Atlantis and Green Island Trail - Azores

Atlantis Ride

5 star rating   8 September 2018

Kes who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Azores | I rode different horses most days which was very exciting and gave me the opportunity to experience the variety of horses available.


Horizon Lodge - South Africa

Horizon

5 star rating   8 September 2018

Stephen M (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Amazing - Felt part of the Horizon Family | I rode Spice first who needed a bit of encouragement and then Trapper, Misty and Nadal. I would have liked to have ridden Trapper more but enjoyed riding all the different horses. All the horses were well cared for and equipment was serviceable and well maintained.

Whilst I would have preferred to do more riding at speed, overall, the riding was amazing. Every ride was different. From seeing the African wildlife, herding cattle, swimming, jumps and polocrosse, there was lots of variety - whilst I started to recognise the various trails no ride ever felt the same. Being particularly rusty at the start I felt the guides were excellent at judging the pace and ability of each rider and then set a pace which was appropriate (and safe) for all riders in the group.

Castle Leslie Estate - Ireland

Riding Programme

5 star rating   7 September 2018

Jam who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Will be going again | Max of 6 riders on each ride, leaders, good variety of terrain, long canters, gallops up wide fields. Walks through rivers and the edge of the lake. An initial assessment to put you with the right horse, although I rode a variety of horses depending on what we were doing, cross country or hacking. This was my first cross country, the leader was great giving me the confidence to do the jumps.

El Bronco - Hungary

Ranch Stay

5 star rating   3 September 2018

Wendy (The chocolate nylon group)!!! who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. El Bronco - Hungary | Riding was fantastic through beautiful scenic routes, totally off road. Good pace kept, plenty of loping and jogging. Horses were beautifully behaved, forward going and responsive.

We had good humour with Robert and Sophie (I think that was her pronunciation) on the rides and both were really helpful.

The Great Trek - Kyrgyzstan

The Great Trek

5 star rating   3 September 2018

Patrick Darling who has been on 9 In The Saddle rides. Krygyzstan | This was called the Great Trek; and it really was. Quite demanding, we rode for 2,000 to 3,600 metres. The terrain was sometimes steep and vertiginous, it was sometimes rocky and rough. The distances were demanding and added up to 500km. Helene Guilerm was a superb guide. The horses were tough and beautifully looked after. The absence of mobile signal and internet signal in the mountains meant this was a real get away.


El Bronco - Hungary

Kambaku Safari Lodge - Namibia

Kambaku Safari Lodge 2018

5 star rating   2 September 2018

Liz who has been on 7 In The Saddle rides. Serene bush, terrific horses. | Riding excellent but not very varied. Covered the same ground sometimes as a maximum of two and a half hours’s return trip. A good pace for me (not too fast) with some long canters. I rode two great horses - one for the trail riding and one for lessons - both really suited me.


Highland Trails - Iceland

Snæfellsnes

4 star rating   1 September 2018

Justaryder who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Good fun | the horses were all in good condition, fit and keen to work. All had good natures and were obliging to their ever changing riders. The tack is not as you would find in the UK but once the mind accepts this all is fine. It is in working order and the horses have no saddle/bridle sores

Medieval Tuscany

5 star rating   1 September 2018

Kirsty (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Castellare di Tonda | The tuition we received the first day was an impeccable introduction to Western Riding, being watched over by both Marco our guide and Franco the trainer made us feel at ease both with the style and our horses. We could see the care and attention they gave to us and the horses to be certain in their choices of pairing.


Kujwana - Botswana

Riding Safari

5 star rating   31 August 2018

John (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Horse riding through your own wildlife documentary | They took a lot of care matching each rider to their strengths and preferences. The riding was of varied pace, fast enough to be exciting at times but sufficiently restrained to view the wildlife.

El Bronco - Hungary

Ranch Stay

5 star rating   26 August 2018

Hilary who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. The best riding holiday I have ever had | Robert and his trainers helped my son, Isaac, who is ten years old. He started as a total beginner, and by the end of the week was cantering safely around the arena on his own. They were absolutely wonderful with him and have inspired him to ride more at home.
I am an experienced rider but learnt a great deal more on this holiday. It was really interesting to learn the western style of riding, and my horse was very sensitive and well behaved.
I would say that the riding and tuition exceeded my expectations.

Anne (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Montana - Rocking Z | Absolutely amazing place with the horses' welfare as top priority. The family were very patient with us all and were really good at learning and giving us more experience to "play", for example. help pick up horses in the morning, jump over tree trunks in the woods, give it a full gallop in the most beautiful surroundings.
