Welcome to globetrotting.com.au
We’re a travel agency that specialises in horse riding holidays, horse riding safaris, horse riding treks and unique cultural horse experiences to all corners of the world.
I started Globetrotting ten years ago. It all came about thanks to a quarter-life crisis at 25. The catalyst was a 10-day horse riding safari in the Maasai Mara, Kenya, where I became entangled in the wildebeest migration astride a safari horse. It was this crazy, colourful, life-changing experience that resulted in me walking away from my business (Salt magazine), my boyfriend (now husband), mortgage and fleeing to a remote 100,000 acre estancia in Patagonia only accessible via horse.
For the next nine months I jumped from saddle to saddle, filling an unquenchable thirst to discover horse cultures in South America and Africa. When I finally returned home, I started Globetrotting alongside my business at the time, Salt magazine. I have since sold the magazine (in December 2015) to concentrate all my efforts on Globetrotting.
In 2016 we welcomed Globetrotting wonder woman, Laura Rae, to the team and she immediately became part of the family. You can read Laura’s story here.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, we know what makes the horse rides we offer unforgettable. We’re constantly researching new countries and rides to make sure that we 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 our 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 adrenaline. 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 we specialise in these countries because we know them inside and out and this country list will continue to grow.
It must also be mentioned that we have formed close relationships with all the people who operate the horse rides on offer. However, we also remain totally independent and will give you honest and impartial advice as to which ride will suit you best. Since we don’t run the horse rides ourselves, we’re free to provide you with an unbiased, genuine opinion of each.
We can also advise on flights, travel insurance, visas, accommodation and suggested itineraries to do before or after your horse riding holidays.
