Nile Explorer – Uganda

I accompanied the first In The Saddle group to Uganda in June 2016. This trip gets 10 out of 10 and I found it very difficult to make any suggestions for improvement – except perhaps to say that I ate too much but who is to blame for that!

Experience Level

Punjab Rides – India

Just writing up this itinerary filled me full of excitement as it was clear there was just going to be so much to see and experience. I accompanied the first group on the Hola Mohalla ride in 2016 along with 9 guests.

Experience Level

Provence Trails – France

The question given to me was whether I would like to “visit Provence, riding through the Rhone Valley, across Les Alpilles mountains and end up galloping on a beach in the Camargue”. Of course my answer was a resounding “YES PLEASE”!

Experience Level

Kalahari Safari – Botswana

The Kalahari makes you feel very small in the grand scheme of things as everything around you is larger than life and endless. The Makgadikadi Pans stretch out in front of you into infinity, and you would think you were on the surface of the moon except for the scorching desert heat.

Experience Level

Macatoo – Botswana

I know that I am in Africa immediately, as stepping into the airport at Maun my body is immediately in shock at the sudden African heat (something a fair skinned English girl is unused to after the British winter). But boy was it lovely to be warm and see the sun shining.

Experience Level

Namib Desert – Namibia

The Namib Desert Ride is more than a riding holiday, more than the sum of its parts – fast riding, camping and long days in the saddle – it is an experience like no other.

Experience Level

Bahia Beach Ride – Brazil

We really enjoyed all of the horses that we rode – being polo ponies they were super-easy to ride – willing and forward-going but with good brakes, which was great for the canters along the never-ending beaches.

Experience Level

Tour Israel – Israel

As I left Tel Aviv airport building the sound of the birds hit me. There are two trees either side of the doors and they were full of little sparrows, all tweeting like mad! What a lovely welcome to this country!
