African Explorer - Botswana and South Africa

African Explorer

5 star rating   19 April 2024

Margaret (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) African Explorer - Really Great Experience | The horses were fabulous, well cared for, well schooled and happy to work. The riding was varied. There were few extended canters due to other group member rider ability limitations but overall a really good mix of riding.

Horizon were not aware of my medical condition. Wasn’t an issue but wanted to flag that this may have gotten lost in communication on the booking.
