Venture Co Worldwide

Since 1999 Venture Co has been organising tailor-maderides and group riding holidays to Africa, South America and India. We onlywork with stables that we have visited, checked out the horses and trust theowners, so that your horse riding holiday becomes a valued travel experienceand genuine adventure.

We always welcome conversations with you and give honest,frank opinions about matching you to the ride that suits your experience andexpectations, within the budget guidelines you set. You set the “wish list” andwe use our experience to transform it into the ideal itinerary. We love what wedo and welcome the chance to share our passion for horses, riding and travelwith you.

We hold ATOL license 5306 so your financial security isassured. Our out-of-hours service is comprehensive and complements the highstandards we set when putting together a riding holiday. We have organisedoverseas rides for the British Horse Society since 2002 and they are anorganisation that demands the highest standards of client service in thiscountry as well as best practices of horse welfare once overseas.

Giving somethingback: we work closely with overseas partners to raise standards of horsewelfare. A tangible example is the “Rajasthan Bit Exchange Programme”. We takepre-owned bits to India each year to swap them with local breeders, farmers andothers who work with horses. The bits we receive in return are sometimes piecesof wire, often rough-filed and even barbed bits. This is a small but tangibleway we can improve the welfare of some horses.
