‘This ride was endless fun. We were blessed to encounter a lively group of fellow Aussies and Brits who were all happy to enjoy a laugh. The scenery on this ride was sublime and jaw-dropping. Being able to trot, canter and occasionally gallop through vineyards and the French countryside was thrilling and a real privilege. The wine tasting was lovely – we learned a lot and were introduced to delicious, affordable wines that we were able to enjoy over generous and yummy meals. The accommodation was varied and gave us the chance to interact with locals and experience a slice of their lives – I really enjoyed the language barrier and having to be creative in communicating with some hosts. Finally, and most remarkable, were the horses. My horse, Qasino, was the most gentle-natured, willing Thoroughbred you could hope to meet. Qasino did not put a hoof wrong and I felt he really enjoyed the journey as much as I did. Qasino also liked to lead the pack when given the chance and was bulletproof to dogs and other noises we’d encounter on the road. Qasino stole my heart… he’s a really kind-hearted horse and if you have the pleasure of riding him you will have a brilliant week.’
