12 August 2012 |  Olympic medalist Mary King talks travel, teams and training!

In The Saddle is proud to present the Riding Holiday Show 2012, which will showcase many of the breathtaking destinations that equestrian travellers can embark upon around the world. Joining the show, to inspire with tales of her own equestrian adventures, is Olympic medalist, Mary King.

Having travelled across the globe in many capacities, from Olympic games, to horseback safaris, Mary King is one of the world’s most idolised event riders, with fans worldwide admiring her equine achievements and approachable attitude. Mary will be visiting the Riding Holiday Show to share her success stories and talk to visitors about her experiences over the years.

As a huge fan of travel herself, Mary is the perfect figure to enthuse and motivate visitors at the Riding Holiday Show. Her most recent equestrian adventure was to Macatoo in the Okavango Delta, Botswana where she spent a week on safari. “The trip was wonderful for so many reasons,” she states. “Being so far away from modern life felt like a real escape and I saw it as a privilege to be amongst wildlife going about their daily lives! Seeing the world by horseback and getting so close to animals such as elephant, giraffe and even lion was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget!”

The Riding Holiday Show takes place at the Royal Over-Seas League in London, on Saturday, 3rd November 2012 and is the only event dedicated to riding holidays worldwide. Visitors will get the chance to meet riding guides and experts from various destinations to get a taster of some of the culture and experiences available, receive exclusive show offers, enter competitions, talk to likeminded travellers and listen to talks by guests, including Mary King.
