Zip Travel – Equestrian Tours
Zip Travel’s first foray into the equestrian world was in 2006, when we organised a tour to Aachen for the World Equestrian Games. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, running tours to high profile eventing competitions, including the major championship of the season (Olympics, Worlds and Europeans), with numbers and popularity growing each year.
Such is the demand, that we are expanding this side of the business to take in more of the highlights of the international equestrian calendar, with tours to competitions across the disciplines.
As well as running tours to shows and events, we are involved in the travel logistics and management for many familiar names on the equestrian scene, including sponsors, competitors and officials at Hickstead, Royal Ascot and the Dublin Horse Show to name but a few.
We organise tours to major competitions spanning the disciplines, taking in all the competitive action from the arena or cross country course. Wherever there is the chance to watch the trot-ups, opening/closing ceremonies or anything extra at all, we go along so you can immerse yourself entirely in the competition and not miss a second of the action!
The week is also packed with other trips to give you a flavour of the local area. From wine tasting in Pau (CCI****) to visiting the National Stud near Malmö (Europeans 2013) or a castle tour in Strzegom (Europeans 2017) – there is something for everyone. If your friends or partner wants to come on the trip but isn’t “horsey”, we can put together a catalogue of other suggestions of things to do on their week away.
We are happy to tailor the tour to suit you, for example if you require different flights, or have something you particularly want to see when you’re there, we will go as far as we possibly can to make this happen! Please contact us to start the conversation.
If there is a national or international event you would really like to go to that doesn’t appear on our tour list, don’t worry! Let us know your requirements, then leave it to us to book tickets, hotels and travel. No job is too big or small, we are just happy to provide a service that allows people to take in all the competitive action without worrying about where they’re going to stay or how they’re going to get home. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
Nothing beats travelling with your friends and we have got that covered!
Simply choose which event you would like to go to and leave it to us to organise the rest. With hundreds of events around the world to choose from, a good starting point for your journey is the FEI Calendar, then contact us and let the planning commence!
Whether it’s a riding club wanting to do a bit more than the usual social, a team seeking inspiration from their heroes or a group of friends wanting to have the best time, we will find the best tickets, accommodation and travel to suit your needs and budget.
We can help organise any further adventures you want to add to your holiday, so get ready to have some fun!
