More About The Founder
A life-long horse enthusiast, I set up Cotswold Horse Tours based upon my passion, much travel experience and a keen interest in history, heritage and the British countryside. I take immense pleasure from sharing my country and my love of horses with others. The rest of the team also love the Cotswolds, the charm and diversity of this small part of the world, and, fortunately from my point of view, they enjoy doing the things that I find boring. That is what makes us a team.
Over decades, on five continents, I have been on numerous equestrian vacations, trips and rides. Often these have been in remote locations with excellent out-riding but, even as I enjoyed being on a horse for several days in spectacular scenery, I found I missed the opportunity to also engage with local people, learn a bit of local history, sit in cafes and even go shopping. Also, with the passing of those decades, a bit less time in the saddle is becoming more appealing. Cotswold Horse Tours offers a balance of horse-focused activity and wider contact with the local 'culture' since that is what interests me.
Cirencester, my home town, was recently identified by Horse & Hound, the leading UK equestrian magazine, to be the most horsey town in Britain. So it seemed like a good idea to share it with other horse enthusiasts.
