TRAIL RIDING HOLIDAYS
A trail ride is a journey on horseback – each day different to the one before – as your horse becomes your means of transport. Within Europe you might choose holidays in Bulgaria, Crete, France, Iceland, Macedonia, Montenegro, Portugal, Rhodes, Spain, Sweden or Turkey. Further afield there are exciting trail rides in Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, India, Israel, Jordan, Morocco, Peru, South Africa, eSwatini, Uganda and Uruguay.
WHAT TYPE OF RIDER DO I NEED TO BE?
As trail rides tend to cover longer distances most days, you need to be a competent rider at walk, trot and canter out in the open on a well behaved horse. You do also need to be physically fit since the option for a day off isn’t easily available. Some rides will have longer hours in the saddle when compared with others; some will be faster with plenty of fast canters; others mainly at a walk due to the mountainous terrain through which you travel.
WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT IT?
The wonderful sense of achievement on reaching your destination each day and at the end of the week; of completing the journey; the many special memories of the places you have seen and people you have met along the way.
Useful Tip: Pack light – you won’t want to have to carry a heavy bag in and out of your hotel each day and it will make getting ready to leave each morning much easier.
