Trail Ride Holidays


Trail or point to point rides are horseback expeditions where you stay at a different locations throughout the trip. Some trail riding holidays are real adventures where you go back to basics with no frills, such as camping out under the stars with your horse at your side, whilst others take you between a variety of welcoming accommodation. Trail rides are a wonderful way to explore further afield in your country of choice, visiting South American estancias, Croatian farmhouses or perhaps luxurious African camps. They are also a great opportunity to enjoy the nature and wilderness of your surroundings as you can travel longer distances into untouched lands.

Trail rides are often seen as a way to get a feel for the country you are visiting. Riding to more remote areas brings encounters with locals, tucked away in their traditional homesteads, and travelling by horse sometimes means you can reach areas where vehicles cannot pass. The longer riding hours allow more time for your riding confidence and technique to improve and for you to bond with your assigned horse, a truly special experience.

There is a huge choice of trail rides to suit different riding abilities and budgets, though most involve long hours in the saddle and therefore are only suitable for those with some riding experience. If you are a beginner or novice, then take a look at our beginner rides to see what your options are. For the adventurous rider you can choose a fast ride, a desert exploration or even a once in a lifetime experience such as crossing the Andes mountain range on a fabulous Criollo horse.

Montenegro is stunningly beautiful and remarkably diverse. The frenzy of the beach culture on the coastline abruptly gives way to an untamed interior where wolves and bears still roam the dark mountain forests which gave Montenegro its name. Our rides in Montenegro explore both the north and south mountains. Until the 1960's many villages were only reachable by horse or on foot and even today horses still play an important role.
