Combing a holiday with horses doesn’t have to mean sacrificing luxury, as our MD & Life long horse lover, Ashley Rossiter found out recently when she took a closer peak at what luxury equestrian holidays have to offer horse lovers…
Looking through the numerous getaways that are available, it seems that you can experience everything; from ranch life with real-life cowboys to riding out on safari with lions, or even falling in love in Greece on beautiful beach rides. However, for those of you looking for supreme luxury with horses, how about this for a break that has it all (including the horses): http://rancholascascadas.com
To me, this looks like the ultimate in equestrian holidays! After exploring the Mexican countryside in the saddle (which will never get boring, thanks to different trails on offer throughout your stay), you can cool off with a dip in their solar-heated infinity pool and relive any aches or pains in the Jacuzzi and hot tub. Plus, for those weekend riders for whom 3 solid days in the saddles might necessitate a bit more TLC, they also offer a rejuvenating massage at their very own spa.
And when it comes to food, you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the veranda overlooking the pool and picturesque valley before riding. You can then eat lunch al fresco on their patio and dine in the rustic-styled dining room every evening.
For me, equestrian holidays like this have everything: sun, spa, great cuisine, cocktails and horses… really, what more could a girl want?! Maybe Zac Efron? 😉
