My first globetrotting experience was in Kenya, June 2005. This was a horse riding holiday that transformed me forever and changed my view of travelling indefinitely.
That one horse riding holiday became the catalyst for a year of travelling on horseback through Chile, Argentina, Kenya and Botswana. I jumped from saddle to saddle, filling an unquenchable thirst to discover foreign countries and cultures off the back of a horse where the pace is slower and the experience richer.
Since returning to Australia it was a natural progression for me to specialise in horse riding holidays in Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Chile and Argentina. I’ve been fortunate to spend a lot of time discovering various horse riding safaris in Africa and South America and leading groups of up to ten riders throughout these countries. So, I know what makes these horse rides unforgettable. I'm constantly researching new countries and rides to make sure that I have the best selection of horse riding holidays and horse riding safaris on offer.
The properties that are listed under each country are all unique in their own right. In my opinion they are the bee’s knees of horse riding safaris in the world. Each establishment achieves the perfect balance between intelligent horses, spice of culture, shifting and challenging landscapes, colourful characters, foreign wildlife and a pinch (sometimes a handful) of adrenalin. Remarkable horse properties that are run by people that truly understand what their fellow horse people look for in a horse riding holiday.
Please note that I specialise in these countries because I know them inside and out and this country list will continue to grow.
It must also be mentioned that I have formed close relationships with all the people who operate the horse rides on offer. However, I also remain totally independent and will give you honest and impartial advice as to which ride will suit you best. Since I don’t run the horse rides myself, I’m free to provide you with an unbiased, genuine opinion of each.
I can also advise on flights, travel insurance, visas, accommodation and suggested itineraries to do before or after your horse riding holidays.
