The Great Trek – Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is an incredible country which not many people have heard of. When I was told I would be riding there, I had to check the map myself. Near China, I discovered this mountainous country to be friendly, beautiful and just perfect for riding.

South Africa – Cape Winelands

One of the great things about our ride in the Cape Winelands is that you can arrive on any day and stay for as long as you like – ideal for those who really want to immerse themselves in wine tastings, glorious food and fabulous riding.

Wait A Little – South Africa

Africa does tend to seep into your veins and often once you have visited this astonishing continent for the first time, it is almost like a poison in which you feel the need to go again and again – you just need to get yet another fix of her formidable sights, sounds and experiences.

Experience Level

Alcainca – Portugal

Breakfast of coffee croissants and the signature Portuguese custard tart with delicious flaky pastry at 7.00am on Tuesday 4th April in the arrivals hall of Lisbon’s International Airport was the start of our “magical month”. Well ten days really. We were on our way to the School of Equitation at Alcainca in the small village of Alcainca 25km northwest of Lisbon Portugal.

Experience Level

Quinta do Rol – Portugal

In October 2016 I visited Quinta do Rol a lovely family estate in the ‘orchard of Lisbon’. Here I discovered excellent instruction and gorgeous Lusitano horses, so well-trained that they are a treat to ride.

Experience Level

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

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.
