I got to ride some stunning... More

Agree with all the positive comments about time spent with Katharine. She looked after me and my adult daughter very well and we had a lovely visit. She spotted our differing abilities and pinpointed how to help us in separate lessons. The hacks were great, varied terrain so different to home, and Katharine regularly checked we were happy with the... More

It was a dream come through spending 3 days with Katharine horseriding at Monte da Ribeira near Loule this August. The trails are absolutely beautiful and Katharine takes great care to match her horses with the riders experience. We went on trails through very quiet off road terrain where there was plenty of opportunity to walk, trot, canter and gallop... More

Monte da Ribeira offers visitors, of all levels of skill, a very personal and well catered to horse riding experience. I went as part of a group of five young adults and children (aged 21, 20, 19, 13, 9) for a one hour hack through the countryside. Katharine and her team are extremely friendly, professional and will go out of... More

Had an amazing holiday with Katharine, her family and Claire. From the moment we were picked up at the airport to the sad second we boarded for home we were completely taken care of. All the things you look for in a riding holiday are there. Katharine and her team are very experienced, and put us at ease straight away.... More

My Sister and I were staying in Faro and contacted Katherine to arrange a lesson and hack. We ended up spending the day with Katherine as she was so friendly and helpful! She collected us from the local train, I had a lesson on a fantastic dressage schoolmaster and we both had a hack in the beautiful countryside. She then... More

I visited Monte Da Ribeira for a riding holiday last week and I returned feeling completely refreshed and ready to start the new year. The owner, Katharine, made me feel very welcome and cooked up mouthwatering dishes every night and lots of homemade bread. Luckily the riding offset all the calories as hacking through the gorgeous surrounding countryside gave me... More

Katharine is a wonderful person with endless patience and full of fun and a huge confidence giver, not one ounce of panic about her! The stables... More
