Browsing Quick Getaway

We know how ever more demanding business pressures can squeeze your vacation time and threaten your quality of life.

Escape on a riding vacation, even if you have limited time available. Most of our rides last about a week, but some programs are shorter, so that you can fit in some riding along with other demands on your time. There are several options here in the states for shorter stays, like our Wyoming ranch and the dressage programs in Massachusetts and Florida. If you are already planning a trip abroad, you may be able to add a few days at one our European locations. If you are in London, Castle Leslie, which has some of the world’s best jumping opportunities, is only a short hop away. In France, travel to the Chateau en Auvergne for a classic country riding experience. In Africa, an extension to ride near Victoria Falls should not missed. You could also spend a few days at Horizon Ranch if you’ll be near Johannesburg, or at Sosian if you’re passing through Kenya. We’ll be glad to help you plan a trip even if you have time constraints! Take a look at some of the quick horse riding getaways we offer.
