Chris Day’s trip to Tsylos

British Columbia offers a magical retreat from the normality of everyday life. In our latest blog Chris Day recounts her recent trip to the wonderful destination of Tsylos in British Columbia…

Tsylos is less than a one hour flight from Vancouver and is situated at the north end of the Chilko Lake in British Columbia. I had an amazing flight! We had clear skies and fabulous views. The flight (on about a twelve-seater plane) was about 45 minutes. Our driver for the journey from the airport to the Lodge was Pat, one of the fishing guides. He was knowledgeable about the area and kept us amused on the journey.

We arrived at Tsylos at about 12:30, waited for everyone else to arrive and then sat down to a welcome lunch of macaroni cheese. We then had a general briefing before sitting with Theresa, our guide, who asked us about our riding experience and the type of horse we preferred. After an hour to ourselves, settling into our rooms, we met at the barn for our introductory ride. Theresa gave us a full briefing and demo on catching your horse, putting on the halter, tying up to the hitching rail, brushing off, tacking up, mounting and dismounting. Then we went to the corral and caught our horses. I was assigned ‘Joe’, a good looking bay gelding.

We rode out for about 1 ½ hours, with Theresa leading and Dave as back-up. We were mainly walking but we had a short canter too. Back at the barn we washed down the horses and were back in our rooms by 17:00. Time to freshen up before heading to the lodge at 18:00, where pre-dinner nibbles are left on the bar for guests. It was a splendid first dinner of wild sea trout, salad, potatoes and asparagus, all washed down with nice Canadian wines.

It was cold this morning. I slept quite well then headed down to the lodge where coffee was ready and everyone was gathering for breakfast. Breakfast was homestyle hash browns and a scrambled egg medley (ie with bacon, cheese, tomatoes etc), fruit, cereal, yoghurt and bread.

Quickly over, we collected our sandwiches and made our way up to the barn for 09:30. We caught our horses, groomed and tacked up, and were away by 10:00. We went a different route today, following the road for a while, past Chilko campsite (closed to camping due to bear activity!!!) and then on to Green Lake. After lunch we followed the same route back for the majority of the way, but diverted to have a short canter on an undulating track. We were back at the barn by 14:00 which gave people the chance to have a beer on the deck or head for the hot tub!

What a lovely morning! I was ready for the splendid breakfast of French toast and bacon. Today we headed out on the Mountain Ride. This ride is all at a walk due to the terrain. We left the barn at about 10:00 and started to climb immediately. There were some very scenic bits as we left the treeline and it got very steep in places. We stopped to rest the horses several times and reached the top of the mountain at about 13:00.

What a view! We sat and ate our lunch looking over the spectacular Chilko Lake. It was magnificent! We lead the horses off the top, which was shingle and steep. It took about 2 ½ hours to get back to the barn and we lead the horses several times. We got back to the lodge for a well deserved drink by 16:30!

Wednesday 24th September 2014
It was a cold, bleak and drizzly morning, but breakfast (bacon, egg, cheese and tomato pie) got me going just fine! The plan today had been to do the boat trip up the lake, but due to the weather it was decided to postpone this and to do a cantering ride instead. I had a change of horse to one of the veterans, a coloured horse called Charlie. I think he’s the boss! Again we set off at about 10:00 and rode along the scenic river. We had about three canters on the way to an abandoned lodge. As we were cantering up a trail towards the lodge, we heard the dogs barking and some strange snorting (not unlike a stallion) and looking back we saw three bears (mother and two cubs) crossing the trail, thankfully after the last horses had passed! We tried to track them, but could not find where they had gone.

We reached the lodge at about 11:45 and stopped here for lunch. This time of year it is the peak of the salmon run, which is great for bringing the bears down to the river, but not so nice for the amount of dead salmon everywhere. We stayed around the lodge for a couple of hours, and went to investigate a beaver lodge. It was amazing to see the trees they had taken down. Incredible!

The meals we had throughout the week were really delicious, and tonight’s rack of lamb was no exception. We had fun after dinner reciting poems and playing a game not dissimilar to charades.

Thursday 25th September 2014
Today is a rest day for the horses and so we all headed out in the boat with Bud to Chilko Lake. It was an amazing day with some incredible views. The mountain scenery is really stunning. After about an hour we stopped and walked to a small lake often frequented by moose. We carried on down an inlet, which was calmer, to an old miner’s cabin. From here it was a further five minutes to our lunch spot on a beach. A fire was lit and hot drinks handed round to warm us up.

Back into the boat after lunch had settled, for another hour continuing up the lake. We reached a spot where we walked to a small lake known as ‘Spectacular Lake’. And it was! On the way back up the lake we passed a structure being built by an old Vietnam draft dodger. Bud had a few stories to tell about him! (Walks about in bare feet apparently!) Then, finally, we saw bears! A mother and cub running along the shore (well, they were eating fish until we came along!) and then a little further along there was a mother and two cubs running up the scree into some trees. Amazing!

We got back to the lodge for about 17:30, and were pleased to get back into the warmth. It had been a fantastic trip, and a wonderful way to see Chilko Lake, but boy it was cold on the back of the boat!

Friday 26th September
Today we had some great cantering rides, through the trees with some great switchbacks – you really had to be in tune with your horse. We rode back to the abandoned lodge where we saw the mother and cubs the other day, as one of the ladies had dropped her sunglasses. When we got to the abandoned lodge there was a group of photographers totally absorbed in photographing the mother bear and her cubs as they sat in the river eating the abundant salmon. We tried to be very quiet and were able to watch the bears for a while, before she spotted one of our dogs, let out a snort and disappeared!

After lunch we had some more canters and opened up on the old airfield and also a nice paddock, which gave for some nice photo opportunities. Back at the lodge there was a mother bear and two cubs just down by the jetty. We dashed down and spent a long time watching them from just 50yds away. Amazing.

Saturday 27th September
A repeat today of the upper and lower ‘roller coaster’ rides, lovely winding canters through the trees and then out onto the ridge; “don’t look down!” We crossed the river via the bridge and stopped in a very scenic spot for lunch. After lunch we had some nice canters along the sandy trails before we reached the river. Here we untacked the horses and the tack was taken back to the lodge by boat. We waited with the horses until our guides returned (lots of hilarity singing very loud songs to keep the bears away!) and then the horses swam across the river and made their own way back to the stables at Tsylos Lodge. This evening was ‘BBQ’ night and we had lovely steaks cooked to perfection! Bit of a party atmosphere and lots of recounting of our adventures!

After breakfast we left the lodge at about 09:30 and travelled the hour and a half back to the airstrip. It was quite sad to see the mountains disappearing into the distance.

A South African Adventure at Ant’s

South Africa is one of our most popular destinations for a horseback holiday, with a diverse landscape, big game viewing opportunities, excellent accommodation, beautiful horses and all offering value for money. In The Saddle’s own Gail Tennant finally got to find out why so many people choose South Africa for their equine adventure, here is the second instalment of her blog where she enjoyed a stay at Ant’s Lodges in the Waterberg…

Pure luxury and exploration at Ant’s
After a short drive between Horizon and Ant’s Lodges I settled in to my cottage at Ant’s Hill. Ant’s Lodges are two beautiful and luxurious lodges each set in their own private game reserve owned and run by the Babers, whose family have lived in the Waterberg since 1865!

I was shown to my accommodation for my stay, which was the Family Cottage. This consisted of three bedrooms, a spacious living room and a verandah. The master bedroom had a king size four-poster which was extremely comfortable. One of the highlights of this room had to be the waterfall shower, which was quite a unique experience. There is a twin bedroom with a bathroom, which is shared with the annex children’s room. Both rooms were also spacious and it was very tempting to sleep in a different room each night! It had been beautifully decorated complete with twisted tree trunks to make the door frames. The views from the verandah were spectacular with everything rich and green, although unfortunately I didn’t spot any game only a few lizards! It was very peaceful to just sit on the verandah and read a book when not out riding. All the cottages at Hill were spaced out from each other allowing for guests to feel secluded enough to enjoy their own private holiday/honeymoon.

Family Cottage is absolute bliss

The first morning started with a lovely breakfast and then a ride at 8.30am. I rode Phinda who was very straightforward and a comfortable ride. We were taken out by Sam, who has been guiding at Ant’s for 13 years and before that at Horizon for 7 years so he was extremely knowledgeable, particularly about the bush plants and which ones were most commonly used in medicines. After lunch we went out again, this time I rode 19 year old Noosa who was older but still a fast and fun ride! We got to see lots of game and rode for about 2 hours before enjoying sundowners back at the lodge around 7pm.

The next day I rode Shakira as we went on the hunt to find some buffalo! It was fun tracking prints and we eventually found them, along with some giraffe too! We also got to have a lovely gallop along a sandy track and to swim in the dam with the horses. That evening some of the guests had opted to go do the big 5 game drive in another reserve whilst others went to the rhino feeding at Nest, so it was just me riding in the afternoon. I rode a chestnut mare called Nairobi who was a young ex-racehorse. She was a lovely ride, really uncomplicated, easy to stop and moved well off the leg. I couldn’t believe her age and that she had been a racehorse, as she did not behave this way! This ride was fast and we could go for some long canters that were really exhilarating. We made our way up to the highest point on the reserve of 1200 metres. Just the other side of the hill, Jan was waiting with some sundowners and snacks, the view watching the sun disappear from up there was amazing and you could see right across the Waterberg.

A change of scenery
The next day I rode from Ant’s Hill to Ant’s Nest, we saw various game along the way and had some great canters. After a delicious buffet lunch of chips, bruschetta, melon and feta salad, venison gazpacho and calamari we rode out hoping to help find a buffalo bull who had been injured fighting with another over territory, we saw lots game, including rhino, but didn’t find the buffalo!

At Ant’s Nest I stayed in the Sable Suite, which is upstairs of the main building. There is a large spacious living area with a beautiful fireplace for those winter nights. The master bedroom had a lovely four-poster bed with a large window which looked out over the pool and reserve. The bathroom off the master bedroom was huge and probably about the same size as the bedroom itself! There was a twin room as well with its own smaller bathroom. Both rooms had some beautiful paintings on their walls of various bush animals, some of which were painted by Ant Baber. The rooms at Nest are closer together and there were plenty of other guests to chat to around the pool making it a very social atmosphere.

Spectacular sights
While the game sightings were spectacular at both Lodges and we could get extremely close to giraffe and sable for some photos, the rhino are often sighted close to Nest as they are fed near to there. After arriving back from sundowners one evening the rhino were grazing the grass just beyond the wall of Nest. We were able to sit and just watch these beautiful creatures which were almost close enough to touch. It was a truly magical experience!

The next morning we were still on the hunt for the injured buffalo. The rangers who look after the rhino had found fresh tracks in the early hours of the morning so we headed off to one of the hills. Ant was in radio contact with those looking from a vehicle and we soon found the bull and were able to get quite close to it. The wounds had healed so the vet did not need to be called thankfully.

Culinary delights
The food at Ant’s is out of this world and my diet went out the door! There was plenty of choice at breakfast from fruit, yoghurt, pastries to full English breakfast. Lunches were quite light usually accompanied by a salad. There is high tea before the afternoon activity with plenty of cakes to go around! Dinner is always introduced by the chef and the description alone will have your mouth watering before it arrives on your plate! My particular favourite were the salmon pancakes!

Saying goodbye to Africa
On my last morning I had the chance for one last ride out. The sky was very dark in the distance and we did wonder how long of a ride we would get until the storm hit. We rode for about 45 minutes only seeing a few kudu and blesbok as the storm rolled in and we had to abandon the ride. Once the storm had passed Moses took us out for a game drive and we saw a range of types of deer and also a small herd of giraffe. Then it was time to head back to Johannesburg to fly home!

A lovely letter from Rendola

We love hearing all the news from our In The Saddle destinations and this letter from Jenny and the team at Rendola in Italy really brought a smile! We love how honest and personal she is when she writes to us and her passion for riding, and life in general, is infectious! We can’t wait to go back to Rendola…

Dear friends,
First of all, may I wish you all a Happy New Year! Somehow the number 2015 has a nice feel to it, don’t you think (is it because it is divisible by three and five?), and I hope that this will be reflected in the months to come.

I have to admit that 2014 was not a particularly good year for Rendola (though it had ups as well as downs). Bookings for riding weeks were rather a little lower than usual and the Italian recession has reduced the local clientele; but what was worse for us olive-growers was the fact that the olive-oil crop was a complete disaster. Because of the mild winter 2013-2014, followed by an uncharacteristically cool and rainy summer, the olives were attacked by a parasitic insect: they were, as we (!) Tuscans say here, ‘bacati’. At first we thought that only the olives that had fallen to the ground were affected, but when Sergio (Pietro’s son) started picking the ones still on the tree he found that those were rotten, too. So we didn’t have just a SHORTAGE of oil this year, but simply not a SINGLE DROP! Farmers had the same experience all over Tuscany and also elsewhere, maybe it will have been a coup di grace for Tuscan agriculture. Luckily we still have quite a lot of oil left over from last year and we are guarding this jealously so that you will still have some to drizzle on your salad (just a drizzle, mind you) when you visit us this year. As some of you have already planned to do: I see that our bookings are up this year, with several amongst you making return visits. (No one, however, can beat Margaret, for whom it will be her twelfth riding week at Rendola!)

Jenny and Silver at Rendola

Of course we like to have new guests as well. I have just had a booking from a couple living in KwaZulu Natal, wanting to organize a family gathering over the Easter holidays. (No, I didn’t know where it is either, though the word ‘Zulu’ gives us a clue.) There will be eleven of them spanning three generations. We have had at least four similar groups, sometimes coming from different countries, it makes me feel as if Rendola is in the centre of the world, rather like Jerusalem on medieval maps! Such groups have always been great fun, with a lot of merriment as well a certain amount of amicable bickering as various strong-willed family members of different generations can’t come to an agreement as to a programme: some are interested in Culture, others decidedly are not, some want to ride – usually the girls, whatever their age, from 8 to 80 – others are terrified of horses, some are furiously active while others intend to enjoy a bit of dolce far niente. Usually in the end they split into different groups each doing his own thing, and then they all meet up for dinner in the evening. I expect it’ll be the same this time, the important thing is that they should all have fun in their own way.

Idyllic Italian Views

I’ve been having fun, too, working on the new website. One of our problems is that the best time for horseback riding is in the spring and the autumn, which means that for much of the year work is slack. So in this new website we are going to try to reach out to a wider range of client, not just riders. After all, the very best time to visit the art cities is in the winter, when there are no crowds or queues and you can enjoy looking at artworks without a horde of other visitors holding up and clicking away on their i-phones or i-tablets or whatever – WITHOUT ACTUALLY LOOKING AT THE ARTWORKS AT ALL! It drives me mad. The months of March and November, cool but not cold, are the best for cycling, while the summer, too hot for riding, is ideal for joining a cookery course as there are so many kinds of seasonal fruit and vegetable available, often from our own kitchen garden. Now don’t get me wrong, riding is still our main activity; but in order to survive in this competitive world (and pay the taxes, very high in this country – for those who pay them) we must widen our appeal and that is the aim of this new website. (Getting people to see it is another kettle of fish: perhaps you can give me a hand?) Do have a look at it, anyway.

Having fun at Rendola

Some of you will see your own photos on the website and I have to apologise now if I didn’t ask for your permission to publish them, for the simple reason that I can’t remember who sent which. And if your photos have NOT been published, please do not be offended! There is not room for more than a certain number, so from time to time we will change them, as I am told that we have to do to keep the website alive (makes it sound like a baby bird that constantly needs feeding). However, I think you will agree that it is a lovely and original website with none of those irritating gimmicks that get on your nerves (my nerves, anyway). It’s possibly a little old-fashioned – like its creator…

Cut the cackle, you may say, but what about the horses? Most of you have already been to Rendola and will be glad to hear that all last year’s horses are still with us. Some of the oldies, of course, work mainly in the ring, but there are plenty of younger horses to take on the rides out: though even Silver, one of the veterans, is still raring to go! There is a new horse, however, Gina Lollo, a nine-year-old black Sicilian mare with a very gentle nature, whom I believe will be good in the school as well as the trail, being very responsive to the aids. We may buy in another horse as spring approaches.

And how is THIS veteran, the one writing this letter? Well, last winter I had a fall – not from a horse, what did you think? No, I slipped on some wet leaves while walking downhill. This made me lame for a while, though riding was luckily no problem. The fall had brought on a borsitis in my hip, but this has almost disappeared after a few physiotherapy sessions. This year I have been furthering my studies of medieval art, which has become a passion, so stop me if I start boring you with my newly acquired knowledge… I have also been working on my autobiography – only as owner of a riding centre, so nothing TOO personal! As for the Rendola team, we have great news about our instructor Eraldo and his wife Martina: they are now the proud parents of a baby son, Laerte Raduel. Sergio, with the help of his daughter Sara and her husband Francesco (they married last June), Marco and Franca have been organizing dinners down at our restaurant in the village of Rendola. These dinners are centred on a particular ingredient, such as pumpkin, turkey, duck and so on, and have become increasingly popular among the locals. Franca has also held a couple of cooking courses here in our kitchen, which I know were very successful.(I have only the role of interpreter, don’t worry, I know my cooking skills are very limited.) She needs to improve her English, so this winter I am giving her another series of lessons: “Now I am putting a slice of mortadella on each slice of beef” – that sort of thing. Oh yes, I have also proposed ‘English weekends (full immersion)’ on the Italian version of the website. This obviously will not interest any of YOU, but have a look all the same as there is an unusually glamorous picture of me actually wearing a DRESS! (A very rare occurrence, I can tell you).

What a spectacular view!

What a spectacular view!

Yes, I knew I’d forgotten something. I must now pay tribute to all the ‘workawayers’ who have helped us over the season, both in the stables and in the house. They get full board and lodging and riding in exchange for work and I must say that I don’t know how we could manage without them. They are Mareike (Germany), Aurélie (France), Katie (USA), Ali (USA), Sandra(the Netherlands), Nikki (Germany) Katie (GB) and Sophie (Ireland). There was also Katarina who came to write a book and did sterling work in the kitchen. I am sincerely grateful to you all. If I’ve forgotten anyone please forgive me, as my memory was never my strong point and it’s not getting any better.

Well, I do hope that some of you will return to Rendola, to ride, cycle, walk or whatever. And if you can’t for some reason come, could you tell your friends about us? The show must go on!

Best wishes,
Jenny and her team

A wonderful adventure on the Horizon

South Africa is one of our most popular destinations for a horseback holiday, with a diverse landscape, big game viewing opportunities, excellent accommodation, beautiful horses and all offering value for money. In The Saddle’s own Gail Tennant finally got to find out why so many people choose South Africa for their equine adventure. Here is the first instalment of her South African adventure…

Holidaying at Horizon
In December 2014 I traveled to Johannesburg to begin my adventure in South Africa. My first stop was Horizon, which is in the heart of the Waterberg Plateau, a few hours north of Johannesburg. Having been welcomed wholeheartedly, I was shown to my room in Rock Lodge, which overlooked the lake and was beautifully presented with rose petals on the bed and all the information I could possibly need during my stay.

It wasn’t long before I was enjoying a ride, on a nice forward going horse called Sparky, whilst enjoying the chance to view some of the fauna and wildlife, including zebra and warthog, before finishing up watching the sun go down on top of a rock overlooking the reserve. It was a magical start to my stay at Horizon.

After my first night’s sleep, and a good breakfast, we headed out at around 8am for our first ride. Guided by Shengie, who has a vast knowledge of the local fauna, we saw warthog, zebra, impala and giraffe before heading back for a delicious lunch and having a few hours to relax and soak up the sun! Then at 4pm we had the opportunity to learn how to play Polocrosse! I rode a horse called Toogs, a bay gelding in his late teens. He was very forward going, with a great turn of speed on the pitch. It was all great fun and we all got very competitive!

After breakfast on day three we were planning to try our hand at cattle mustering! I was on board Toogs again and we headed out to the cattle camp, however where the 50 heifers were supposed to be was empty! They were nowhere to be found! We instead took a different route and managed to see 5 kudu females, 2 zebra, a family of warthogs with 3 baby warthogs only a few days old, and a giraffe. We then changed horses and went swimming in the dam! I rode Swamp Billy who lived up to his name, as he really loved the water, it was great fun!

The next day some of the guests went on an elephant safari, but I stayed at Horizon with two other guests and went on a leisurely ride, meandering through the reserve, on a piebald mare called Storm. The hippo had been in the dam opposite the lodge so we headed there first to have a better viewing where we saw one male (called Motomoto), two females and a young baby hippo. We were able to get close to the water line and the baby was very curious and brave! Once back at the lodge I took Storm swimming in the dam before lunch and then had some time to relax before having a lot of fun doing Western games in the afternoon! The games consisted of a test to determine the team with the fastest walk, slowest canter and fastest trot, as well as bending races with a cup of water trying to get as much in the bucket at the end and also barrel races. After a quick shower we watched the sunset while the local gospel choir sang as we sipped our sundowners – it was very peaceful!

Camping out
My next adventure was to spend two nights at Camp Davidson. We took a faster paced ride, with plenty of canters, on our journey to the camp and got the chance to track a male giraffe and see kudu and zebra along the way! Camp Davidson has been built high in the bushveld above the Matlapeng Valley and gives you the chance to explore the area from a tented camp nestled in the heart of the wooded hills. It provides you with the opportunity to spend a night or so living life by the campfire and has its own chef and camp housekeeper. We enjoyed a lovely lunch and iced guava juice, took a dip in the pool and had a nap and then took a leisurely ride on that side of the hill before an evening drink while watching the sunset and a delicious dinner of kudu stew with chocolate covered strawberries for dessert!

The next morning we were woken by Frans calling good morning and bringing hot drinks to our tents at 7am. That morning’s ride was quite warm as we meandered our way through the reserve. We met up with the others for a bush brunch at around 11am, which consisted of bacon, boer wors (sausage), scrambled eggs, hash browns, baked beans and fried tomatoes! Tea that afternoon came with a large gooey chocolate cake which was just heavenly. We then embarked on a lovely afternoon ride which took us along various tracks with times where we could trot and canter. We had our sundowners together on the plains with zebra, giraffe, warthog and eland surrounding us as the sun went down.

My final day was started with a hot beverage in my tent at Camp Davidson, before a breakfast on the deck looking across to the plains game. Our ride took us on one of the faster trails on the far side of the reserve and we went through a small village, which was still using mud houses to live in. We had the chance to really open up our horses as the route was straight and open with no aardvark holes. Then it was back to Horizon for a last tea and cake before I departed for the next leg of my African exploration!
