Portugal - Alcainça

Riding Holiday

Received on 8 December 2016

Posted by: Lisa D (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) "Excellent riding on spectacular mounts!" It was a pleasure to learn dressage on highly trained Lusitanos from George Mallerone and Paulo. The farm is low-key, small scale and has a nice indoor arena as well as a large outdoor one. The 60 degree F temperature was perfect for riding (late November). The instructors are highly trained and experienced and are used to instructing top level riders. My daughter took 2 one and a half hour lessons a day, with her and one other rider and rode several different horses over the week, all of which were fabulously trained and lovely. I am a casual rider, without "ambition" per se, but took one lesson a day which actually inspired me to want to do more dressage with my own horse. Alcainca was a fabulous experience overall and I would love to do it again some day.

South Africa - Cape Winelands Riding

Cape Winelands Riding

Received on 8 December 2016

Posted by: The Galloping Gourmet who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. "Wine tasting on the hoof" We did the same holiday in 2014. Since then Louis has significantly extended the areas adjoining his Stables over which the rides take place thus making the rides much more varied and interesting. Before, the rides basically took place within the adjoining vineyards, now they extend to some higher, more remote and wilder areas. He has also increased the number of horses from 12 to 20 so giving a greater choice of mounts. We especially enjoyed 2 days out on new horses Ice and Baruk but we also enjoyed riding previous mounts, Maddison and Tallahassie. Tack good and comfortable for long rides.
