Gillian (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) A fabulous adventure on horseback | The horses were ideal for the job they did. They were all good natured. The approach to horse management is very different to what we do at home and the horses were a healthy and happy herd. They did seem to spend very long periods without eating but did not seem to suffer as a result and were in good condition.

The riding was slow (never more than a walk) but through challenging country with spectacular views. The days were full with packing up in the morning, long days riding with 1-2 hour lunches and then making camp in the evening and helping with the chores. We definitely slept well!

Sue (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Yukon Shine Valley - a wonderful adventure | The ride was in wilderness on a scale I couldn't have imagined. The terrain was steep, boggy or through quite dense brush at times. Not what you would consider riding through in the UK! But the horses took you through it all and made it possible to spend 7 days without seeing another person who was not part of the group. Wide glacial valleys, high mountains, beautiful lakes, sub-alpine tundra and mixed boreal forest. Long days in the saddle, always at a walk (you couldn't go faster and no need!). An experience that will always live in my memory.

Amanda who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Great experience | Unfortunately, due to late snow melt in the mountains we were unable to do the full ride as one of the rivers was flowing to full and fast to cross and the snow in the final mountain passes were too deep. This also led to the terrain being much wetter than normal. The guides did a great job of providing a interesting riding experience taking us on different trails to get back to the base camp.

Gitte who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. The horse I had was absolutely perfect according to my wishes and super sure-footed in the very challenging terrain. Well-kept and well-kept, equipment in perfect order.
