The riding was fantastic... our guide Saphi was just the right amount of crazy while keeping everyone safe . It took me back to riding my ponies when I was a kid fun fast riding over miles of unspoilt countryside . I don’t think I have laughed so much on a riding holiday . My horse Junior was exactly what I had asked for small fast and fun I loved him . Despite the heatwave we rode in the horses were all happy fit and up for a gallop .
They all appeared happy and well cared for and knew their jobs and the whole group agreed all horses were well matched . It was an amazing experience on the last day when two people weren’t riding that their horses came loose with us back home as a herd . Saphi the guide clearly has a real affinity with the horses which was lovely to see.
This is excellent holiday for someone wanting some fun riding and escape the constraints of UK riding !

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The rooms are fine beds comfortable air conditioning excellent and much needed in the heatwave!
Showers fine but not enough hot water for all 8 to have shower after ride . Pool lovely though.
Food very variable. Breakfast fantastic stock up in the morning! Lunch’s in the woods cooked by the guides over a fire were excellent . But at other times was pretty poor especially at the ‘ spa’
Be prepared for a lack of vegetables! Take your own chocolate!!
The wine however is excellent and plentiful and the schnapps is fabulous but pretty potent ! All made on the ranch

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

The only thing I would add is to tell people to bring three times as much insect repellent as they would normally!!!
The spa is not a spa more a rehab centre !

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

No need was all great

Do you have any other feedback for us?

This is a fabulous holiday for riding , wine and fun but not a gourmet experience!!!
Don’t have high expectations of the spa !! It’s not great
The national parks trip is great stunning place
Take lots and lots of DEET the bugs are bad ....
