Welcome Equestrian Travelers!
Welcome equestrian travelers! You can read about my horseback riding adventures, whether domestic or international.
First of all, I decided to build a website and write about my travel adventures. I built this website here. You will find a wonderful online community where you can learn about building a website and how to gain traffic. In addition, this site is a good place to learn affiliate marketing. I never learned affiliate marketing before, however, I like learn new things.
My goal is to become an expert travel blogger. While working towards this goal, I hope to travel more and continue to publish horseback riding adventures. In addition, I encourage those who have been on horseback riding vacations to share their stories.
To give a brief introduction of my horseback riding adventures, which started in 2014, was my first overseas trip since my husband, William, passed away. He and I always traveled together. After his death, I carried on our travel tradition.
My wish of horseback riding overseas came true when I booked a cruise on Fred Olsen Cruise Lines in August 2014. The cruise was a trip around the Scottish Highlands.
Before the trip, I searched for public horseback riding stables in Great Britain. I found two; there was one in the Orkney Islands and the other in the Isle of Mann. I contacted the managers and reserved my spot. I thought about visiting the Scottish Highlands including the Orkney and Shetland Islands, and a cruise was the best way to do it since I could avoid pulling my luggage from city to city. A cruise was a good way to travel while enjoying the view of the ocean.
When our ship stopped in the Orkney Islands, I went for a trail ride at the local equestrian center.
The trail ride in the Orkney Islands was wonderful! I was happy I went horseback riding overseas; due to that is something I dreamed about for a long time.
I rode a small white horse named Harmony. Because of their shorter legs, these small horses can handle the hilly terrain better than larger horses. The horses may not be that large, however, they sure are strong!
I enjoyed my trail ride in the Orkney Islands, and I will never forget it.
At the midpoint of the cruise, my next trail ride was to be in the Isle of Man. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the ship had to bypass this spot and continue onto the next destination. That was disappointing!
All was not lost. After the cruise ended, I still had some vacation time left. My next destination was Newcastle, in northeastern England. I went on my next trail ride there.
Two trail rides on my first overseas trip alone was not bad for a start! I was happy to finally have a chance to ride overseas. When I planned future trips to other countries in Europe, I knew it would be difficult to find a public riding stable. So I continued to search the internet and found equestrian vacations.
With equestrian vacations, the package deal includes horseback riding, meals, and accommodations. Therefore, that was the perfect to go horseback riding while traveling.
So after deciding equestrian vacations is the way to go, I booked my two recent equestrian vacations through Hidden Trails. This company is based in Canada and they specialize in equestrian vacations in almost every country. In addition, you can choose from a variety of different types of vacations, from beginner to advanced.
