The Hideout - Wyoming

The Hideout

5 star rating   9 June 2018

Vicky (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) The riding was very well managed and the rides felt very safe and controlled. The rides (25 people) were split into much smaller groups of 5 or so, and people were matched with others of similar ability. Only one day, a large group of 15 went out together, but this was supported by 4-5 wranglers, and canters were split into small groups to manage speed and ability. It was disappointing that you had to change horses throughout the week, when you had established a relationship with your horse, but this was accepted due to full day rides and the need for horses to rest. The scenery was excellent and the terrain was varied.

Liz who has been on 5 In The Saddle rides. Great Riding Holiday | The team at the stables are understandably cautious about matching you to the right horse especially if you do not have much western experience. I was perhaps a little under horsed but she was a lovely mare and I felt no need to ask for another. I enjoyed learning new skills, Marco and his team were very kind. The rides out into the beautiful Tuscan countryside were so fabulous. A different ride each day.


Hacienda Zuleta - Ecuador

Hacienda Zuleta

5 star rating   9 June 2018

Gaitedfan who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Hacienda Zuleta | I had high expectations going to Hacienda Zuleta, and this place met all of them. It was the vacation home of two past Ecuadorian presidents for a reason. The scenery is stunning, very lush and bucolic. Its also very clean and safe and gives you a good look at rural life in Ecuador. The food and service is great. The beds are wonderfully soft which is welcome after a long day in the saddle. Each room also has a working fireplace which is stocked every night.

I rode 4 hoses and liked them all - soft mouths, super responsive, no vices. The tack is western style and is very comfortable. We went riding with a local guide who works at the hacienda taking care of the horses and an English speaking guide. Each ride was a combination of walking and long, controlled canters. The guides know what riders want and cater well to it. My friend and I loved it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great South American vacation.
