Wait A Little - South Africa
Experience Level

Garonga Ride

5 star rating   3 June 2017

This was my fifth trip to Wait a Little and my second Garonga ride. What makes this so special for me is the quality of the horses. All the horses that I have ridden have been responsive, soft mouthed and well mannered. The thrill of the canter and their calmness around the game makes for fantastic experiences. Whether you ride with Philip or Rusty, both Guides of the highest competence, you can find yourself so very close to Elephant, Lion, Buffalo and Rhino. Here your trusty steed really comes into his own and due to their training they stand, alert but waiting for their riders commands. Oh what a thrill and then to exit the scene walking quietly leaving the animals to continue their day.

The Romanian scenery was absolutely stunning in the meadows and mountains, covered in wild flowers. The pace was very varied from walking through meadows, fast trots and canters and climbing up and down really steep mountain sides, with all the horses just taking it all in their stride (so fit and strong).

There were a wide range of horses to suit every rider's preferences. Christina and her team were very careful to ensure they matched you with a horse you liked. The rides were varied and enabled you to see all of the island, which was absolutely beautiful.

Castle Leslie staff and horses are wonderful! I wanted to do cross-country and jump, and my husband is learning, and we each had everything we hoped for ... though I could always do with more lessons from Orla!

Riding out was with traditional Portuguese saddles over surrounding countryside - mainly grassy hills and Cork Tree groves. Dressage lessons were from 3 instructors, on a variety of horses - all very responsive and capable of advanced dressage.

They are really good matching horse and rider. Fun riding in the forest and on the beach. Every day we cleaned the bridles and that helps Los Alamos to keep the equipment in good order.

4 hours in the saddle every day - prepare at home. We were fit and had some wonderful rides, but you're tired afterwards.Everything will be organized according to your wishes.

The riding was great. Rachel was very good at matching you to the correct horse. The horses are well cared for and very well behaved. You can tell they enjoy what they do. The gallops on the beach and firebreaks were amazing.

5 star rating   27 May 2017

The horses were in beautiful condition, very well metained, certainly not a average riding school horse. They are only allowed to be ridden once a day with frequent schooling sessions from the professionals to keep them fresh, ready and willing to work. They are not machines, you have to ride, some are quite young, but very well schooled and with the help of Gonzales and Pedro, you find your riding improving to a level that before you know it you are performing high level movements you never dreamt you were able to do. An amazing learning opportunity and experience!

The temperature was abnormally high for the season, so we probably had less canter than planned. There was little trotting.
Otherwise, very satisfied with the terrain, horses, tack and hospitality/ service during the trip.

Green Island Trail

5 star rating   27 May 2017

It totally exceeded my expectations.
The rides are beautiful and it felt like faster sections of riding were taylored for people who wanted to go fast, which I did.
I particularly liked the riding lesson with Christina before we got started - I hadn't had a lesson for about 30 years. I found it so helpful that I booked another on a beautifully schooled dressage horse later in the week - as an extra.

I experienced rather different riding to what I expected. I had the same horse for trail riding, but was also allowed to try other horses during the week. I had fantastic riding on the trail and also across challenging terrain. I had a lot of lessons both in western riding and cattle work. I was able to ride a lot bareback. We had the opportunity to have lots of games in the arena eg barrel racing, etc. which was really fun. All the horses were incredibly well-schooled and there were well looked after. I had the opportunity to lead horses on horseback to the corrals in the evening and fetch them in the morning again, which was real fun. I felt like you could do anything you wanted too, if you let hosts know that you wanted to do something. The hosts had a really good feel for the individual guests' needs and level.

Although the National park was lovely to ride in there was little variation in the terrain so I'm glad we were only there for three days; I think we would have become a little bored if we were there for a week.
