Horse riding in Madagascar

Julia Elizabeth, 65 years old - Lakewood

For those riders who eschew high end comforts for the sake of experiencing a country in real terms, this trip to Madagascar was perfect. Iris helped me customise a solo trip, which meant that I had lots of time with the operation's people and horses. Four hours a day (which we scheduled to start early to avoid the heat), good lengthy hearty gallops through forests and on beaches, and for me a spicy tall retired Thoroughbred who gave me an excellent ride. The cook, Cici, fed me like a queen even with limited resources. We slept on beach sand, had endless hours to ourselves, explored the villages, and this trip provided lots of rest after a hard climb up Mt. Kenya. Depending on which part of Mada you choose to ride in you are likely to have a very different experience. I got what I asked for-lots of alone time, quiet time, and plenty of excellent high energy riding in thick forests and on open beach. It IS mighty hot here, however, and you are forewarned to be prepared to sweat heavily, even at night in the tent (in November). If you enjoy going simply, experiencing the local culture, and having endless hours watching turquoise breakers (I most assuredly did) after an exhilarating ride in the local area, l recommend Mada.
