Equus Silvania

5 star rating   28 August 2021

Ingrid who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Here it was probably my own fault that I said I was a little excited about having to ride big horses, I am used to Icelandic horses. Because I was not afraid to ride them, I thought I should push a lot on them in walk, but they were ok in trot and canters. I tried 4 horses and there was not really much difference on them. Well behaved, did what was asked of them. I'm just used to horses that are very progressive. Basically I am satisfied, I could completely relax on the horses.

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

The man at the airport who was going to pick me up did not have a sign with the writing: “In the Saddle” instead it said: Horseback riding or something like that, so I walked around for 15min before I asked him.
[Becky from In The Saddle replied: Thank you for letting us know and we will certainly look into this for future reference.]

Do you have any other feedback for us?

It has been a really lovely riding holiday, really good and strong horses, really beautiful and varied surroundings. The riding guides were competent and super kind, and it was really good with the guide Marius on our sightseeing trip, he knew a lot and showed us some nice places. Even though there were only two of us booked for this week, others joined us on the day trips, and there were many other people at the place that we socialized with.
[Becky from In The Saddle replied: We are so pleased that you enjoyed the riding.]
