Tricia Huerta – guided

‘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. Miles and miles of grapevines, with incredible light filtering through the trees and amazing wine by the barrel – probably what you’re expecting when you hear the word ‘Bordeaux’ – but now imagine you’re on a horse. TEN MILLION TIMES BETTER. From riding through centuries-old fortresses and hand-walking your horse onto a ferry deck, to galloping through dense forest and picking grapes straight off the vines as you ride by, this ride will have you looking for real estate in the south of France before the week is out. Our hosts were beyond accommodating and ran the trip like a well-oiled machine, without making it feel like they were at work. The horses were extremely well cared for and had plenty of personality to keep the ride interesting, with amazing boldness – they didn’t put a hoof wrong. I recommend this trip not just for its delightful scenery and divine food and wine, but mostly for its hosts, as they have incredible stories to tell, care about their team – human and animal – and clearly love what they do.’
