Quick Getaways

We know how ever more demanding business pressures can squeeze your vacation time and threaten your quality of life. Most of our rides last a week, but some can be arranged for three or four days only like our Wyoming ranch and the dressage programs in Massachusetts and Florida. Short rides are also possible if you happen to be passing through Jo’burg, Nairobi or Auckland. If you are in London, Castle Leslie, which has some of the world’s best jumping opportunities, is only a short hop away. Take a look at some of the quick horse riding getaways we offer.
