New Year Horse Riding News 2010

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

In the run up to Christmas we have been working very hard at increasing our range of products. Our UK portfolio now offers additional tours in Berkshire, including riding in the Windsor Great Park. You will be staying in a relaxing Spa hotel where you can treat yourself to a massage or a swim in the hotel pool. Another new UK break takes you to Shropshire where you can follow in the footsteps of the legendary horseman Jack Mytton through spectacular riding country. Also Ride the unspoilt beaches of Portugal, Brand New 2010.

Jumping is a fantastic pastime

A nice day for jumping

Our full list of UK riding breaks is now quite extensive and there is something for everyone whatever your level of riding. We can offer tuition, scenic hacks, beach riding or any combination.

If the UK weather is getting you down we have also added new tours to our European list. Why not have a look at a break in the sunny Andalucian region of Spain, Riding Holidays Andalucia. We can design a bespoke tour to meet your individual requirements or one of our set itineraries may catch your eye…

Spend Your 52 Weekends Wisely

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.
