Jule W - Horse Riding Holidays and Safaris

Jule W

‘Just got home from a dream vacation to Scotland! Along with some wonderful old friends, and lots of new ones we enjoyed a week of amazing horses, scenery, and tradition on the Scottish Borders ride. I don’t think I ever stopped smiling, and will treasure these memories for a lifetime! The accommodation was absolutely lovely – from the celebrity chef-prepared meals to the nightly chocolates on our down pillows, it was luxury living! The staff there took impeccable care of all of us. We also fully enjoyed our Scottish night filled with traditional Scottish games (and men in kilts!), a bagpiper, and a full haggis presentation (which I surprisingly ended up enjoying!). The hosts were top-notch as well. Gemma was consistently enthusiastic and engaging and did a great job matching each rider with the perfect horse. The horses were all fantastic – I rode 6 different ones and each one was wonderful in their own way. The Kelso Common Ride was something I’ll never forget, with almost 9 hours in the saddle (and a drizzle rain most of the day) – and I never stopped smiling! Galloping the beach in Dunbar on a full sun day was also a day to remember. Scotland is a painting everywhere you look, with green fields, stone walls, gurgling streams, sheep, quaint villages and cottages, and castles in all directions. I’m ready to go back!’
