Globetrotting Horse Adventures With Kate Pilcher
We could all use a little vacation. Wouldn’t a horseback adventure be great? Sometimes it seems the civilized world has taken a temporary leave of common sense. But over the last 18 months, if you have a horse, you know there is one sure place to escape, the saddle. Kate Pilcher found her happy place when she escaped to Kenya. It was such a life-changing experience; she wanted to share it with others. Then she found a great adventure ride in South America, another one in France, and Ireland. People were having horseback adventures around the globe. Kate put all these trips and more together and started a business called Globetrotting. She puts people and horseback adventures together.
Kate tests every ride she offers on her website. Each posted adventure has most of the details you need to know to prepare for the trip. In the rides I looked at, I could see the breed of horse they trip used, the type of tack, the time in the saddle. Also, what riding ability, the accommodations, time in the saddle helps you choose the best ride for you. One feature I particularly liked was inclusions and exclusions for each trip. For example, one trip in France excluded alcoholic drinks, except for wine at lunch. It’s this attention to details that makes Globetrotting stand out in preparing for your horse adventure. There are always going to be surprises on any trip you take. It’s a part of travel. Globetrotting takes a lot of the guesswork out of planning a trip.
As an armchair traveller, I really enjoy talking to people about world travel experiences with horses.
