Wilderness from the best seat in the house

OUR HANDPICKED HORSEBACK JOURNEYS
It is said that ‘in riding a horse, we borrow freedom’ and we like to think that’s true. Only on horseback do you get the true sense of an environment, whether that’s galloping across Namibia’s endless sand-scapes, watching soaring condor in the silence of Patagonia’s dramatic emptiness, or quietly approaching a herd of zebra in the Masai Mara with your senses on overdrive as you watch for crouching lion.

Four legs are certainly better than four wheels when it comes to getting off the beaten track too. How else would you wind your way up a forgotten Andean track to deliver livestock to an isolated village? Or traverse the Indian desert, past forgotten temples and shimmering historic forts, taking medical supplies to remote communities in need?

Yes, with confidence we can say that with no engine noise, virtually no environmental impact and almost no terrain restrictions, when it comes to experiencing the world around us, the saddle is the best seat in the house!
