Wolves and Wild Horses

5 star rating   5 November 2022

Rosemary who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Wild landscape, well-schooled horses | The pace was generally walk due to the very beautiful but rough terrain. Canters were very speedy in contrast.

Ideally I would have more change of pace but that's no complaint, just an explanation of the score above.

Pedro kindly lent me gloves when the weather got cold. I hadn't realised I would need them. We rode in double socks that day.

The family were great hosts, especially regarding the riding and our needs / happiness with our mounts.

Accommodation score not perfect as

1. Due to the change in weather we were cold in the house on a couple of evenings. Another time I would take a rug for the sofa.
2. A radiator leak soaked my leather half chaps.

Before Your Holiday

Did you have all of the information you needed to:

Plan and prepare for your holiday?
4 star rating
Feel comfortable about your transfers and what to expect?
5 star rating

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

Tell me I really need gloves and warm socks and not to ignore the advice which I think was in the pack. The challenge is that the pack said to take swimming gear which obviously needed ignoring

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

All good
I did have the chase a response on airport pick up time but its not like we could go far.
