Los Alamos - Spain

Villa Based Ride

5 star rating   29 August 2021

Vivien who has been on 40 In The Saddle rides. So good to be back | We all rode a variety of horses in order to help get them back to full match fitness after their extended break. This meant I added yet another horse to my long list of favourites. Little Hercules - really soft mouth, so light on his feet and very responsive. What more could you ask for. It was so good to ride Rachel's amazing horses again.

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

All the extra paperwork/tests in the current situation is a bit of a faff but as long as you've got it all organised, it seems to run smoothly (it did for me anyway). It just felt so good to spread my wings and go on a proper holiday again and what better place to go than Los Alamos. Just the break I needed after the strangest 18 months.

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

All good and grateful I could change my original booking dates due to government restrictions with no hassle.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Really hope international travel continues (and gets easier) and we can carry on going on these great holidays again.
[Becky from In The Saddle replies: It's so lovely to hear that you enjoyed your holiday to Los Alamos and that everything went smoothly with the testing/paperwork.]
