Jane who has been on 10 In The Saddle rides. Mountains of the Gredos - Absolutely fantastic! | I was given a super horse called Chile - very well schooled and obedient - a joy to ride - very responsive. I was at the front of the ride deliberately as having done these rides before I know it can end up being a bit crowded at the back. Chile had excellent brakes, was very sure footed and made me feel very safe and secure. A super horse. This holiday is not promoted as being a ‘fast' ride and why would you want to go fast when there is so much amazing scenery to look at! There were one or two moments when the walking got a bit monotonous, but Emilio made sure we got canters every day and there were some good trots. He also took great care to make sure everyone was secure and happy with the pace.

Diane (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) It was a slow ride but this had been flagged up before we booked the holiday, however, sometimes it was two hours + of walking before we changed pace and for me it did become a bit monotonous. However, we really enjoyed the long stops after lunch giving time to chill out or swim in the nearby rivers, absolutely gorgeous.
