Pushkar Fair - India

Pushkar Fair Forts & Palaces full ride

5 star rating   8 November 2019

Hilary who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. A real gem | It more than met my expectations. I did not realise that marwari horses are fantastic endurance horses and the soft tracks are ideal for long canter and gallops. It made up for the serious disappointment of Romania which, though riding endurance horses, is comparatively slow.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

The itinerary is less strict than normal as the routes are dependent on what tracks are open or closed. Camping sites may have to change because of conditions, e.g. dried up lake is not as dried up as it has been.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

This is the first time it was unclear whether the ride was going ahead or not. I felt I had to chase to find out the status rather than kept informed.
Olwen from In The Saddle replies - I'm sorry it felt you had to chase. We should have been keeping you informed regularly as to whether or not the ride was going ahead.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

The sightseeing part of the holiday was well organised with excellent guides and comfortable hotels.
The tipping guidance was very useful.
