Wild Coast - South Africa

Wild Coast Adventure Trail

5 star rating   27 October 2018

Mags G who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Wild Coast | The horses were extremely fit, going on for long canters again and again. They were well trained and a pleasure to ride. The accommodation was friendly and comfortable and the food good. Our guides, Melanie and Caty, were friendly, competent and good fun! The views, scenery and seas were spectacular. We saw whales and dolphin as well as many birds. This is the best ride I have been on (out of five ITS holidays).

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Food can be a little stodgy, but when you've been on a horse, riding fast, you deserve it! Some of the hotels are well off the beaten track.

Amazing! The trail saddles are somewhat different to English saddles. Don't worry about your bum touching the cantle, as if you're too far back, you're not. Once I overcame this ghost of an early riding instructor, I was much more comfortable!
