Welcome to Snaffle Travel

Snaffle Travel is a well established travel company that has been organising escorted equestrian tours since 2015 to some of the top equestrian events around the world.  Our groups have the opportunity to spectate and see some of the best horse and rider combinations.

We have hosted over 18 tours to major equestrian tours including the World Equestrian Games, Badminton Horse Trials, Calgary Stampede, Spain, Royal Windsor Show, CHIO Aachen, Falsterbo and much more.

CHIO Aachen 2017 & 2019

Just got home from an amazing trip that Tania organised. We attended Falsterbo Horse Show and stayed at Malmo Sweden, in the most amazing hotel that dated back to 1307. We then headed to Germany, Aachen to attend the best horse show in the world CHIO Aachen.

Tania was on hand to ensure we all had a great time and everything ran smoothly. 4 countries in 17 days, great sightseeing, wonderful horses, people, food and wine. would highly recommend Snaffle Travel for all your travel needs.

Badminton Tour

I found Tania’s Badminton Tour through an Internet search. She responded promptly to my enquiry, and although bookings had been finalised, kindly altered arrangements to accommodate me. I am very glad that I joined this group. Tania was an excellent leader, and gave us a good mix of free time and organised activities. The group (approximately 20) was an ideal size for us all to get to know one another, and for all to feel included. I would recommend Tania’s equestrian tours without hesitation.

Canada & Calgary tour 2017

Just finished our tour with Tania to Canada featuring the Calgary Stampede and Show jumping at Spruce Meadow as well as a horse riding guest ranch stay. It was a lovely way to travel with like minded people with all the arrangements taken care of by someone else. We met some lovely people and even my non-horsey husband had a great time.

Badminton & Royal Windsor Horse Show 2019

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Tania. I was on this year’s Badminton Trip/Windsor Horse Shows trip and it was just wonderful. We had a great time, well organised with plenty of free time in between. I travelled alone, but with a wonderful group of people on our trip I made some great friends. If Badminton is on your “bucket list”, book in. It really is a trip of a life

Spain & Portugal riding holiday

Snaffle Travel arranged a magical holiday for me, where I spent a week at Epona near Carmona in Spain and another week at Quinta Do Falcoa – a riding farm in Portugal.
I had some other wonderful experiences, such as attending the Spanish Riding School in Jerez and a week sightseeing in Lisbon, as well as visiting Sintra and the Pena Palace.

The horses were amazing, and it was a privilege to ride such beautiful, well-cared-for, and highly trained Andalusian and Lusitano horses.
The hosts at both Equestrian facilities provided wonderful riding experiences and the dressage instruction was excellent on well-schooled and experienced horses.
I cannot wait to travel again on another Snaffle Travel trip!

Badminton & Royal Windsor Horse Show 2019

Recently returned from UK after going to Badminton Horse Trials and Windsor Horse Show with Snaffle Travel. Wow, what a trip. Very well organised tour. Didn’t have to worry about a thing, met some great people and memories that will be with me for a lifetime. Thank you Tania for making our trip special. Highly recommend.

I joined the trip to Spain with Tania and a super group of riders who supported one another riding, exploring, eating and playing. My first trip to Europe could not have been more enjoyable thanks to Tania for organising amazing venues and being the “go to” person at all times.

Thank you so much Tania , what an amazing trip to Spain, so much wonderful riding, brilliant nights of wine and laughter, exploring the incredible little bars and eateries, and thank you so much for rescuing my technologically inept self every time I needed to tap into the real world! To anyone thinking of doing this, just go, it’s everything I imagined, and more, unforgettable memories.

Badminton Horse Trials 2016 & Spain 2017

I loved Badminton & Spain. Tania was very helpful in all aspects of both bookings. The hotel’s were great, very clean and professional. I had dietary requirements which were taken care of. It was lovely to feel safe and looked after. Travelling for me was a scary thing but I am pleased I did this trip in a group and feel the need and the confidence to do more now.

Excellent experienced travel agent who helped us book the trip of a lifetime to Europe. Accommodation was top notch and well researched in excellent locations. Highly recommend Tania and her team.

Thanks Tania – great memories
I had a fabulous trip. Apart from the sheer fabulousness of Badminton itself,  it was an excellent mix of organised and free time, and the ‘day trips’ were fantastic. And much of the fun and friendly spirit of the group was due to the tone you set.
So, congratulations on a job well done, and I will start saving for another trip. Kentucky? Spruce Meadows? WEG? Hmmmmmm
