Horizon Horseback - South Africa


5 star rating   29 June 2019

Sue (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Awesome riding experience....heavenly! | The horses were excellent and bomb proof. Horizon takes very good care of their horses, which is nice to see. I loved the long canters too and all the pretty scenery. It was very relaxing and the guides were super. They all had fun stories and a good sense of humor. Can not say enough good things.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

I was the only guest this one week and loved it. I got to know the staff well and had lots of fun and good chats. Everyone at Horizon had such a nice cheer about them all the time that was very authentic. I could tell people really enjoyed working there. I got an upgrade too, which was awesome. The food is outrageously yummy! I think I even gained a pound or two. The chefs rocked it. The atmosphere is very relaxing and a wonderful time to decompress from the stresses of every day life. If I lived closer to South Africa, I would go back every year.

I thought you guys did a super job. You could not improve in my eyes. Great customer service. Imogen is very accommodating in every way. I wish all tour operators were like In The Saddle.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

I have gotten In The Saddles news letters for over 5 years and finally did a trip. I can not say enough good things about my experience. It was a total highlight.
