Other Ideas & Special Rides
As well as the standard riding trips featured on this website we have other riding options that might suit those with a particular interest and we will also once again, be offering several special rides. Some of these are with dedicated trip leaders meaning that not only will you benefit from the experience and knowledge of your local guide, but you will have the advantage of travelling with a private group of like-minded riders under the careful guidance of a well travelled and entertaining host.
SPECIAL RIDES 2017
TANZANIA, Serengeti Exploratory with Kaskazi Safaris & Tristan Voorspuy - 1st to 9th March
Two of our top safari guides are leading a NEW mobile ride across the rolling plains of the Serengeti ecosystem, aiming to catch the famed wildebeest migration.

INDIA, Punjab & Holla Mohalla Ride - 12th to 21st March
From the noise and bustle of the Holla Mohalla fair to the peaceful countryside where farmers work the land as they have done for centuries, the Punjab is a region of great diversity. Join Nigel’s group on a NEW ride with guide Bonnie Singh and his wonderful Marwari horses.
PORTUGAL Combo Dressage & Beach Ride - 8th to 15th April
A special combination to make the most of Portugal’s horses and landscapes. Kick off with dressage lessons on a superbly schooled Lusitano at Solar de Espirito Santo, where the teaching is top class, yet relaxed. Then head to the Alentejo coast for some chilled-out coastal living and beach rides.
ARGENTINA, Estancia La Rosita - 19th April to 1st May
The Corrientes province - an unspoiled land of lush green pampa and water meadows, where gaucho culture is integral to life. Traditional ranch living, with picnic rides, cattle work and the occasional polo chukka by day, and the company (and excellent beef!) of your gregarious hosts by night.
