We had a great time and as a horsey person (Riding for the Disabled Volunteer) we loved staying in the modern holiday cottage in the stable yard. The riding was superb on good horses on some of the best on and off road routes and fields in the south-west. My family from Australia will be joining me in another break later this year, when their children can enjoy the Shetland ponies and the farm animals!
I have been lucky enough to have been on many riding holidays around the world but none quite as memorable as staying with Retzlaff Horse Safaris. I don't often say this as there are so many new places to visit but I will return.

Just returned home from my second trip to Barbate. I've done quite a few different riding holidays and this is the best by far, in every way. The horses are willing, responsive, trustworthy and exciting to ride, while behaving impeccably. They install complete confidence in their riders. There are still places left I want to

You guys were spot on with your advice - we'd heard about nose to tail riding holidays, but none of that here... We felt like Kathy was an old friend within hours and that we were her honoured guests...

We both play polo, though not to a very high standard, and wanted somewhere nice to stay for a week that would serve both as a place to relax and a place to hone our polo skills. Put simply; we loved it so much, we arranged a special trip to return just four months later!
We had an amazing time! Absolutely loved it there! Everyone was brilliant, the food was amazing and there wasn’t one horse we didn't like (and we rode nearly all of them between us). Thanks a million for everything once again! Already thinking of going back there for the ferias next year!
