Kate who has been on 8 In The Saddle rides. Fun and Relaxing | The slow rides were suitable for complete novices, the fast rides were fairly short and a very controlled slow lope, mostly dictated by the ground, which was fairly hard and stony. Horses were very well behaved and knew their job. The wranglers were good and knew each horse well. Team penning was great fun.

Bernster who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. A Wild West holiday | They really take care to match you to the right horse. We had a riding test to establish if we could do a fast ride and they do pay attention to riding ability before they let you loose!
My novice partner had a great horse for him, steady and straightforward. As a more experienced (English style) rider, I initially was matched with a more advanced horse who was lovely but actually a bit too advanced for me. They switched me on day 2 to one that suited me better. I liked that they paid attention to this for rider and horse safety.
We expected the terrain as we’d read up beforehand. It’s more like proper cowboy style from westerns - drier, flatter, more arid. So the riding was a bit more limited and mainly walk hacks along similar terrain but the wranglers were chatty and friendly and we went a different route each day. The beer and Cheetos ride was a nice change and we would have done the ride to Tombstone ride but it was thanksgiving weekend so this wasn’t available that week.
