For a while, I had a dream of going on a riding holiday, and I eventually found my way to Outside the Corral. I was extremely impressed with Laure-Anne's guidance in helping me choose the perfect trip. It was fantastic how quickly I could communicate with her, and she provided me with a wealth of information. In the end, I embarked on an amazing journey to Iceland and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. Laure-Anne had already warned me that once you experience a riding holiday, you become instantly hooked, and she was absolutely right! I'm already eagerly planning my next adventure, and, of course, I'll be using Outside the Corral again.
The destination was perfect for my purpose of recharging, relaxing and improving my riding skills. The horses were just beautiful and easy to ride, the food was delicious and the property was absolutely gorgeous. I also had a good time with the other guests, horse lovers who came from all over the world to this place for the famous Portuguese Lusitano horses. I will definitely return to Monte Velho! Laure-Anne read my needs perfectly and advised me exactly which ride to book. Moreover, she was very flexible when I needed to change my schedule and was available for 24/7 for questions. If you are thinking of a riding holiday, this is the place to book!
From the first conversations, we clearly felt a "click". Laure-Anne understood very clearly what we were looking for and that was for myself an "exciting riding experience" and for my partner a pleasurable wellness. And what we got was an incredibly romantic setting in Ireland with excellent horses and guides (both lessons and trail rides). The whole setting was perfect and, to top it off, we got a gorgeous, sunny summer week in Ireland without a drop of rain. We had no worries, gave everything out of our hands (including the extension of our riding trip with a rental car). Everything was tip-top, like Swiss clockwork!

I recently had the privilege of embarking on an authentic riding holiday in Botswana, organised by the fantastic team at Outside the Corral. I cannot express enough how extraordinary this experience was! I would like to express my sincere thanks to Outside the Corral for putting together such a unique and enriching experience. This trip went beyond a holiday, it was an immersion in the beauty and authenticity of Botswana. If you are looking for adventure, connection and memories that will last a lifetime, look no further. Thank you Laure-Anne for making my riding holiday in Botswana truly incredible!
