Travel Blogs & Comments of the moment

Romania, Transylvania - April 2017
“There were many highlights of the trip. The scenery - riding in such open country and the guest houses as well as meeting local people and eating in their homes. They were very welcoming. Daniel the guide in Bucharest was very helpful too as was Anna. Everyone was so helpful. And the efficiency of all the arrangements. We try not to compare our riding holiday experiences but this was certainly one of the best. Thank you very much for all your work.” JC (Somerset)

Argentina, Estancia La Rosita - April 2017
“The staff at La Rosita and the effort they went to on my birthday was touching. The polo match was funny as was the whole trip. Fernando was so much fun. The whole experience was great - I loved it - very authentic and true. Rosie was great on the lead up." KD, (Suffolk)

Portugal, Alentejo Coast - April 2017
“The countryside we were riding through was beautiful and at the time of year we rode there were many wild flowers. The variety of riding – coastal paths, dunes, cork forests and eucalyptus plantations – also made the ride very enjoyable. Claudia, Paolo and the rest of the team could not have looked after us any better. They were so friendly and wanted to make sure we had the best possible time. The horses were super – and I appreciated Claudia’s questions when we arrived to ensure I got a horse of a type I liked. Claudia’s mum’s restaurant was a great place to eat – and the lovely ladies who looked after us there were very tolerant of our non-existent Portuguese!” AH, (Devon) 
 

Spain, The Valleys of Gredos - April 2017
“It was all absolutely excellent – so well organised, great company, fabulous rides and of course horses; stunning scenery; amazing food and attention to detail…. Really absolutely fantastic. Maria is such a special lady – determined to bring out the best in everyone, game for anything, lovely, witty , charming, generous, patient, dedicated…. A total pleasure from start to finish and we all loved it…” EW (London)
"Thank you for recommending this amazing ride to me. Definitely one of the best I've been on." DA (Switzerland)

Seville, Trails of Andalusia - April 2017
“The ride was even more splendid than I expected. The riding, the scenery and the places we stayed in just got better and better, it was a totally brilliant holiday.” Highlight of the trip was the town El Rocio, riding through the beautiful flower meadow and the Dona Ana National park. Maria Elena was just outstanding and her team really made the trip.” CN (Oxon)

Portugal, Alentejo Coast - March 2017
“So much was a highlight! The horses were wonderful. The scenery was fantastic. The food was exceptional. The hospitality was superb. I can’t think of anything that required improvement. Paulo and Claudia took my daughter and I on the complete ride even though there were only 2 of us! A memorable mother / daughter trip! Thanks for your help as I find RWW to be thoroughly professional and most importantly, familiar with the rides as your staff is able to participate on them!”

Portugal, Alentejo Coast - March 2017
What in your opinion were the highlights of the trip?  “Comfortable, fit and ever-willing horses.  Always ready to pick up the pace, but also completely controlled on the beach in an Atlantic gale. Great riding and varied scenery.  Sandy tracks went on forever and you certainly need to be riding fit.  The trail format works really well. Excellent food.  Such variety and tasty home cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Not so sure about the octopus, but all part of the experience! Above all amazing hospitality from all of the team.  Only wish we’d learnt a bit of Portuguese. We will long remember the final ride home in a gale force wind, when we deferred lunch and rode hard but the horses still didn’t
put a foot wrong all day.” GW, (Suffolk)

Morocco, Golden Sands, Agadir & Atlantic Coast Camping Adventure - February 2017
"“We had a fantastic time, Rena could not have been kinder to us or the horses, the route was fab, loads of cantering and different terrain interesting, too, to have an afternoon in Tiznit. It is the best holiday I have had for ages.” SF (Sussex)

Morocco, Golden Sands, Agadir & Atlantic Coast Camping Adventure - February 2017
What in your opinion were the highlights of the trip? “Getting to know Rena, her horses and staff.
Sharing this passion and joy for horses and riding with nice people from other countries.
Riding marvellous, happy horses, they were so willing to gogogo. Endless fields of flowers and bushes for long and fast canters. And of course the long beach-ride was really something, so many kilometers empty beaches, ideal for horse-riding. Amazing!
Camping was quite basic. First camping-night we got heavy rain. Those tents are not the best for rain, but very soon Rena and boys came to cover all tents by big plastics. They really took good care of us, all the time. It was very nice there were three hotel-nights. Renas normal shower-system was not in use. Broken? Our “shower” was in a horse-trailer. :D Our normal life is so easy, sometimes it is just good to try how much you really need. I was quite proud I could wash myself and even my hair with very small amount of warm water in a horse-trailer. We really enjoyed hot showers in hotels, in Tiznit and Agadir! I thank you all at RWW, it was worth of going to wonderful Morocco! (ER, Finland)

 

South Africa, African Explorer Safari - February 2017
“I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday – it was really very good indeed. The horses were great, all the staff really looked after us (we were very well guided, fed and ‘watered’) and my fellow ‘holiday makers’ were also great fun. I earlier completed a feedback form for Lindy for the Limpopo Horse Safaris part of the trip, however, I would also like to compliment in particular our Horizon guides, ‘Ishveer’ and ‘Deon’ (I am not sure of the correct name spellings) who played a significant role in making the holiday so good - it was like riding out with a couple of interesting friends (in fact I would go as far to say that Deon was probably one of the most interesting people I have ever met). But please do pass on my thanks to all the staff (including the transport drivers) for making the holiday an exceptional trip.”
