Provence Trails - France

Luberon and The Camargue

5 star rating   27 September 2019

Lorraine (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Amazing | Riding was amazing, but I could have done with a little smoother horse as mine was a little small, almost a pony and tended to have a choppy gait to him. Also he tended to be a typical pony, hard headed and stubborn. He was a Camargue horse so I did appreciate getting to ride a horse from the region I have read about and have had a life long dream to see. I had a concern that the horses didn't seem to get enough water over the course of the days journey and it was quite hot in some spots.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

First accommodation food was very plain and the mattress for the bed was almost non existent. First hotel had a great atmosphere, but again a very hard thin mattress and the room had no windows so I had to leave my door open so I could get some kind of ventilation in the room as it was very hot and stuffy.

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

A little more detail in packing requirements would have been nice. ie whether to take as little as possible or is a regular suitcase fine. Now I know for next time.

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

I had lots of trouble with my bank trying to do an etransfer because of the currency exchange. I would much prefer just a straight Visa payment plan.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

I had a great amazing time overall and will be booking another one in the future.
