Responsible Sustainable Tourism
As environmental issues are brought to the fore, the impact we have on our surroundings is central to the types of holidays we provide at Redlands Equestrian. Responsible travel is about respecting the environment, people, wildlife, and the landscape - wherever you travel.
Responsible travel brings you closer to local cultures and environments by involving local people in tourism. Redlands Equestrian ensures you have an opportunity to meet local people, wherever possible, and achieve more authentic travel experiences.
In our experience, responsible travel is about rediscovering how to be at one with nature. We aim to understand local people’s relationship with their environment and that income from tourism can be a powerful incentive for conservation.
Air travel, is a relatively small contributor to global warming (less than 5%), but is the fastest growing source of CO2 emissions. So, when we fly on holiday, it’s important our holiday is a responsible one.
Worldwide, the most natural way to enjoy any country is on horseback. Certainly, it is how many of our ancestors, novelists and poets came to experience the diversity of landscapes, cultures and heritage. It enables you to discover the world in one of the most natural ways. Explore our worldwide destinations and talk to the Redlands team about responsible tourism.
Taking your holiday in England with your own horse and avoiding air travel enables you to reduce your impact on the environment. When you visit a local English community, you contribute to sustainable tourism. Just by visiting, you help to support the UK countryside economy. The result is a more meaningful, authentic and individual experience. Tourism depends upon the environment and local communities for its long term survival.
Environmentally responsible travel is growing in importance and popularity. We have the largest UK riding holiday route network and are determined to support UK tourism.
