Globetrotting horse riding holiday Glenorchy Back Country Ride, New Zealand

Desiree Charlesworth

‘The Glenorchy Back Country ride is a MUST DO ride.  Each day just got better – every scenic vision was amazing. The guides were up there with the best and went above and beyond for their clients. This ride is now equal favourite with my all-time high of the Namib Desert Ride… I didn’t think that would ever be possible. But this ride has everything, so it deserves it.’

Heather Wallach

‘I came to riding later in life. This ride introduced me to experiences I have never been exposed to previously. Partaking in activities such as barrel and flag racing and polocrosse increased my riding confidence. Fiona, Paul, Sally, Keith and all the team where so hospitable and friendly, making this a truly memorable experience.’

Annie Kilgour

‘A truly amazing ride! Our hosts, Jen and Jeremy, were fabulous, their horses were amazing, the scenery was breathtaking, the food and wine were oh so good, what more could you ask for! This ride has it all. Enjoyed every minute and would go again tomorrow!’

Annie Kilgour

‘Your website is easy to use, you are available to speak to whenever we feel the need, and you follow up, which is fantastic.
Also, you are all so passionate about each and every one of your holidays, and that enthusiasm passes onto your customers. I had been looking for a long time for a company like this and to find you here in Australia is fantastic! You guys are great and I love these holidays! Keep up the great work!

Sherri Hazzard

‘Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Jen and Jeremy and the Globetrotting team for hosting such a wonderful holiday on The Grape Horse Adventure in the Barossa Valley. It simply was amazing! It was a privilege to ride such beautiful horses. The scenery was spectacular, as was the food and wine. We had a fabulous group of people and I learnt so much about natural horsemanship. I hope to join the team on the Tassie Tiger Trail in the future.’

Globetrotting horse riding holiday dressage in Andalusia, Spain

Laurel Hosking

OMG this ride was so good! I had a brilliant time and met so many new faces, all with a common passion for riding. My ride was half dressage and half trail riding – which was a huge step for me as I’ve done very little dressage, but I learnt heaps, had lots of fun, and at no stage felt left out.

I was so nervous about travelling on my own but there was no need to be, everything was taken care of. The accommodation and food were brilliant and we were looked after so well.

Advice to others considering this ride: firstly, try to be riding fit – I was and it paid dividends; pack light and pack your sense of humour; and be prepared to have the best time possible.

 

Globetroting horse riding holiday Catalonia

Merrita Coombe

‘So lucky we got to go on the exploratory ride in Catalonia, Spain and meet the Globetrotting team. I absolutely loved my horse, the guides were fantastic in every way, and the food was fabulous! So good to have local produce and wine at every meal. The picnics were particularly memorable! Such a dedicated, professional and fun group of people. I am definitely recommending Globetrotting to all of my friends and can’t wait for my next ride.’

Jane McDowell

‘A group of US career women, ranging from 30 to 60, from nervous beginners to old pros, from never left the country to seasoned travellers, most of whom had never met, decided on a whim to take the trip of a lifetime together – with Globetrotting. And WHAT A TRIP. Globetrotting listened, selected the ideal trip, held our hands, answered all our questions calmly and patiently, recommended outstanding guides, helped with extra curricular activities and followed up at each point of the trip. We enjoyed every second of our ride – and travelled home feeling as if we had conquered the world. THANK YOU, Globetrotting, for a simply incomparable CUSTOM experience. We will all be back.’

Margaret Poulter

‘I followed Globetrotting for 2 years before committing to my first ride, which was absolutely amazing! Horse care is number one priority for me, as well as pairing riders to horses. I have been so happy to find all the horses so well trained and so well cared for. I have now completed 2 Australian rides and this year will complete 2 overseas rides. I am feeling confident and excited, as I know these rides have been tested by the GT team, and I have every confidence I will have the time of my life and make amazing friends and memories.’

Lisa Harris

‘Globetrotting does the work and takes the guess factor out of choosing superlative rides all over the world. The quality of the hosting companies, the horses, the terrain, the safety, and the overall ‘wow’ experience is all checked out by this fantastic team, so all you have to do is choose one for yourself and relax. Having done two rides with GT and booked a third, I can’t see any reason to look further for our riding adventures.’

Ariane Pickering

‘For me, it’s all about trust. Trust that it is a reputable outfit you are riding with. Trust that the horses are well trained, well cared for and both mentally and physically fit. Trust that the accommodation will be as described and the food will be good. And trust that the guides will be fun, safety conscious and willing to help in any situation. I have done riding holidays arranged by 3 different organisations and Globetrotting is the only one I trust to ensure the perfect ride.’

Rebecca Clemmey

‘I refer people to you because you have personally ‘curated’ and test-ridden an amazing range of rides all over the world and there is something for everyone. I also like that where possible, an attempt has been made to accommodate non-riding partners. I love the helpful, enthusiastic people on the end of the phone or email – you know you’re in good hands when someone else is that excited for you!’

Sheryl Germany

‘Excellent customer service on every level. Horses and trips that you have personally been on and thus know they are great quality.
Unique trips that are not offered anywhere else. A genuine desire to provide the best of everything  giving all the info needed, offering options, taking our requests seriously.
The booking process and payment options make it easy.
What’s not to like!’

Allison Howard

‘I liked the abundance of information about the area of each ride, climate info, trek operators, gear lists. It makes the whole experience more enjoyable. You are so approachable and happily answer questions. You’ve done the treks so you can give a personal recommendation.’

Mary-Jane Pell

‘The GT difference is everything… from sending our info to the ride outfitters ahead of time so we get a perfectly matched horse, to packing lists, videos, the works. You engender trust. It would be easy to book a ride anywhere in the world and know we would be getting the best!’

Anastasia Miros

‘High quality service and authentic experiences for horse lovers. The service is timely, responsive and personable (i.e. building trust, ‘no request too big or small’, building community before, during and after the ride, and regular customer engagement). The experiences are authentic: the ride write-ups are believable and we know they have been road-tested, and there is a level of trust that it isn’t ‘over-exaggerated’ or a nose-to-tail ride.’

Claire Dennerley

‘It’s being able to trust that you’ll provide a quality experience that is true to your word – when you say ‘You’ll see glaciers’ – man… there were glaciers! Attention to detail (I can’t think of anything that hasn’t been considered!) and excellent service – essential to keep people happy!’

Jacqui Shannon

‘I enjoyed the information leading up to the ride, the emails, the group messages and the private Facebook group. No question is a silly question.
There is so much risk to take when booking a ride, especially as first timers, but once you get connected to the group, you get a sense of relief and the excitement kicks in. Everything is so well organised and surpasses your expectations. And the pairing of your horse is incredibly well done!
It’s definitely unique and very trustworthy to book a ride, as well as to continue your GT dreams and book future rides with friends made for life.’

Wendy Cobb

‘I loved your hands-on and personal approach to every detail. From experiencing the rides yourself, to the great detail provided for every trip, that not only includes the horses and country for each ride, but also information about the staff and the overall experience. The personal contact from the GT staff always made me feel extremely well looked after, with any question answered comprehensively. I’ve been on two GT trips and hope to do more, and most of all I love the way your love of each individual ride and experience shines through.’

Madison Allen

‘I especially loved the personal treatment that the company gives. The messages before the ride to see if we had any questions, the quick replies and just the general helpfulness and cheerfulness of you all.’

Globetrotting Sahara horse riding holiday in Morocco

Lee Powrie

‘Amazing, challenging, extraordinary. In every way. So many highlights: the view from the top of the pass when we walked our horses, the beauty of the sand dunes, the goats on the hill running up to us at the camp, the way my horse Zeina turned her head to me when she heard my voice as I walked up to her. So many times I felt I was in a time warp – back in old testament days, horses, desert, stones, sun, and not much else – a beauty so stark it was other worldly.’

Julie Aitken

‘I had the most amazing ride to Craig’s Hut in the Victorian High Country. The scenery and views were absolutely spectacular and our hosts Christian and Laura were fantastic. A huge thanks to all the staff Gwen, Lou, Sarah, Ray and Dean – they were the ones who made it happen for us every day, so thank you all very much, you did a fantastic job. And a huge thank you to all the guests on the ride – you were all lovely and made the trip most memorable and enjoyable.’

Michelle Klocek

‘My first Globetrotting experience, and I chose to do it in my home country. It was truly amazing. Jess and Bijmin are the most amazing young people, their horsemanship, care and local knowledge is exceptional – I just loved the two of them to bits. They are funny, clever, and were so patient and professional with everybody. They command respect without being overbearing, always happy. For me they came equal to our beautiful back yard. And they fed us to bursting every day!!! The weather gods didn’t exactly play fair, but that’s not unusual in our mountains, and when the rains stopped and the rivers dropped sufficiently to do safe crossings (river flow records were broken), Jess, Bijmin and Natalie guided us through some of the most stunning scenery in New Zealand. Put this ride on your to do list – you won’t regret it.’

Roger Meulan

‘A big thanks to Paul and Fiona, Keith and Sally, the wonderful girls, Jack the dog and Rosie the kangaroo, who arrived most mornings for a snack. A truly wonderful experience.’

Robyn Smith

‘I highly recommend this ride for people looking for a relatively easy ride with creature comforts and good food. The scenery was great and the horses worked well in a group. Michael did a good job with everyone – he was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and safety was never compromised.’

Chelsey Hammond

“Jenny and Jeremy went out of their way to ensure I had a fantastic time, which has certainly rebuilt my riding confidence! I have amazing memories and experiences from the ride.”

‘Horses were superb and beautifully trained and cared for. Trying polo was great fun. Guides and gauchos lovely and great to ride out with. When the rides were pacey and varied, they were fantastic.’

horse riding holiday Craig's Hut & High Country ride Victoria, Australia

Sharene & Russell Duncan

‘Every day on our ride was amazing and it is hard to think that any one day was better than another. Our hosts Christian and Laura are exceptional operators and we felt really comfortable with our guides. Their knowledge of the country and history was great and we loved listening to their stories of the High Country. All of our guides were attentive and always looking out for the riders’ safety and comfort. Their sense of fun and humour was second to none. There was heaps of banter, songs around the campfire and just plain good fun.
This was the first holiday that my husband and I have had alone together ever. It is hard to get him off our farm and away doing something we both enjoy. This ride was perfect. He is still showing people photos whether they want to see them or not. We are still struggling to get back to our ‘normal life’, and are most definitely planning to join the Kimberley Ride next year and are also looking at more rides the year after.’

horse riding holiday Glenorchy Back Country Ride New Zealand

Emily Perkins

‘The Glenorchy Back Country Ride was beyond all my expectations! The scenery was absolutely spectacular, photos and videos just don’t do it any justice. Upon meeting my horse, Slim Shady, I could tell my ride was going to be even more memorable.We clicked instantly and he was one of the best horses I’ve ever ridden. This was a very organized ride with Jess and Bijmin as our guides and cooks, they did a fantastic job and I cannot thank them enough! My favorite day was when we got to swim the horses in the lake. I’d never been swimming with a horse before, and experiencing this for the first time with amazing scenery was something I will never forget! I made some amazing friends along the way as well, and cannot wait to book my next ride! Rated 10/10.’

horse riding holiday in Sierras Chicas, Argentina

Claire Pollock

‘My ride in the Sierras Chicas, Argentina was fabulous. It was all amazing, however the polo days were a standout! The hosts, Lou and Kevin, went out of their way to ensure that I had a fantastic experience on the polo field. All the horses were fabulous, especially the Peruvian Pasos – so much fun. I wanted to bring a gaucho saddle home with me, they were amazingly comfortable, and the food and accommodation was amazing! You are certainly never going to go hungry whilst on this trip.’

horse riding holiday Margaret River

Jo Clemens

‘Every day of the Margaret River Ride was perfect. It was a special mother daughter bonding holiday. To be able to have one-on-one with my 13 year old daughter is extremely rare, so we both loved every second together, sharing our love of everything horsey.

We loved Jesters Flat glamping and the dining room. Paul and Fiona and Sally and Keith were lovely. We learnt so much about the bush, the area, history, culture, polocrosse, horses. Sally and Keith did an amazing job with feeding us all.

The horses were educated and fantastic. My daughter rode George, who was an absolute gentleman, and she fell in love with him after day 1. I rode Poppy. We had very similar personalities, so we got along perfectly and both loved the polocrosse!

Those 5 days with my daughter will be cherished forever. It is the start of many more special mini-breaks together.’

Sue Nittyaho

‘It has to be the trust factor. We know that all of the rides have been tested by you. Therefore we can book with confidence in the knowledge that we will have the best outfitters and guides, sure footed and cared for horses that are matched to our abilities and we can trust them. We don’t have to do the research… you already have.’

Roz Beinke

‘Every possible base is covered with lots of information so you can feel confident you are being looked after in every way. The rides are interestingly and often passionately explained in detail so anybody can feel confident that whatever is chosen, is as spot on as possible in this ever changing world.’

Jo Booth

‘I have made some friends for life (whether they want that I am not sure) and travel buddies whenever I need any. I am single no more in the travel sense. My bucket list is now endless and the planet has opened up in the most beautiful way. I get to see it from between a pair of horse’s ears.’

Sarah Mostyn

“The comprehensive communication in the lead up – extensive packing guides, details about what to expect on the ride and all the helpful tips from gear recommendations etc to the Facebook page as a way of communicating and sharing the experience with others.”

Rosemary Batty

‘The Victorian High Country on horseback has been on my bucket list for as long as I have lived in Australia (30 years). It was everything that I had hoped it would be and more. I am so pleased that I got to do this with such a professional outfit and I’m already planning my next trip with Christian, Laura and their team because I know I can trust and depend on them. They really care. Not just about the horses, but our experience too – they are very genuine and authentic and that makes the whole time you’re with them even more special. There were times when the sheer joy and beauty of the trip brought a lump to my throat – I didn’t want my 7 days to end.’

imagined!”
