“Riding Trail in Hidden Italy”

Written on: 22/11/2014 by HappyinaSaddle (1 review written)

Finding Far and Ride was a stroke of luck! I have been on other riding holidays and the travel companies have all been well organised and helpful, but the team at F&R went out of their way to give a personalised service and to ensure we had all the information we needed. The trip notes were comprehensive and any forms simple to complete. F&R are a small family run outfit and it is obvious they really care about their clients, as well as the riding outfits they book for. We were lucky enough… Read Full Review

“Great Team at Far and Ride”

Written on: 13/11/2014 by KingEdwards289 (1 review written)

Had a wonderful horse trekking experience in the South of France all organised by the wonderful team at Far and Ride. Everything was organised through email, they were always quick to respond and very helpful if we ever needed any questions or help. Most of the ladies we were speaking to had been on many horse trekking experiences before so knew what to expect and to give advice on things such as essentials to take with us. Just after we paid we got sent a lovely package with a recommended list… Read Full Review

“5 Star Service”

Written on: 08/11/2014 by BHedin (1 review written)

I had never booked a riding holiday before and only had a short amount of time to do so. Being from the states and Far and Ride being in England, She was so accommodating to my needs and time frame which was quite impressive given our time zones. Not only was I sent on the most freeing riding vacation but I felt like Far and Ride really knew how to match me with the perfect holiday. They were always accessible and responsive and proactive in providing holidays that I hadn't thought of but fit… Read Full Review

“Riding in Sunny Sicily”

Written on: 06/11/2014 by Miles455 (1 review written)

I generally found everyone that I spoke to at Far and Ride to be very helpful, any query that I had was speedily answered and resolved. I got the impression that the staff go out of their way to make sure that you have all the information that you need. The general information that they provided as to what I needed to take with me, what clothes would be useful based on what we were likely to be doing was very useful. This was only my second time on this type of holiday on my own and all of… Read Full Review

“Sardinia”

Written on: 05/11/2014 by RossStu (1 review written)

We went on our first riding holiday with Far and Ride. We were quite a spectrum of experience, from competitive eventers to beginners, but we were catered for really well. The pre-holiday information was great, the booking experience brilliant, and the holiday itself fab! I'd have no hesitation recommending Far and Ride. I hope to go again with them in fact!… Read Full Review

“first riding holiday”

Written on: 05/11/2014 by Gaynor33 (1 review written)

I have wanted to go on a riding holiday since I was a child.. im 43 now.. we had the chance this year and my partner and I looked at holidays all over the world. I started in the US, then Canada.. but we only had a week so decided long haul wasn't an option. I contacted Far and Ride and asked a LOT of inane questions, all of which were answered quickly and comprehensively, with suggestions for options to suit us.. I am an experienced rider but my partner is fairly novice, so we wanted a holiday… Read Full Review

“You can trust what they tell you about a ride”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by Vivian483 (1 review written)

Far and ride were very quick to respond to us, answering our questions within the day. Nothing was too much trouble and the information they provided us was spot on. They sent us details when they said they would and all staff that we had contact with were professional but also friendly and personable. I felt we could trust them and our experience of the ride reinforced that. They were also very quick with post sales care as well as post ride care which I think is great. Very impressed with Far… Read Full Review

“Excellent organisation and service”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by BryanSD (1 review written)

We arranged a stay at the Southern Cross Ranch in Georgia with Far and Ride and enjoyed a fantastic time whilst there. The riding, facilities and in particular, the food were outstanding. Our prior concerns about my wife's nervousness after a couple of previous unfortunate rising experiences were recorded by the company and relayed to the ranch, who could not have been more supportive. Their efficiency in the whole booking process was excellent. I would have no hesitation in utilising Far and… Read Full Review

“Excellent,friendly company”

Written on: 27/06/2014

Having been on riding holidays with several companies,though all have their plus points,Far & Ride is definitely a cut above. A very good range of deatinations & varied types of ride. What I especially like is that,if you have a question,someone emails back very quickly,& the answers seem personal-they take the time to find out(in my case,I wanted to know the local weather that week in Italy & they actually phoned the hosts abroad to ask). Descriptions & info are accurate,& they sent a… Read Full Review

“Kupres Farm Bosnia”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by Morrislz113 (1 review written)

I have just returned from Bosnia which was my third time with Far and Ride.Each time the staff have been really helpful and have taken any stress out of travelling to new destinations with all the attention and information given. I can really recommend Kupres Farm in Bosnia for a great budget riding holiday. The people were brilliant, the horses very forward going (with some slower ones if you wished) and they were very well looked after. The food was great with about 30 trout being cooked on… Read Full Review

“Excellent, professional service”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by Sonnetcooper (1 review written)

We have just returned from our third holiday booked through Far & Ride. One was for just myself & my husband, who is a non rider and two were as a family of four. On the holiday as just a couple, my husband was well catered for. The holiday in Portugal was excellent with amazing food, nice long walks, an infinity pool and my husband even had a go at carriage driving On the two family holidays, one in Spain and one in France, both my husband & my 15 year old son as non riders still found plenty… Read Full Review

“Wonderful, Personalised Service!”

Written on: 23/04/2014 by hollybaird (1 review written)

I have booked 4 holidays now with Far and Ride and could not be more impressed with their excellent service. I have travelled once on my own, and before I departed I was given exact details of transfer arrangements and also what to expect upon arrival. My email enquiries were always answered accurately and promptly and I felt like I was having a conversation with someone who was genuinely concerned that my holiday should be amazing. Before I travelled I found the booking process to be simple… Read Full Review

“Excellent US Ranch Holiday”

Written on: 02/03/2014 by droyce (1 review written)

Just returned from a fantastic 9 days at Southern Cross Ranch in Madison, GA. The ranch was very relaxing, accommodation (bedrooms) were good and there were a number of separate communal lounge areas with a well stocked DVD cupboard. There was a good choice of horses available (over 60 guest horses and over 200 in total) which were matched to riders depending on ability. Horses were well looked after and staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Riding was mainly on woodland trails - mainly walk… Read Full Review

“Fantastic!”

Written on: 10/02/2014 by urszularussek (1 review written)

Far and ride was absolutely fantastic with arranging my holiday. They were very accurate with the description of the training centre where I was going and I was nicely surprised my expectations were met and in fact exceeded. It took Sally from Far and Ride only half a day to arrange everything for me including finding suitable flights to and from the destination I was going. I had never had a holiday arranged in such short time! Sally kept in touch with me prior to me departure and immediately… Read Full Review

“Fabulous riding in Jordan”

Written on: 10/02/2014 by Caroline95 (1 review written)

Just returned from a fabulous time in Jordan. Could not recommend it more highly. Travelling as a single woman I was a little apprehensive but everyone was extremely friendly and helpful and I never felt uncomfortable. It was a great mix of culture and riding. The guide and the horses were fabulous with some great rides and some amazing views. January can be a cold month but the weather was great with temperatures of around 20 degrees during the day and beautiful sunny skys - the added benefit… Read Full Review
