Horizon.

Rebecca who has been on 10 In The Saddle rides. Fabulous riding | Wonderful horses, great guides and always something fun to do. This time because the dam was full I enjoyed a lot of swims on the horses and I was impressed with the new jumping lane. At Horizon, it's not just about the horses, everyone is helpful, warm and fun to spend time with. So many people go the extra mile... thank you

Barbara who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Horizon - Friendly, exciting, fun week with nature | This holiday surpassed my expectations as I had been on a few safaris before with elephant & cats so I thought this safari may be a little “tame". However I was entirely wrong, the horses were fabulous, characterful but mannerly, very well cared for & super professional! The rides were fun, very much gauged to the rider's ability. The team couldn’t do enough for the guests, so kind, fun & thoughtful.

Alison who has been on 12 In The Saddle rides. Another wonderful holiday | Excellent
3 April 2022
Shannon who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. An Amazing Family Holiday | We had an fantastic week at Horizon. All five members of our family are at different riding levels, with ages ranging from 9 to 50, but we managed to ride together all week with no one feeling left out or held back. The staff and horses were perfect. Some great activities were organised from Polocrosse to swimming with the horses. I wouldn't change a thing.

Clare who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Brilliant yet again | I really enjoyed riding Spice and Apache. I really enjoyed the long bendy canters in the game reserve. 1st week Polocross was really fun shame on the 2nd week we had somebody who had played it a lot. (Claire from In The Saddle comments: I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the riding)

Julie who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Horizon - brilliant break | Wide range of horses who are extremely well trained! Llots of opportunities to learn about horsemanship and engage in other activities.

Karolyn who has been on 15 In The Saddle rides. Relaxing in the sun | All the horses seemed relaxed but willing and, even on faster rides, did not feel the need to bunch up close.
At this time of year, those at the back of the ride get to eat quite a bit of dust, and 8 riders can be uncomfortable.

Grace who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Trip of a lifetime | Please add any further comments on the riding e.g. did it meet your expectations: I’m fairly new to riding and my friend is very experienced. We were both matched with the perfect horse which equally allowed me to keep up with the pack and my friend to have a enjoyable challenging ride (precisely what we both wanted!) horses are happy and clearly well loved and not treated like a commodity.

Clare (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! | Varied rides in small groups. Lots of long canters and suitable for ability.
2 October 2019
Marian who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Absolutely Fabulous | The horses were extremely well cared for, in fact I would go as far as to say you would be hard pushed to find anywhere any better at this. All the horses looked very well and you could tell they were happy as they were always willing to work. This is probably due to the fact that one, they are not overworked and hence are always fresh and keen and secondly, they live as close to a natural life as possible, ie live in a herd and turned out 24/7.

Caroline who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Spectacularly brilliant in every way | Beautifully schooled horses who were a joy to ride
15 August 2019
Rahma (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) We expected to see more animals.Overall satisfying! We had a great time. Each guide has his own style, which contributed to have an enriching experience .We particularly liked the guide Owen. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see as many animals as we were promised.
[Becky from In The Saddle replied: I am sorry to hear that you didn't see as many animals as you'd have liked to. Unfortunately we can never promise game sightings as the animals are free to roam throughout the reserve.]

Sue (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Awesome riding experience....heavenly! | The horses were excellent and bomb proof. Horizon takes very good care of their horses, which is nice to see. I loved the long canters too and all the pretty scenery. It was very relaxing and the guides were super. They all had fun stories and a good sense of humor. Can not say enough good things.
Claudia (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) South Africa horizon lodge | Excellent
