- Irish Castle Experience-

Enjoy an equestrian’s dream cross country course, sleep where royalty have dreamt and take in a tapestry of romantic, rich interiors at Castle Leslie, where Andrew Bradley, the Executive Chef, cooks up centuries old Leslie family recipes and new cuisine based on his Michelin experience in Castle Leslie’s candlelit dining room.

- Spain Inn to Inn Ride-

Arrive to a different charming area on horseback, perhaps right to the entrance of your hotel each evening. Spend days riding to medieval villages, feasting on Spanish tapas and wine during picnic lunches and enjoying apertif stops on the trail in Spain's Sierra de Gredos.
