I recently had the most extraordinary riding holiday that surpassed all expectations. The journey from Petra to Wadi Rum offered breathtaking scenery, providing an unparalleled sense of freedom in the expansive desert landscapes. I'm incredibly glad that I came across an article about Outside the Corral in Feeling, followed Laure-Anne's wonderful Instagram page, scheduled a virtual coffee, and eventually booked this ride, which, in my opinion, ranks among the best in the world! Laure-Anne added a special touch to the experience; she was incredibly responsive, enthusiastically helped me with all my questions, and even provided several locations where I could get fit for the ride. Her guidance truly made the entire experience even more magical. Now, I'm left wondering whether to book one or two riding vacations with her next time!

What an amazing service, and most importantly, an incredibly cool trip! We intentionally chose to book through OTC for that extra sense of security. Going away for the first time is always a bit thrilling, but OTC provided us with great peace of mind through their excellent guidance and abundant information. We had several questions beforehand, and Laure-Anne promptly, thoroughly, and kindly answered them all. Even when there were some uncertainties upon arrival, she handled it well, and everything was resolved smoothly. Additionally, the location in Poland (Warmia-Mazuria) was truly stunning—a beautiful estate, friendly people, well-cared-for horses, and exciting rides (especially the cross, which is a must-try!). I would wholeheartedly recommend both this place and OTC itself. It was top-notch!!! Thanks so much!
We had a wonderful riding holiday in Portugal with Outside the Corral. The location of Monte Velho Equo Resort is indescribably beautiful. The terrace has an incredible a view where you can see the horses galloping from the terrace. Also, I have never had a more beautiful view while sitting in the sauna. I can definitely recommend the trail rides. The trail horses are top notch and this way you get to know the surrounding area. Our guide always took us to the most beautiful spots. My biggest fear was that the horses would not be treated well, but nothing could be further from the truth. The horses are very well looked after. Lastly, Laure-Anne guided us very well. Even though it was our first riding holiday, we knew exactly what to expect. Definitely highly recommended!
From our very first meeting with Outside the Corral, we felt confident with Laure-Anne. She enthusiastically shared details about the various rides, assessed our expectations and skill level. Shortly after, we received a well-thought-out proposal with several appealing destinations. Choosing proved challenging for us, as all options looked fantastic—sorry for the delay, Laure-Anne :-). Ultimately, we settled on the "Castles of the Gredos" ride in Spain—a tranquil and beautiful journey on delightful horses. Despite some days with long hours in the saddle, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's a form of slow travel, allowing us to set aside the "must-do" list for a week and savor moments on horseback in the stunning natural surroundings. Leading up to the departure, Laure-Anne remained highly engaged, and we truly felt well-informed—perhaps the most informed among our travel group. Thank you, Laure-Anne!
