Tracy (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) The best holiday | Ailsa our riding guide was lovely and fun. She is so experienced she gave us the perfect horse for our ability. I trusted my horse completely which made the week stress-free and memorable. The rides were so scenic and enjoyable. I would go back tomorrow if I could! She made our holiday one to remember. I didn't want to leave.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Food lovely but I think the HB menu for vegetarians was a bit sparse and found opting for the extra off the HB menu options by the end of the week. But we weren't there for the food but the riding. If I was forced to give any negative feedback that's all I can come up with!.

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

Can't improve it! I was completely confident that I had all the kit I needed thanks to your pre holiday info and the travel info pack I received in the post with all our personal flight details etc was the icing on the cake. Then I got a phonecall the day before from Becky to check I had no worries etc so I knew everything was going to be perfect!
