Italy Holidays Testimonials

Tricia on Endurance Training, Italy

I had always wanted to do some endurance riding and didn't have a clue how to start or what was expected, so I was really excited about doing this holiday. Not only did Paula give me a great insight into the endurance world but also how I could get started with my own horse back
