Worldwide riding holiday specialists In The Saddle will be at their usual spot at Badminton Horse Trials - stand 58 - in the Trade Stand Village from May 1-4.
A number of guides from the horseback safaris in Africa will be on their stand throughout the event. These include John Sobey from the Okavango Delta in Botswana, Lucy Rufus from Songimvelo in South Africa and Mark Laurence from Kenya. Also at the show will be Trinstan and Lucinda Voorspuy from Deloraine as well as Gerti Kusseler from Wait A Little in South Africa.
 
Top eventers Lucinda and Clayton Fredericks recently visited Wait A Little where they swapped the usual hazards of trakehners and oxers for elephant, lion and rhino. They both survived the ordeal and In The Saddle wish Clayton well on his ride Nullabor, over this year's challenging Badminton cross-country course.
