Snaffle Travel has been operating small-group, bespoke tours to major equestrian events around the world since 2015.  We have hosted over 20 tours to date.

We create affordable tours to suit the equestrian enthusiast who wants to travel with like-minded people in comfort and have everything planned and arranged.

Our tours are fully hosted and include transport, accommodation, daily breakfast, some meals, event tickets, and other sightseeing arrangements.  Some of our itineraries include group flights and we can arrange independent flights as well as travel insurance.

All you have to think about is turning up each morning.

There’s something to be said for having an experienced host with the knowledge on hand to show you the ropes, offer some timely advice and insights, and lead the way into never-before ventured terrain. That’s why our tours have become so popular.

We welcome solo travellers and first-time travellers on all our tours.  If you are travelling solo we offer a match-up service if preferred to avoid the single supplement.

Our hotels are centrally located and are normally 4-star, including breakfast daily and we use local coach companies that are familiar with the local area.  We include some hotel dinners either at the hotel or a local restaurant.  You also have the flexibility on other nights to choose to discover some of the wonderful restaurants in the local area too.

Sometimes we can arrange yard visits, cross-country course walks, and rider meet and greets but this is subject to rider availability and something we cannot guarantee.  At some events it is not possible to offer this.

Many events we have attended for many years and where we can, we choose tickets in a good viewing area and generally undercover.  We can offer optional VIP and member tickets to some events if this is available.

If you want a day off or want to do your own thing we try and offer flexibility on all our tours where the tour schedule can allow.

We are a fully accredited travel company and a member of CATO (Council of Australian Tour Operators), ATIA (Australian Travel Industry Association), and ATAS.  Our travel company has tour operators’ insurance, and our tour hosts have an up-to-date first-aid certificate
