Breath of the Highlands

5 star rating   29 July 2023

Susie who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Incredible holiday | The riding was incredible.
Fantastic forward going well trained ponies and great fun to ride the different gates of tolt and to get a go at the flying pace.
Gracina who was our ride leader was exceptional. She briefed us every time we rode a new pony (I rode 9) and advised on their way of going and how to get the most out of them.
Super people skills too. Very definitely in charge but caring and great company.
Helga the co owner of Hestasport also rode with us and was equally supportive.
Amazing to ride with the herd. Not an opportunity you get to take many times in your life.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

As a party of 3 our accommodation was a bedroom above the main communal kitchen/dining room for all riders. I noticed others had self contained lodges, including another party of 3 and one of 5.
A self contained lodge would have been preferable but in no way detracted from the super holiday. The food was amazing!
