Founder Elizabeth Broomhall, is a qualified yoga teacher who has worked at riding outfits in Argentina, Mozambique, the USA, Italy, Spain and Egypt. Her aim is to empower equestrian travellers to get them feeling fit, healthy and energetic before their holidays. “I want riders to feel confident in mind and body before they jet off on a trip that they’ve probably been planning for some time, and that they’re naturally very excited about,” she says.
