Botswana - Limpopo Tuli Trail

Tuli Trail

Received on 25 May 2017

Posted by: Laura who has been on 12 In The Saddle rides. "Great safari for getting close to wildlife" The week's Trail ride took us through some very remote areas & we had fantastic opportunities to view many herds of elephant and other wildlife in natural 5. Not a ride for those who are nervous on a horse in close proximity to big game! Early starts meant several hours of riding could be completed before it got too hot. Siesta time after lunch was much appreciated, followed by non-riding activities in the late afternoon (game drive at Mashatu Reserve, bush walks, visit to a village, etc). Appreciated how pleasantly clean the horses and tack were. My horse was well trained, comfortable & forward-going, easily picking up a couple of cheeky gallops! Riding pace was varied, with long canters interspersing slower paces when near game. Knowledgable & helpful guides. Interesting variety of camp sites, all clean & comfortable. A memorable Trail ride through some fascinating country, would thoroughly recommend. We followed this ride with a week at Macatoo in the Okavango Delta; a complete contrast and a combination which worked really well.

Botswana - Macatoo

Riding Safari

Received on 25 May 2017

Posted by: Speed Queen who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. "Absolutely fantastic!" Thoroughly enjoyed all the riding - the horses were absolutely superb - they were forward going but all you had to do to steady the pace a little or come down from canter to trot was simply sit up a little and alter your balance a tad. I found all the horses to be very responsive - I rode seven different ones ranging from a Percheron to an ex-racehorse but they all responded to subtle aids. Without doubt the Macatoo horses are the fittest and most polite I have ridden.

Portugal - Monte Velho

Monte Velho

Received on 25 May 2017

Posted by: MaryAnne (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) "Super combo" The horses are so lovely and exceeded my expectations. They have good temperaments and are very well looked after and trained. I was surprised to find stallions so well behaved with each other. A real treat to ride Lusitanos when I normally ride native British cobs. It's like sitting on a Rolls Royce!
