African Horse Safaris hits the Tuli Block, Botswana



African Horse Safaris set out for 250 miles of extremely exciting riding through the Limpopo area in Botswana, famous for its elephant populations. The horses were fabulous and we had the most incredible week. This trip is a progressive ride, with accommodation made up of several luxury tented camps. This is true African wilderness at its best and the varied scenery makes excellent going for the horses. I was blown away by the experience. We saw hundreds of elephant, giraffe and zebra from horseback and then lion, cheetah and leopard from the vehicle! Interested in joining a ride?

Jamie and Roses’ first ride

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djSBowqk2LU

Rose is a Quarter Horse mare that is with us for a month's training. Last week Gareth started with a bareback ride on Monday, her first saddled ride was on Tuesday, and Jamie did this ride on Wednesday.
From the first ride we start developing every cue we will need at a walk. Jamie runs through Lateral flexion, Hindquarter disengagement, yielding the forequarters, back up and straight forward. Once these cues are effective at the lightest phase, we introduce the trot/jog and refine the cues. Once this is light we go up to the canter/lope.
