Sarah B - Horse Riding Holidays and Safaris

Sarah B

‘The South African adventure was another magical experience and particularly as I was able to share it with my daughter. The Lodge was an amazing base and our beautiful room overlooked the lake and dam. Watching an early morning muster from our balcony was a highlight as the sight of the horses coming over the dam as the mist rose from the water was magical. As was the sound of the hippos calling at night. The food, from our first lunch outside in the garden to our last amazing degustation dinner with wine tasting beforehand, was delicious and plentiful. The guides and volunteers that looked after our group were amazing in their ability to cater for every level of rider and each day we were divided into groups that enabled everyone to be within their comfort zone. There were therefore opportunities to ride at every pace, at speed through water and over cross-county jumps but there were also some magical moments of stillness when we just watched the animals in their natural habitat. Seeing my first giraffe and watching families of Zebra grazing and warthogs at play were truly magical moments. I was so impressed at how the wonderful horses we met were matched to the riders and I loved having the opportunity to ride a variety of different horses who were all responsive and fun to ride. The adventure was a very special and joyful shared experience that really was a dream come true.’
