I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Beautiful countryside and a rustic, authentic venue. The horses were well trained and well cared for.
It is good for singles as there are other people around and you are not on your own. There is limited time to do your own thing.
The local village seems involved in the centre and employs locals.
Great riding holiday, stress free in a beautiful setting.
Definitely, the best aspect of this trip was the horse riding. The horses were healthy and well-behaved. Riding along side sky-high cypress trees, between rows of vineyards, and past ancient ruins and rural villas was quite an experience. The pace was comfortable - with plenty of lively canters!
We stayed at the riding center in the owner's restored family home. My sister and I shared a room that overlooked the stables. We fell asleep to the gentle sound of nickers.

The beautiful countryside.
Bring some fly spray for the horses.
Yes to both.
Excellent - amazing scenery, very good horses, lovely people and very good value for money.
Every minute was memorable and exciting! The horses, the views, the people, the food - all lovely. (more)Jane Fox
I loved every moment of it. It felt really special and actually quite an achievement to be part of something like a transhumance, which is steeped in so much tradition. (more)Kate Moore
Most memorable was perhaps climbing to what seems like the top of the world on horseback, arriving at a mountain refuge in a cloud and then realizing the stupendous view in the morning.
I would rate it "best ever"! We had the chance to ride beautiful and reliable Marwari horses, the Indian guides travelling with us were amazing, we were served delicious Indian food and slept in stunning locations.
It was a fantastic 2 weeks with amazing interesting people, I made friends for life and saw a part of rural India I would never have had access to without the trail devised by Jonny and his friends.
Firstly the service from the tour company! Big, big Thanks :-)
Secondly, the horses, especially the horse ride to the lake camp. (more)Katharina Duske
It was a great adventure trek over the mountains (5000 m at one point!) - absolutely fantastic. (more)Richard Katesmark
We enjoyed it all but mainly the sensation of peace and space in the mountains. (more)Christine Dautheribes
Just seeing the kind of terrain that our horses could cover was one of the most memorable parts of this holiday. The scenery was incredible, as was the attention that we received from one of our guides. (more)Stuart Whitby
It was a marvelous adventure with a good mix of environments. The views across the plains were spectacular. So was riding along the rivers and lake-side. (more)Andy Williams
On the day that we rode to the reindeer people, we went up, and down, a mountain covered with the most delicate pine trees, and the forest floor was carpeted with flowers...It was like being in Fairyland.
A fantastic place which lived up to my expectations. (more)Katherine Amos
Excellent. This is a fine place to stay! With lovely people and surroundings. The best parts were riding in unknown rural France with horses up country tracks and beneath trees in occasional woodland. Meeting other riders and brushing up my French whilst the instructor brushed up my riding skills! (more)Liz Beaven
Tips for other travellers? Stay an extra week!...Ten out of ten. (more)Sue Evans
Galloping along the sand on Christmas morning
Make sure you can ride and are used to several hours in the saddle at a time
Superb (more)jane cartwright
