Julie who has been on 9 In The Saddle rides. Icy cold outside but a warm glow inside | Less riding than on most ITS holidays but we knew that before we went. Riding the little Icelandic ponies above the arctic circle surrounded by beautiful snow covered scenery was a real treat. Learning how to tolt from the experts was really good.

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

You could make it clear that extra days for travelling at either end of the holiday are essential.
[Becky from In The Saddle replies: Thank you very much for your feedback. Sometimes the flights from the UK mean that additional nights are possible but this isn't always the case. We are always happy to go through the options for specific dates :)]

Do you have any other feedback for us?

We were made to feel very welcome by the whole team at the stables. I was impressed that although the local food is heavily meat based they provided a vegetarian option for 1 of the group for every mealtime. The other activities were well organised and good fun.
