Always had good time on Unicorn holidays.
PJ of West Yorkshire

Friendly staff right from the beginning, helped me with all my enquiries, honest information given about each holiday. Good beginner rides.

I have and would recommend Unicorn Trails. You basically "know your stuff", are efficient and very user friendly. You have a very broad range of holidays for all abilities and price brackets.

I couldn't have wished for better service from Unicorn!

The staff at Unicorn trails were friendly, knowledgeable and professional and it was nice that they even sent an email a few days prior to the holiday to check if I had any questions.

Any queries were dealt with punctually and efficiently. No problems at all.

I've now done 3 rides with Unicorn and I'm impressed at the very high standards that you consistently maintain. I now trust that the horses will be of excellent quality and everything will be well-organised.

On the whole the holiday delivered what it said on the can!

Unicorn holidays are what keep me sane! I ride the most brilliant horses in the most exotic locations and make great friends around the world.
CW of London

I had a fabulous time and would recommend anyone looking for adventure to try it.
EP of Andover

Would definitely recommend Unicorn Trails to anyone. Their staff are fantastic to deal with and truly care about the riders themselves. I dealt with a lady called Leah Collingwood who was brilliant, she was really concerned about me due to the Icelandic volcano.
SL of Worcester

The quality of the service, horses and overall riding experience was a lot better than some other rides I have been on, particularly one in France with Far and Ride.

A friend had been on your ride in Tuscany last year and hasn't stopped talking about it.  Suggested I take a look at your site.  My own experience has been fantastic and I've already recommended to friends and passed on your site details.
JE of Pewsey

Felt we could trust you to organise and sort everything out, which you did, and had the confidence of a company behind us, if anything went wrong, - had your phone number on us, to use if needed, so never felt "alone".
BB of Ross-shire

Very good personal service & advice throughout.
AV of Harpenden
Individual approach to clients and professional knowledge.

It was fantastic

Very helpful staff, easy and stress free booking.
LW of Salisbury

Very well organised trips. This is my third trip and they just get better!
SV of Shadwell

It was a fantastic holiday that exceeded all my expectations both in service and the ride itself.
JC of Leeds

You can guarantee that what is explained in the write up-that is what you get. The service we receive from the staff is great-any questions they are happy to help.
TH of Bryncoch

We wanted relaxed riding on nice amenable horses through lovely countryside staying in comfortable surroundings and with lovely food, - which is exactly what we got.
JI of Claxton

It was just as described....lots of opportunities for trot and canter and some rough ground but the horses were incredibly responsive and well behaved and anyone comfortable at the three paces would be fine on this ride.
EB of Poland

I'm a fairly novice rider and at no point did I feel scared of the pace or terrain. The climbs although steep were not unmanageable and I always felt like the horses were capable which filled me with confidence. The pace was good with many canters.
FS of Milton Keynes

I was worried about the ride being too advanced for me, but actually it was pitched just right, with as many canters and gallops as the terrain allowed, but no out-of-control racing, as has happened on other rides. I never felt that any ride was too long.
AM of London

It was challenging enough so the longer mornings did not become boring but not challenging enough to be stressful.
LM of Edinburgh

Lots of fast riding, but ample time to relax on horseback and take in the surroundings.
N H-W of Liverpool

The horses were very well trained and the staff concerned to make everything as safe as possible.  A lot of walking and thrilling canters/gallops on the beaches.
JD of Kent

It was not difficult riding, lots of trotting, cantering and a few gallops, but nothing exceptionally demanding. All in all pretty near perfect!
MH of Bury St Edmunds

You covered a lot of different terrain which was lovely as we got to see farmland, woodland and the beach. There were some hills both up and down, and some rocky paths, so you needed to be careful, plus when it was wet some paths were slippery.
FG of Brentford

Unicorn Trails is a well-managed equine travel organisation that prioritises horse welfare and offers a diverse range of riding holiday experiences around the world. The staff members are always friendly and professional to deal with and respond to queries promptly and thoroughly. TH of NSW

Unicorn Trails were reputable, great to deal with, and the ride reviews were particularly invaluable.


Good recommendations and detailed advice on several rides we considered
PM of London  

Words can't describe how amazing I thought our holiday was.  The riding was out of this world - every day was different, the pace suited how we felt, the scenery was probably the most beautiful in the whole of the world. We rode to lots of different place
SG of London

The staff and their care and concern for the horses could not be faulted.
JH of Woodbridge

Horses were very well matched to rider ability, healthy and willing to work.
RJ of Belbroughton

Had enormous fun on a superb little bundle of bounce but everyone was well matched so those who wanted something calmer got it.  All horses were super fit and clearly loved their job.
AB of  Brussels

This was an awesome trip. Unicorn always come up with outstanding adventure trips right off the beaten track. I had no idea this would be so good. If you are going to go to Ethiopia I totally recommend the extension.
DC of New Jersey

The horses were the most well-mannered and likable bunch I've come across in a long time. There was no biting or kicking between themselves even though we rode closely together in a group of 9.
LT of Langford

Horses were, without exception, fantastic. My horse was one of the best I have ever ridden!
DW of London

It was a superb holiday that can be recommended to novices and the experienced rider.
MK of Peterborough

Was really valuable talking to someone who had actually been there.
AB of Brussels

Everything was exactly as described and as shown in the pictures if not better!
EF of Uckfield

I was very pleased with the flexible approach, structured enough to make a schedule and varied enough to cater for both myself and my friend, of very mixed abilities. They were very patient with me as the least capable one of the party…..
SR of Co. Wexford

I honestly couldn't fault it if I tried! 
SS of Lewes

The organisation of the holiday from my initial enquiry, the helpfulness of Unicorn Trails staff throughout, and the holiday venue were all excellent.   The horses were lovely - even better than we had expected!
ET of Alloa

Have used Unicorn before, and would recommend to others.  The staff's knowledge of the rides has been very useful in helping us pick where to go.
PM of London

I'm always telling anyone who listens to go to your web pages
JJ of Kelsall

DN of Oxford

It was really well organised and there are such a varied range of rides there's something for everyone!

I always find your staff very helpful and knowledgeable.  When I've rung and asked for a type of holiday, they respond very quickly with a range of options that suit my needs.

The holiday was hassle free, both when booking it & also as far as transfers/sightseeing went as it was all pre-arranged for us, which made everything stress free.

It was the best holiday I've ever had - really professionally run so I wasn't worried about travelling on my own. Everything was made so easy before hand, and everything during the holiday was as it was described to me or better.

CW of North Kilworth

We are confident that what we get is what was described in the brochure. …… descriptions are based on first-hand experience.

I have been fortunate enough to do several riding trips and nowhere else have the horses been so well cared for or the quality of tack so good.
