“Far and Ride is the best! ”

Written on: 19/06/2016 by Milton170 (1 review written)

She is very passionate about what she does! and really knows each destinations well. She is genuinely interested in making the best match between a rider and the destination. She clearly loves horses, and people who like horses! Not only did she help me choose the right destination, she also helped me prepare and train well for the trip as my canter skills were really rudimentary at that time. During the trip, I forgot my wallet at one of the stops; a cab had to be hired to retrieve the… Read Full Review

“Enjoy a relaxing holiday!”

Written on: 11/06/2016 by juanhendrawanputra (1 review written)

We decided to use Far and Ride and they did a great job helping us to choose our trip. We needed a short riding trip in Portugal and in the end decided to go to La Quinta (Riding in Portugal). Far and Ride always communicated step by step very clear and make life so much easier for us. The place we went was excellent and matched our expectation. The horses are great, the host are friendly and relax, the food was excellent. Nothing is less than perfect. I highly recommended far and ride to my… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2016 by KimberlyMiddleton (1 review written)

Recently my friend and I booked and went for our first riding holiday weekend in Portugal with Far and Ride. We are both experienced riders and were looking for somewhere to go for long hacks. We had a very pleasant experience with Far and Ride. Right from the beginning, our emails and queries are always answered promptly and thoroughly. This was good as before we made our purchase, we did asked a lot of questions regarding the different riding holiday destinations in Portugal (i.e : what are… Read Full Review

“Fantastic holiday”

Written on: 03/05/2016 by Sarahderb (2 reviews written)

Just returned from a short break in Portugal booked through Far and Ride. Had an absolutely fantastic time at Pine Trees Riding Centre. We were thoroughly looked after and enjoyed a very hospitable break here. Even though we only had 2 full days, we fitted loads in, including breakfast, a riding assessment (to see our level of riding and to match us with a suitable horse), lunging, trail ride, trip to tack shop, looked at a Lusitano for sale at a nearby livery yard, lunch, riding lesson, swim… Read Full Review

My holidays have varied from cheap and cheerful weekend in Ireland to luxury three week trip in South Africa, and have received same knowledgable and friendly service every time.

“Friendly and helpful service”

Written on: 11/04/2016 by ZarahHornett (1 review written)

I have booked two horseriding holidays with Far and Ride now - one to Croatia and one to Portugal. Initially I was a tad anxious as I am a middle aged lone traveller with fairly beginner-level riding skills - neither my husband nor friends are 'in' to riding. I had worked out that many of the glamorous & lengthy trail-style trips were beyond my skill level and fitness. I received excellent information, advice and support from the team. They are very knowledgeable about the holidays on offer as… Read Full Review

“Wouldn't go anywhere else”

Written on: 04/04/2016 by willjerabek (1 review written)

I have booked a number of trips with Far and Ride now and have found the service nothing less than exceptional. The team are supremely knowledgeable about their industry, simply can't do enough to help and love what they do. I have always been a problem child for them; either booking from overseas, at the last minute, or wanting completely bespoke, and they've never failed to provide the most fantastic holidays. From a week set itinerary in Jordan to 3 weeks of ultralux safari and everything… Read Full Review

“Fantastic travel agent for horsey pursuits!”

Written on: 03/04/2016 by Lorenzod1979 (1 review written)

I've booked several holidays through F&R and have always received superb service. Every holiday has been exactly as described, and the few times I've enquired about holidays I may not fully enjoy, I've been gently steered towards more suitable options with full explanation. I find this especially important when booking riding holidays, as you wont enjoy your stay as much if you are too far above or below the general experience level. I'm very detail oriented, and often have list of million… Read Full Review

“A great company to book with”

Written on: 01/04/2016 by AmeliaDaly461 (1 review written)

I have now booked three trips with Far and Ride and each time the level of customer service has stayed just the same as that of my initial email of interest. I can't fault the staff who have to deal with constant queries when you are planning a trip and in the excited 'must know everything about the place' stage. They have the patience of saints. The descriptions of the holidays are great and give you a real insight to what he holiday will be like. With a big birthday next year I will without… Read Full Review

“Amazingly friendly, helpful and passionate staff”

Written on: 31/03/2016 by Wyatt277 (1 review written)

I have booked three week long horseriding adventures in three different countries with Far and Ride. Each time has been a pleasant and easy process, via email. The girls in the office are very prompt at replying to emails and have a thorough knowledge of the rides they sell, which makes it easy to decide what is right for you. They stay in contact and check you have all the information you need until the ride itself. The rides have all been excellent, and led by well-run establishments that I… Read Full Review

“Great company, would highly recommend”

Written on: 29/03/2016 by Veradepera (1 review written)

I went on one holiday booked via farandride and it was definitely smooth sailing all the way. The contact I had with one of their employees was great. She helped me pick a fitting ride and organised pretty much everything. I was helped in a professional but personal way, which I think is great (some companies will treat you like a walking wallet, but this is luckily not the case with farandride, it felt more like a friend sharing her tips on where to go for awesome holidays). The trip itself as… Read Full Review

I have used far and ride for two holidays and have two more booked with them. I particularly like the personal level of service and the quick responses to any questions I have. When deciding on a holiday the staff have been helpful, advised and guided me and never made me feel like a pest despite bombarding them with questions! They always check I have everything I need and when I had a problem on one holiday they helped me resolve it immediately. They are the only company I will use for my… Read Full Review

“Gold standard in service”

Written on: 29/03/2016 by tishwoody (1 review written)

Far and Ride organized our honeymoon and were faultless from start to finish. It was a totally bespoke trip and they went far above and beyond their remit, even helping us book the beach bit of our trip (which had nothing to do with horses) and organize our transfers and accommodation/restaurants is Nairobi. They were accessible 24/7, really understood what we wanted and I couldn't rate their service highly enough… Read Full Review

In the space of 12 months I embarked on 5 different horse riding holidays.. need I say more?!?! Far and Ride is a personable and super friendly family business that demonstrates the true meaning of excellent customer service! They are extremely thorough and full of knowledge, not only on horse related topics but on all the destinations they offer riding holidays. Whilst traveling alone to all 5 destinations I always felt well prepared and safe thanks to the Far and Ride team. On top of all… Read Full Review

“An Evocative and Well Organized Adventure”

Written on: 19/02/2016

I was looking for a riding holiday in South Africa for my adult daughter and myself. Due to her work schedule the potential ride was a bit tricky to organize. After checking with my usual "go to sites" I came across Far and Ride and what luck. Although we hail from the US there was not one problem in communication with the staff of Far and Ride. In fact it was excellent. Everything from the first email, to the final payment was handled quite easily. I truly apprecaited the hard copy that… Read Full Review
