Riding Holiday Italy

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

This week Equestrian Escapes were in The Sunday Telegraph for their riding holiday Italy. This horse riding holiday had been noticed by Hannah Betts, a journalist for The Telegraph. She had stumbled upon the riding holiday when she decided she wanted to learn to ride.

She didn’t know of any better way to learn to ride than on a riding holiday in Italy with beautiful scenery and great instructors.

Initially, she was looking for a relaxing break away from work enjoying a new hobby but then she realised what a first class equestrian holiday this was and she wanted to share it with the world in an article in the travel section of The Telegraph.

Take a look at the riding holiday Italy article on their website -

If you call Equestrian Escapes on 01829 781123 they can check the availability on their riding holiday Italy for you and give you more information about their riding holidays as well as shorter breaks in Italy including horse riding weekends.

If Italy doesn’t take your fancy then why not take a look at Equestrian Escapes’ horse riding holidays Spain, riding holidays Portugal or alternatively their horse riding holidays in the UK.

Horse Riding Holidays Cheshire

Thursday, August 13th, 2009


Recently one of our horse riding holidays was featured in our local newspaper, The Chester Chronicle.

The riding holidays in Cheshire are proving extremely popular and currently we are sold out for August for our horse riding holidays Cheshire. Our customers are from all over the UK as well as customers travelling on our horse riding holidays Cheshire from as far afield as Saudi Arabia.

This boom in horse riding holidays UK is mainly due to the recession and fewer people wanting to travel abroad as well as people changing the way they holiday by taking weekends away and our horse riding holidays Cheshire are perfect for a riding weekend.

We offer family riding holidays, children’s riding holidays as well as riding holidays UK for couples, friends and single travellers. The riding holiday is not only great fun but also healthy as you can work off as many as 220 calories. Horses and Chocolate was the main horse riding holiday Cheshire that they reported but now we also have Horses & Spa and that is drawing a lot of attention.

What’s included in the horse riding holiday package –
2 night’s accommodation on B&B basis
3 riding opportunities
Afternoon tea at the Chocolate Shop

Riding Holiday

Top ten tips for the perfect riding holiday –

1.) Make sure you buy travel insurance. It is essential for all our riding holidays.
2.) Accurately tell us your riding experience so we can organise the perfect horses for your horse riding holiday.
3.) If possible purchase a pair of jodhpurs as jeans will rub your legs meaning your riding holiday will be less enjoyable.
4.) We recommend short riding boots or boots with a small heel (e.g – walking boots) for our horse riding holidays. Wellingtons and trainers should not be worn as they can slip through the stirrup iron.
5.) All the accommodation and stables used in our equestrian holidays have been checked by the director of the company so you can book with the knowledge that the horse’s welfare was our first priority for your riding holiday.
6.) Book your equestrian holiday through a tour operator as this means you are safe in the knowledge that you will have a stress free holiday.
7.) Book through a company that is ABTOT bonded so that you can rest assured that whilst you are on your riding holiday your money is secure and safe.
8.) If you want to bring non-riders with you on your horse riding holiday, ask us what activities are available in the area for them.
9.) Talk to the company you are booking the riding holiday through as they will no best which horse riding holidays will suit your experience.
10.) Most importantly enjoy yourself.
