Guided Rides FOR 2019 & 2020

Firstly, let’s explain why you would choose a Globetrotting guided ride.

A lot of our globetrotters are solo female riders who may not have the confidence to travel by themselves. They prefer for us to take the guesswork out of travelling to an unknown country – so they can TRULY relax on their holiday of a lifetime.

Our guests love that we take the hard work out of travelling – for example, when flying into a foreign country, we’re there from the get-go. We meet you at the airport (or co-ordinate our international flights together) and that’s when you can relax and let us hold your hand throughout your trip.

Before starting our ride we always spend two nights in the capital city. We avoid staying in generic hotels, preferring boutique hotels situated in charming suburbs. With limited time to spend in the city, we know the best restaurants, artisans and authentic cultural experiences trademark to that country.

What if your transfer doesn’t arrive on time? What regional airport do you need to arrive into? Where can you find an ATM? Don’t worry about it; we take care of all these boring travelling woes.

Steven and I are both photographers and are quite adept at taking photos of our guests on horseback. With us holding the camera, you can truly enjoy the moment rather than fiddling around with your camera. When you get home we’ll send through an online album of images and a video clip of your journey. This part of the package is priceless.

We make sure you’re ecstatic with your horse, the pace of the ride and your saddle.

It’s our job to know what drink you yearn for after seven hours in the saddle, if you have milk in your tea and to make sure your dietary requirements are met.

We want you to absorb the country’s culture. It’s our aim to ensure you become intimate with the culture and experience every facet of its people, food, landscape, history and horses – warts and all.

You’ll be with a group of like-minded travellers. We’ve found our globetrotters all share a love of horses, travelling and adventure and are looking for a travel experience that is lasting and out-of-the-box. It warms my heart when globetrotters who meet as strangers become firm friends through the ride and go on to travel together to other riding destinations.

So in a robust nutshell, those are the reasons you’ll love our guided Globetrotting holidays.

Now without further ado, here is a list of our Guided Rides for 2019 and 2020.

We can’t WAIT to ride alongside you.

MEET OUR GUIDES

  • KATE PILCHER

    our founder, has been roaming the globe on horseback for a third of her life. Before Globetrotting was born, she worked as a horse-riding guide in Kenya and Argentina, and speaks conversational Kiswahili and Spanish. She has an intimate knowledge of the destinations in the Globetrotting portfolio. Globetrotting is Kate’s life calling and she is passionate about sharing this mode of travel.

  • LAURA RAE

    is the jewel in our Globetrotting crown! We discovered Laura through an internship in 2016 where she opted to learn the Globetrotting ropes with a trip around Canada and America. Laura grew up on a sheep property near Mudgee in country New South Wales and has been closely connected to equines her entire life. She rides like a BOSS, she’s a 2* eventer and connects with ALL of our globetrotters. We’re super proud to have her in our GT family and she’s an expert at finding your perfect-match riding holiday.

  • STEVEN PILCHER

    began his Globetrotting career in Kenya and has since notched up countless rides from Iceland to Morocco. Steven learnt to ride as a child on the dusty plains of Nindigully in western Queensland. When Steven isn’t in the saddle he’s trigger-finger-ready to capture the amazingness of rides via camera and drone. He sometimes does all this while also wrangling three spirited daughters.

WHAT OUR GLOBETROTTERS SAY ABOUT OUR GUIDED RIDES

Tricia Huerta

‘Riding through the Bordeaux region with the Globetrotting crew, every day is a surprise. You’ll think ‘It can’t get better,’ and then it does. This ride will have you looking for real estate in the south of France before the week is out.’

The Sahara Ride, Morocco - Globetrotting horse riding holidays

Jacqueline Hogan

‘How privileged I was as a solo traveller to join Kate, Steve and Laura in my choice of destinations, Morocco! The Globetrotting team excelled on all levels, and never missed crossing the Ts and dotting the Is. They are all such genuine, honest horse enthusiasts, and so passionate about what they do. Words can’t describe the exhilaration, fun times, great laughs and memories that I took away from that trip and it’s all thanks to an amazing team who are doing what they love and have an innate ability to leave a lasting impression on the hearts of all their globetrotters.’

Niki Zubrzycki

‘The Scottish Borders Ride was amazing. Our horses were so honest and solid and looked after us all so well. It has been the most liberating thing I have ever done. Huge thanks to Kate for creating such a magical experience and for being there with us for all the fun. And to my Globetrotting companions on this mad adventure, who made it so incredible and full of joy!’
