Morocco, Royal Cities Ride - October 2017
“Chrissy and I had the most wonderful trip in Morocco, all went smoothly , and I LOVED it all, I wasn't expecting to get quite such a move on with the horses , Rena certainly didn't hold back, which was amazing , and it's really wonderful riding country , lots of lovely soft going for the horses for miles and miles !! Although very hot at times there always seemed to be quite a strong breeze .. Rena was utterly fantastic and looked after us so well, and it was great to see some interesting sights too and Fez is a fun place to visit. Thank you all at Ride World Wide for a really wonderful trip I'm on a complete high!” AB (Northumberland)

Morocco, Royal Cities Ride - October 2017
"Thank you Ride World Wide for yet another stunning adventure a wonderful insight into Morocco after 6 days riding in 35 degrees heat, some days 6 hrs in the saddle proving a real endurance test for horses and riders. Such an incredible country, great company as always a wonderful experience and great testament to Rena and her beautiful horses. Shukraan everyone...." CH (Hampshire)

France, Le Bourdil Blanc - September 2017
“It was superb as advertised and would highly recommend it to others… The horses and pace of the ride were great fun.” BS (Canada)

Spain, Can Muni & the Catalan Coast Mountains & Beach Ride -  October 2017
“loved it all, we had a great time and the group were lovely, we all got on and had a laugh and just a few drinks together. Paloma did say we were a great group but we weren't sure whether to believe her! We certainly all got yelled at at some time or another but we learnt that was just Palomas way. She was a good guide, we felt she really knew her business and we were so impressed with the horses who were obviously loved and well looked after. All the hotels were good, each different and so did some things better than others. I'd go back to any of them happily. Some fantastic views from our rooms and from the dining rooms too. The riding was beautifully varied from the hills, through flatter ground, the beach, orchards, wonderful views. Something different to look at all the time. Weather perfect.” CB (Nottingham)


Botswana, RAW Motswiri - September 2017
"Just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for organising our trip to Botswana! We have returned to something approaching normal now, but wanted to let you know that we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The horses were lovely, and in wonderful nick! The staff were super, with our guides Ryder and Witness taking excellent care of us both, and Trev (as a non-rider) had plenty to do and didn't feel left out in the slightest which was our main worry! This was number one on my "bucket list" of places to go, and it didn't disappoint! Cantering through the water next to giraffes will live with me forever, and galloping with zebra, and being chased by an elephant!!" JP (Suffolk)


Medieval Castles Ride, Santa Cristina, Italy - September 2017
“I think Antonio put in a tremendous amount himself and with the organisation and it would be hard to improve it. The leading of the ride by Antonio and his passion for the history of the area and the countryside, the personal tours by the owners of Castello S. Cristina and Proceno, the ride from Sorano to Proceno, the view from my room in the hotel at Sorano and the quality and variety of antipasti and pasta were all highlights. Please pass on my thanks to Antonio and the staff at S. Cristina.” TS (Gloucestershire)


Transiciliana Ride, Sicily - September 2017
"I have just come back from the Transiciliana ride with Franco and Paolo and had the most amazing week! The horses are all incredible and safe. We had some good canters and gallops but mainly we enjoyed the changing scenery over the six days. Great food, great hospitality!" AH (Leeds)


Portugal, Alentejo Coast - September 2017
“The scenery was stunning particularly by the coast. On the last day we had a very long canter that Paulo said was 3km long. That was the longest canter I had ever done in all my years of riding and I really enjoyed it. I also liked riding in the dunes. Everything was perfect. I could not fault it. I would definitely like to do this holiday again. They have everything very fine tuned here. The picnic lunches were lovely and very well organised by Claudia. Paulo is an excellent rider and leads the rides extremely well. The places where the horses are kept each night have everything required. Good horses, good tack. Transportation to and from the horses is very well organised. The restaurant where we had breakfast and dinner was lovely and have a lovely view. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming.” CW (Surrey)


Greece, Katigiorgis Ride - August 2017
Katigiorgis isn't simple to get to but is rewarded by total immersion into the local culture and a simple lifestyle. This simplicity was supported by the thoughtful, friendly and highly competent Eric. The little sandy bay is perfect for swimming and the views from the tops of the hills over the coastline and islands were simply breathtaking.
Highlights? The views over the coastline and islands, the kind, unflappable, surefooted horses, Swimming with the horses in the sea, swimming in the bay/pool (an excellent chill out place), and excellent sea food. L K-W (Notts)


Santa Cristina, Italy - August 2017
“We had a great time. It's a very good way to have a holiday in Italy and ride as well as sight see and hang around eating lovely food. Antonio and Christiana were very welcoming and friendly and it's well set up with good fast rides. A bit dusty and hot so three/four days were perfect.Thanks for arranging.” KW (London)


Georgia - August 2017
We got home yesterday after a fantastic time in Georgia. It exceeded all our expectations on every front - the landscape, the buildings, the people, the horses. We loved the fast riding, Levan was fantastic and we also loved the stops to see the monasteries etc i.e. regular culture shots. I fear we may have hit the heights in Georgia! RP (Shrops)
