Azores

When people ask me how to describe the Azores, I say MAGICAL!!!
The Azores is like no other country I have ever visited. It’s a volcanic island and every corner of the island has something different to see.

Botswana – Tuli Trail

In May 2016 I was very lucky to be able to do the Tuli Trail in Botswana. This safari is still so fresh in my head and I do not think I will ever forget all the amazing herds of game and wildlife.

Experience Level

Ecuador – Andean Adventure

We feature three exciting trail rides in Ecuador, the Colonial Haciendas, Andean Adventure and Volcanoes & Vistas rides. All feature fantastic riding on well-schooled horses, spectacular scenery and a good dose of adventure. But how can you choose between three such great options?

Experience Level

Colombia – Barichara Ride

I was caught totally off-guard by Colombia’s beauty, diversity and the incredible friendliness of everyone we met along the way. Highlights for me were riding through rural villages and towns and seeing local life along the way.

Experience Level

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.

Experience Level

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.

Experience Level

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.

Experience Level

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.
