5 star rating   31 August 2023

Alison who has been on 11 In The Saddle rides. Wonderful horses, brilliant people, amazing experiences | Asked in advance as to what type of horse we would like, given a "briefing" on the horses' personality before going on a ride and asked for feedback after rides to make sure we all matched our horses.
The horses are well loved and very well cared for, with individual plans for feeding etc even though there is a large herd.

Guests dine together and main course for lunch and dinner usually self serve so guests can have as much or little as they want. Always a wonderful variety of meals across the week. Lunch is my favourite meal - for the amazing bread!

We first went to Horizon in 2004 as a couple and have returned twice now with our two teenage boys. Laura and Shane have managed to retain the wonderful homely feeling whilst expanding and improving the offering. The whole team from the management through to the guides, stable team, the chefs are genuinely friendly, happy and can't do enough to make you feel at home. Seeing the horses so happily wandering freely around the ranch is one of the highlights of the stay. All that capped off with the wildlife and amazing African scenery - just perfect.
[Becky from In The Saddle replies: Thank you very much for your feedback and it's wonderful to hear how much you enjoy returning to Horizon! How special.]
