Winter Ride - Romania

Winter Ride

4 star rating   8 February 2020

Anne-Marie who has been on 28 In The Saddle rides. An interesting experience | Having been to Romania before and really enjoyed the trail ride I was very much looking forward to seeing it at a different time of year and riding the horses again. Unfortunately, conditions weren't quite as hoped initially and there was much rain and mud in the first couple of days, and the horses on the first day were very fresh and lively and 3 riders were unshipped. Things improved later in the week when the snow arrived, and the whole landscape looked entirely beautiful, and the Wednesday afternoon ride was gorgeous. The Thursday morning ride didn't entirely go to plan as there was much ice meaning the horses couldn't go faster until later in the ride, by which time a couple of them had got quite worked up. By Friday the snow had finally properly come, and the Friday morning ride was long with many canters through the powdery snow which were wonderful. I also particularly enjoyed the Monday and Friday afternoon rides where the group was consisting of only 2 or 3 riders and the horses appeared a little more relaxed and we were able to go flat out on a couple of canters without any concerns that things may go awry.We did also have an encounter with a family of wild boar running in front of us which was wonderful to see. I did get slightly over-horsed on one morning, but was able to swap and after that was allocated horses within my capabilities which were a pleasure to ride, I was especially fond of Kiruna, Ayda and Widra.

Savannah (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Greatest week I 've ever had | The riding on the winter ride was amazing. It was a little challenging at times, but In The Saddle as well as the staff at Equus prepared us for this. The horses are great, super well trained, taken care of and really excited at times, but stil very well behaved. Everything is arranged in such a way that everyone is happy, both rider and horses.
