Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

The first Sunday Times of 2010 proudly recommended how it’s readers should make the very most of their few and far between Weekends this year! With exciting breaks lined through all the seasons, Equestrian Escapes Riding Holidays acheived a warm spot in the beggining of August. 

The 6th – 8th was set aside for our Shropshire Riding Break, a hack along the long-distance bridleway named after a local horse fanatic, the infamous Mad Jack Mytton. The Eloquent Shropshire Weekend is Equestrian Escapes very own custom tailored weekend break in which you can ride the very same bridleway. 

This serves as a good example of the  standard that Equestrian Escapes offers. With over 60 breaks available and more on their way, check out our Sitemap for Horse Riding Holidays that will suit you.

An Interesting Tale

Mad Jack famously won a bet by riding into a respected hotel in Leamington Spa, the Bedford Hotel. He rode up the grand staircase, onto the balcony and jumped, clinging to his steed for dear life, over the diners enjoying their meals in the restaurant below and through a window back onto the street.
