** NEW RIDE ** COLOMBIA ** NEW RIDE ** Very excited to announce that we've added the Barichara Ride in Colombia to our selection of riding holidays around the world.

The Barichara Ride is an adventurous trail exploring the province of Santander in eastern Colombia.

Setting off from Oiba, ride through small towns and villages, past coffee and sugar cane plantations, waterfalls and canyons. Often you follow the famous cobblestone paths of the ‘Camino Real’ (royal roads), which lead you to the hilltop colonial town of Barichara.

Want to be amongst the first to try out this new trip? The 24 November-3 December date is already confirmed to run. For more details please contact Abbie on +44 1299 272 239 or email

* BOOK NOW ** Explore on horseback the unrivaled open spaces and spectacular landscapes of Namibia. Our trail rides here are true adventures, so expect long days in the saddle and extended spells of fast riding.

Ride, eat, sleep, repeat....camping out each night under a star-filled African sky.

Did you see the recent @telegraphtravel feature on amazing Ants Lodges?

Repost from @tea.cunniffe - Who would have thought that horses would land me the cover of the #DailyTelegraph for @telegraphtravel ! Thank you to @inthesaddle_uk for the referral. Super chuffed with this one featuring the fabulous @annadothart at @antsnest.antshill . A busy day of driving around chasing giraffes and light and bossing a (very patient) Anna around. For those who don't know yet, you'll find my horse safari work at crossthelands

Message from Morocco... "Hi In The Saddle, this is Cheb and he is MAGNIFICENT! 😍 so thrilled 😁" How handsome is Cheb? We're so pleased Karien is having a good time on the Essaouira Coastal Trail. Have fun everyone 🦄⛱️🌊 #morocco #beach #coast #arabian #stunning #inlove #wow

A riding safari is...falling asleep under a blanket of stars.

Here's one for those of you who prefer not to camp... All of the dreamily-luxurious suites at Ol Donyo Lodge in Kenya boast their own 'star bed', as well as en-suite bathroom, outdoor shower, amazing views and a plunge pool of course!

Sleep in the comfort of your beautifully-appointed room, or head up onto your private rooftop terrace and drift off to sleep counting shooting stars - the choice is yours.

Spend your days spotting elephant, lion, zebra and buffalo from horseback amongst the picturesque Chyulu Hills, track game on a guided walk, or traverse the plains on a game drive. No matter which combination of activities you choose, the towering Mount Kilimanjaro will act as your spectacular backdrop.

Had you planned to book our iconic Across the Andes trip, but didn't get the opportunity before the ride stopped running?

Then we have great news for you...we have an epic Across the Andes trip scheduled for 15-24 January 2019.

Cross the vast mountain chain of the Andes from Estancia Huechahue in Argentina, to Puente Barras in Chile.

Along the way you will ford rivers, negotiate steep ridges, gallop across water meadows and wind your way through magnificent rocky gorges. See towering snow-capped peaks, rain forests thick with bamboo and the vast open steppes of Patagonia.

This incredible journey is a once in a lifetime trip. See:

** Did you know? ** In photography, there is such a thing as the 'golden hour'...although there are in fact two golden hours in a day!

The golden hour refers to the period just after sunrise or shortly before sunset, when daylight is redder and softer than when the sun is higher in the sky. On a sunny day, the warm, diffused light at the start and end of the day can really transform your photos.

This image from our Kalahari Safari in Botswana illustrates the sort of beautiful shots you can accomplish during the 'golden hour'. See:
