Equescapes developed this program to inspire young riders to take their riding international. A passion for horses is a gateway to experience another country,culture, and language, while forming intercultural connections and networking within the equestrian community across borders.
Nothing brings people together like a shared passion for horses and riding!
This trip gives students the opportunity to become part of a small group whose all-inclusive itinerary will include riding and equestrian activities as well as cultural tours and excursions. Some programs also include a homestay, service project, or both.
Geared towards independent students who seek a uniquely personalized experience, this program places students with a homestay family of horse owners or riders involved in the local equestrian community, with the opportunity to participate as a working student. The student may focus on either a language and culture component or a local service project, or both.
Programs can also be arranged for two students wishing to travel and be housed together. This option can also be applied to families or family members wishing to travel together for a hands-on, education experience. Riders will participate as working students and may also focus on either a language and culture component or a local service project, or both.
