“Excellent booking service - reviewing prior to holiday”

Written on: 17/07/2017

I cannot fault the service at Far and Ride at all. The staff have been absolutely amazing and very engaging. They understand everything we require and are happy to help with even the silliest of questions. It really helps that they have been on the rides themselves, at least in our case, and I am full of confidence that we will have an amazing holiday - will be reviewing again upon our return. The level of dedication to each customer shines through with every correspondence. We are so… Read Full Review

“Best holiday ever and the views were exceptional ”

Written on: 12/07/2017

I booked my birthday riding holiday to the Canadian Rockies with this company and was very impressed with the way the whole experience was dealt with. Right from the start the lady was extremely helpful from my very first enquiry right the way through to the days leading up the actual holiday start date she helped and advised with flights, transfers, hotels etc and was always on the end of the phone or email with answers to any questions I might have. The holiday was everything I had hoped and… Read Full Review

“Friendly Knowledgable Service”

Written on: 03/07/2017 by Newton60 (1 review written)

I organised a riding holiday in Portugal for myself and my husband(non rider). From the first contact Far and Ride could not have been more helpful. The web site is very easy to use and any questions we had were answered very quickly. The company was really good at staying in touch and making sure that we were prepared for the trip. The holiday was just as described if not better. Will certainly use Far and Ride again for my next riding holiday… Read Full Review

“My favorite operator for now! I wish I've known them...”

Written on: 27/06/2017 by qbBarnes429 (1 review written)

At the first contact, I felt the staff members were just very friendly and patient. Then I felt they were more than that with warmth and sincerity. After I booked with them for the first ride which became one of my best rides, I felt so satisfied. I came back to them requesting for another similar ride. That's when I felt their passion and love about horse riding like me and I started to like them so much. I like the frank way they said "I've been to that ride....", "I've been to that ride… Read Full Review

“Knowledgeable and helpful advice ”

Written on: 27/04/2017 by JennyMS (1 review written)

Far and Ride could not have been more helpful when booking my holiday to Sicily. A member of their team had been and ridden with Ride Sicily so could answer all my questions from first hand experience. The website was informative and easy to access, also the description of the tours was accurate. I felt confident in their service and would recommend the company to anyone interested in riding holidays… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/04/2017 by MartinWeatherhead (1 review written)

Far and Ride organised a superb riding holiday for us in Sicily. They listened to what we were looking for and perfectly matched our needs with a riding tour organised by their partner in Sicily. The excellent relationship between Far and Ride and their partner meant that they were able to make the trip bespoke to our abilities, needs and dates. This was the second riding holiday we had that has been arranged by Far and Ride and at all times we have had such great communication and clear… Read Full Review

“Brilliant service and knowledge ”

Written on: 06/12/2016 by Martange (1 review written)

I contacted Far and Ride for ideas and information on a short riding break in Europe. The staff were very helpful, and offered several options...all of which they had personally visited so could speak of from experience. Once I had booked had to change dates duets flight cancellations and this was no trouble to do. The information pack sent out was comprehensive and very useful, and I believe that if there had been an issue once on the break then the back up and support from Far and Ride would… Read Full Review

“Everything went to plan, and what a great plan it was ”

Written on: 29/11/2016 by Tioramhelen (1 review written)

I'd recommend Far and Ride to anyone looking for a riding holiday. They are very friendly and approachable, they gave us all the information we could possibly need and all their arrangements went smoothly. Our riding holiday was superb and absolutely lived up to what we were promised and more. Now I've found them, don't think I'd consider looking anywhere else for a riding holiday. But lookout Portugal is very hot in September!… Read Full Review

“An excelletnt experience and holiday - thank you!”

Written on: 25/11/2016 by AndreaL13 (1 review written)

Had an excellent holiday with Far and Ride in September; it far exceeded my expectations. From start to (beyond the!) finish, the service and information provided from the team was excellent; it was very detailed, helpful and I felt that there was nothing more they could have added. It made the whole experience very easy. They went above the call of duty advising me on travel plans, and helped me with alternative arrangements. Transfers were smooth, the hotel was even better than described… Read Full Review

“Lusitano ride, Portugal”

Written on: 25/11/2016

Administration was very good, host and staff welcoming and expert. The horse I was allocated was the best I've ever ridden, so well schooled and obedient, yet enthusiastic and willing. I've owned Arabs for years and am now converted to the Portuguese horses. Food was excellent, as was the range of terrain we rode across. Can't praise it highly enough. Weather was unseasonably hot, so the 42 degrees day was a bit of a struggle, so will go a couple of weeks later next year… Read Full Review

Please can you tell me what month you did this holiday?
Also, were your lessons with riders of the same level as yourself?

I'd be grateful for any info you can provide

Written on: 05/11/2016 by Emily_Canada (1 review written)

Far and Ride went above and beyond in every way. My recent trip to Ireland was everything I dreamed it would be, and I had high expectations. She treated me as an individual from an international Skype call, to the wish list of things I hoped for. I plan to book many more trips through her and would not hesitate to tell all my friends to as well. Couldn't be better!!… Read Full Review

I'd used other agencies before  I found F&R several years ago and can categorically say that these girls are the best of the lot. Nothing is too much trouble from finding the right kind of faster riding i love, to answering my innumerable questions. The choice of riding holidays is huge and they are all personally vetted so I trust the staff's suggestions. The prices are realistic too. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

Well priced holiday and ourl transfers were easily booked as well. I will book all future riding trips through far and ride and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to… Read Full Review

“El Bronco - amazing riding holiday”

Written on: 14/09/2016 by kkg003 (1 review written)

Far and Ride is a great travel agent to work with. She was much help making sure I was well-prepared and got a great room at the ranch. She was patient with my plethora of questions, and there were no details left out during my stay. I will definitely book with Far and Ride again. For El Bronco, let me start by saying this was the best riding holiday that I've been on. The #1 highlight is the quality of their horses. I'm a Texas western horse person, been riding for 22 years, and I've been… Read Full Review
