South Africa – Cape Winelands

This ride is suitable for riders able to walk, trot and canter. They have a great range of horses suitable for different abilities and they are able to split groups to those who would like a faster or more relaxed pace. A big highlight of this ride is the wine and dinning and you will eat out at a number of top wine estate and restaurants, accompanied by Louis or Ellen who can help decide which wine goes best with each dish.

Hungary – El Bronco

There are 50 horses with about 25 suitable for guests; mainly quarter horses, paint horses and appaloosas. The horses were very well behaved and well trained.

South Africa – Wild Coast

This was an incredible trail, riding along the beach and through local villages inland. The riding can be challenging at times, scrabbling over rocks and with some steep descents leading the horses on foot. There are also a few river crossings that can be as high as the horses girth. There is plenty of fast riding with the opportunity to gallop on the beach. The horses are extremely fit and forward going, but also well-mannered and a pleasure to ride.

South Africa – Ant’s Lodges

In May 2015 I was lucky enough to visit Ant’s Lodges during the annual Game Census. Once a year there is a census to count the game on the reserve. Over the course of the week, there are various game captures so that Ant’s can ‘swap’ animals with other reserves.

Romania – Equus Silvania

Romania, and particularly Transylvania, was somewhere that’s been on my ever-growing list for some time. The thought of wide open spaces, no fences and a willing horse made me eager to visit Equus Silvania, the home of Barbara and Christoph Promberger.

Spain – Transhumance

A lovely friendly smile that goes into sparkling eyes always starts a trip off beautifully, and this is precisely the reception I received from Mamen at Madrid airport. I have to be honest too, it never faded throughout the whole week either, I was made to feel incredibly welcome and left feeling like I had made some lovely and kind new friends.

Experience Level

Montana – Nine Quarter Circle Ranch

In June 2016 I visited Nine Quarter Circle Ranch. It was my first time to Montana and I was spending a few nights at various ranches. The scenery hit me as soon as we were near West Yellowstone, dramatic snow capped mountains, twisting rivers and forests surrounded the winding road toward the ranch.

Experience Level

Italy – Castellare Di Tonda

In May 2017 I visited Castellare di Tonda and joined a four night short break. What I think is great about Castellare is that there are different itineraries to choose from depending on your level of riding and what you’d like to do whilst there.
