Horseback Riding Vacations

You might be tempted to try a riding holiday abroad, combining the pleasure of endless riding time with the thrill of visiting new and exotic places. The options being almost endless, either you can galloping along the beaches of sunny Calfornia with a spot of window shopping in LA, or you can throw yourself into the life on a ranch where you get to be a cattle chasing cowboy. If you'd like to get up close and personal with zebras and elephants, you can take into consideration an African safari. But the feeling of a real tourist comes only when you're traveling with a group of sun burnt Europeans in places where tourists are a curiosity. This way, you can end sipping tea with the head man of a remote village in Rajasthan or drink ouzo with a Greek fisherman in an isolated Aegean village.

A riding vacation is a great idea for anyone who likes nothing better then getting away from it all. It's the ultimate de-stressor, spending days doing what you love best, with no other pressures or demands on your time. You'll be amazed at what's out there; a search through the adverts online will open up endless possibilities, from lessons at a dressage clinic to a breathtaking wilderness safari in Africa. There's pretty much no limit depending on your riding ability and of course, your bank balance. To start with, you'll need to think carefully about your fitness, how good a rider you are and how much you want to pay. Like anybody planning a holiday, you'll also want to make the most of your precious free time to do what you want, whether it's a stress free escape with a few friends or a family holiday. If you can take the time to plan carefully and do a lot of research into what's out there, the chances are you'll come up with something that suits best. Start by asking yourself what you'd really like to do, but don't be afraid to try new things, of course staying within your own limits.
