“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

“A truly fantastic experience with top class service!”

Written on: 27/10/2013 by ShonaRatcliffe (1 review written)

I cannot complement far and ride enough for there service they were absolutely brilliant! I contacted them with a last minute request for a holiday departing within 2/3 weeks, having never been on a horse riding holiday before I didn’t know what I wanted and relied very much on their opinions and recommendations and I was absolutely thrilled with my week at El Bronco Ranch in Hungary. They made sure the holiday suited my riding ability and I really did feel like I had a personal service the… Read Full Review

“Mountains to Sea trail, Country and Beach Getaway,...”

Written on: 07/10/2013 by Emmalw2804 (1 review written)

I cant tell you what an amazing time I had! I cant believe I have only been away for a week I feel that relaxed and chilled out it is like I have been away for months! The horse I rode for the trail was a very strong little mare with a bucket full of character, I wish I could have brought her home! I really don't know how she carried me up the mountain but she worked very hard for me every day and I was very grateful. The highlight of the trail for me was the decent from the mountains towards… Read Full Review

Have been on 2 riding holidays organised by Far and Ride and wish I had found them years ago. Their website is an excellent starting point filled with lots of useful information but it's their personal approach that makes them so good. Emails are replied to very quickly and nothing seems to be too much trouble. I will definately be using them again… Read Full Review

“Excellent service, great holiday”

Written on: 10/06/2013 by Timatlowlands (1 review written)

The service from Far and Ride was excellent, the advisor was very helpful and gave good advice given that I had never been on a riding holiday before and had only been riding for 4 months. It was obvious while we were there that the communication between Far and Ride and the hotel was comprehensive. The information pack sent to us was also very comprehensive. Our holiday was at Mandra Edera in Sardinia, and I thought it was quite magical! The hotel itself is delightful, all the staff including… Read Full Review
