The host  really made us feel special by introducing us to many well known equestrian stars. As it was just the two of us he really went out of his way to take us on special trips which really made our holiday for us. We were made to feel like one of the family'  I Henry, October 2011

Beach & Forest Riding, Spain: 'It is still a mystery to me how/why the Redlands Brochure was sent to me, but I am so glad that it was. Penny and Gordon were perfect hosts and made the stay even more enjoyable with the interesting local history, lively conversation and (I think mostly Gordon's) lovely meals, all very enjoyable indeed. The rooms were wonderful too - just the right amount of privacy for me, but in amongst everything  I enjoyed the riding immensely because the horses all seemed to enjoy the outtings too. They were lively but very well behaved and are very well cared for. It was important to me to go to a place where small groups are catered for, as we discussed. I did not know what to expect regarding the scenery but they ae very lucky to have such a picturesque forrest to ride in. Thank you for your team's help before I went...That was much appreciated' T Claydon, October 2011

Montana Ranch Holiday, USA: 'I would recommend the Ranch for provding an overall experience. The riding was wonderful and exceeded expectations. The horses were very well cared for and Ranch staff were very flexible in meeting our every need. The food was excellent. The area was interesting with wonderful scenery. we enjoyed ourselves so much at the ranch that we booked additional riding rather than touring as we had originally planned on our 'non riding days. I did experience altitude sickness and this should be made clear to clients as a possiblity. (we have made this clearer on the site) the personal service on telephone and email throughout the booking was very helpful from the Redlands team' A Jones, October 2011

French Chateau Holiday: 'The accomodation and food were fantastic; the horses are well schooled and a pleasure to ride. We chose to travel by train, which was organised brilliantly by the Redlands team; this did mean however that we didn't have a car and as the location is very remote and difficult to get taxis we did feel that on another visit we might fly and hire a car. We really enjoyed the riding which is mainly on tracks - some of these are stony - this means that you can't always go fast. I think at times we would have preferred some faster paces. All in all a great holiday and we would consider going bac' G Hammond, October 2011

Montana Ranch Holiday, USA: 'We had a fantastic holiday, couldn't fault anything - we've booked again for next year' L & P Dove, September 2011.

Horse of the Year Show Competition: 'Thank you for my birthday card and the HOYS tickets, I am happy to report that my friend and I had a great day out! We spent a very happy 9 hours at HOYS! We watched the show jumping classes, the showing final classes, the pony club games and scurry driving. The highlight for me was the household cavalry's musical ride, exhilarating. Thank you so much for the prize tickets....a great birthday present, a great day, lots of fun and laughs' C Richardson, October 2011

Gois, Portugal: 'You were very helpful and informative, the booking procedures and transfer arrangements were excellent. The horses were lovely and the scenery beautiful. I would definitely travel with Redlands again' K Bone, September 2011 

Beach Riding, Western Cumbria: 'Thank you for organising our holiday. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the riding and the accommodation' S Duffus, September 2011

French Chateau Riding Holiday: 'The Chateau accommodation is wonderful we had 2 bedrooms at the side, which were spacious, quiet and very comfortable. Out hosts Linda and Chris were extremely hospitable and Linda is a divine cook. The meals were gourmet standard and so well presented in a lovely old style dining room. There were always drinks and nibbles pre dining so we could chat about the day and other things too...The stable block was just as you would wish for - clean, airy and pleasant for the horses with a correct out fitted tack room. My horse was just gorgeous - the type of horse I would like to own - Ayva, a French war horse. Tanya, the riding instructor, was extremely professional whilst being approachable and good fun. I felt very comfortable in her care and she was also willing to give instruction by appointment.  I was disappointed when it was time to come home as I had enjoyed myself immensely' J Astley  September 2011

Take Your Horse on Holiday, Bedford: 'I found the Redlands booking procedure and service very efficient and helpful. The accommodation for us, the horses and the route guides and maps were excellent. We would definitely travel with Redlands again'  K Granger, August 2011

Trail Riding in Ribatejo: 'Just a brief email on behalf of Penny and myself to thank you all for a very special holiday. I’m back at work today, unfortunately, and it already feels a very long way away from the lush fields, vines and the wide river of the Ribatejo.  We had a fantastic time and that’s due in no small part to the pre-holiday booking and administration, as well as the passion, enthusiasm and great humour of all the team in Portugal. Thanks once again for all your kindness and good advice.  We’re already looking forward to the next trip!' R Pope, May 2011

UK Luxury Hotel Break: 'Fabulous horses, a beautiful setting and very friendly and helpful staff. The opportunities are endless for beginners and advanced riders alike. Hacking, lessons, jumping and cross country are all on offer. It was wonderful to be back in the saddle again with expert yet relaxed guidance on hand - we didn't want to leave!' L Jackson, February 2011

Uruguay: 'Thank you so much for your expertise in arranging this trip. The travelling went like clockwork and the holiday was excellent - although we had a few surprises! The horses are wonderful and well looked after. I am a bit of a wimp with new horses and unfamiliar surroundings, plus of course a whole new riding technique. That was difficult to get to grips with but after a few days we were coping OK. My horse was very good and I enjoyed her, and Jill had a partnership going too. The tour guide is excellent; professional, caring, with a sense of humour, and I would recommend her without hesitation. The second horse I had there was a gem; I could bring him home any time. The beach rides were as described; the best ever. The accommodation was mixed between excellent hotels, basic fishing village accommodation and estancias. I would not in all honesty go back as it was a culture shock but we are very glad we went. I have looked at your brochure again and picked out my next one! Thank you so much and I will be back with you again' J Astley, December 2010/January 2011

Spain: 'We can’t wait to come back; great beach riding and lovely horses in a perfect location' Alice, Evette, Jill, Ali, Alice, September 2010

Italy: 'We had a fantastic holiday, even better than we thought it would be! The accommodation was absolutely excellent. The facilities were excellent too, great pool, football pitch, tennis court, ping pong, mountain bikes available. Couldn't fault a single thing. The riding was also fantastic. Really good horses, not 'over-trekked into boredom'. All responsive and a pleasure to ride. All the rides were as said, different each day and, for us, always a canter and plenty of trots along the way. Fantastic area to ride in, beautiful views, very varied terrain, well led. Can't fault a single thing about the whole weekend and would definitely do it again! So thanks very much!' Jayne Hollinson, August 2010

Italy: 'We had a good time, horses were in good condition and well looked after...Staff pleasant & helpful'  L Brooks, August 2011

Botswana: 'The booking process was brilliant we had lots of queries and uncertainties about the bike/ride safari. Every question was checked and clarified; so the holiday was beautifully matched to what we wanted. Overall we loved every minute. I was the worst/least confident rider but still managed the gallops and the jumping. The whole ride was superbly organised and being able to take a riding holiday with my hubby who cannot ride and prefers mountain bikes was fantastic. We shared similar experiences but had time to do our own thing. We wouldn't have missed it for the world!' L Rodgers, September 2010
