Sun and Riding

5 star rating   20 July 2022

Caitlin (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) A Perfect Week! | The riding and the horses all exceeded my expectations. No ride was the same and the variety on offer was great. They are wonderfully trained and cared for. [In The Saddle replies: we are pleased to hear that you had such a great time.]

Do you have any other feedback for us?

There was no real choice on morning or evening rides - it was assumed that children and families would ride in the morning and adults in the evening. This was easily rectified and i did ride twice in the morning after asking but it wasn't communicated to me at all at the start of the holiday.
