The Horse Riding Tourist – Near and Far

by Rachel Lofthouse

A travelogue of horse-riding adventures.

The Horse Riding Tourist – Near and Far is the first book in a planned series of books where the reader accompanies the author as she discovers the amazing world of horse riding holidays.

Destinations

In this book, you will visit breath-taking Iceland to meet the Icelandic Horse and experience its unique silky-smooth gait: tolt. In this land of glaciers and volcanoes, you will gaze at geysers and wonder at the Northern Lights. Onwards from Iceland, you will head south and east to Egypt and delve into this country’s rich and fascinating past of Pharaohs and Pyramids. Out In the pyramid fields, you will gallop trailing the tails of Egyptian Arab horses and watch the sunset in the Sahara. Closer to home, there is a staycation in the magical county of Cornwall. Here, you have a fabulous beach ride across the golden sand and a refreshing swim on your steed. Then, after all the challenge and adventure, it’s time to relax and chill out on the island of Mallorca. On this ultimate Mediterranean retreat, ride along woodland trails and coast paths enjoying many fast canters along the way.

People and Horses

Horse riding holidays are a fantastic way to learn about different places and cultures. What makes this type of holiday special is the people you meet and the horses. These four stories will introduce you to some unique equines and the people, who have the privilege to work with them each day. You will also get to meet other guests who share your passion for horses.

Inspiring You

When Rachel first dreamt about this kind of holiday, she couldn’t find a lot of advice or guidance so had to go for it and learn herself. By recounting her first four experiences it is hoped after reading this book, you will have the confidence and inspiration to go on a riding holiday of your own. Near or far, home or away, once in a lifetime or a frequent visit, there is an incredible mini-adventure out there waiting to be discovered by you.
