Sam who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Amazing! | All the horses are so well cared for. A huge range of horses. The riding was out of this world. It exceeded my expectations for sure!

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The tents were lovely and the beds very comfortable. Hot water bottle at night time was very much appreciated as it got quite cold this time of year. Tea/Coffee brought to your tent every morning was great. The shower water was sometimes cold but I guess that’s to be expected when your are out on the Delta!
[Becky from In The Saddle replies: Thank you so much for letting us know about the water. We've passed the comments onto Macatoo and they have been able to fix the water issue. The water is heated by a solar system but there were a number of tree braches in the geyser. These have now been removed and the foliage has been trimmed back to prevent this happening again.]

I was quite concerned that I would end up being ill due to my dairy allergy however the wonderful ladies in the kitchen produced me excellent food each day and I was not ill once.
