Michael (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Holiday of a Lifetime | Super horses, well cared for and well led.

Good variety of riding experience from ambling walks to exciting canters. Appropriate rest periods and refreshments along the way.

Great tack and stabling.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

I was very well looked after in 'original' accommodation. Service was superb. Food individually cooked and absolutely no instances of upset tummy.

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

Pre holiday info was great, including good responses to emails and telephone enquiries.

Given my experience 'self booking' in Delhi, it might be wise to warn travellers of the dangers of local taxis - the prices quoted for 'your' overnight stays are quite high, but worth it. You might want to consider offering a cheaper option for a stay near the airport (and Delhi is so congested that sight-seeing is difficult if you are time restricted).

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


Do you have any other feedback for us?

Now I have caught up with myself, I'm going to attempt to do a blog

I can't be more positive about my in the saddle experience and holiday overall and would like to back this up with some photos (I took a good camera and am pleased I did, though now I have over 500 photos to sort through!
