"Did not have enough staff for a beginner."
Elena, guide, was very professional and helpful.

Cally, the Highland French Trotter Cross and the food. Cally is a delightful mare. She’s just beautiful. She has a good little clip to her too. My favorite rides were cantering through the woods with the curves and small hills, cantering the soft paths leaving little villages, and the afternoon at the cross country and obstacle courses. The later I could have done every day. The accommodation is as pictured, the food is great, and proprietors, Amanda and Derek, are attentive and really fun. I would highly recommend this vacation and would certainly go back. This is also a terrific vacation for solo travelers.

"Week of Joy !"
Both Derek & Amanda were so welcoming & personable. Nothing is too much trouble.
The horses are fantastic & Derek is hugely knowledgable.
The rides were different every day with lots of canters & gallops. The grooms were very experienced & catered for all abilities.
Amazing scenery.Special treat was the Trek & XC afternoon.
Amanda is a superb chef, every meal simply gorgeous with the wine & beer flowing.
Whole experience was really terrific.

"Laurel from Canada"
The entire experience for my week at French Riding Holidays was fantastic. From the moment that Amanda picked me up in Toulouse I knew I was going to like her and it just got better. The accommodations are charming and comfortable, everyone has their space and the showers are long and hot, just what you need after a long ride. The food is terrific, homemade and every bite was delicious. The riding is out of this world and having Derek take you on the trails is like attending a Master Class on horsemanship (it was for me in any case). Their helper, Katie was a pleasure to meet and she provided a lot of insight and stability as I rode like I have never before as my experience has just been in lessons in a riding ring. The confidence I gained from trusting their direction, trusting the fabulous horses and finally myself has been a fantastic conclusion to a wonderful trip. I can't wait to go back again.

"Great relaxing holiday"

The horses were great - lovely soft mouths; every ride was different and Kylee was great too (apologies if I got the name wrong). She deserves to see Hobbitville in NZ; great food and lodgings - overall a great place to meet people, ride fabulous horses and get to see part of France from a different perspective. Thanks Amanda for your perseverance cause at one stage I was having second thoughts about going through with my booking cause it sounded too difficult to get to!

"We’ll be back"
Everything. The horses, the people, the attitude, the countryside and of course the cooking.
