I stayed one week on Quinta da Terca and I can not have been more satisfied. The location was perfect with only a small walk down to the beach. Clean, fresh and beautiful accommodation. Wonderful food, ecological fruits and vegetables from their own garden was served with every meal. Brilliant service with friendly and helpful staff. The riding was very... More

I booked through "Hidden Trails". Christina, Claude and staff were friendly and hospitable. The accommodations, meals, horses and guides were excellent. My room was very comfortable. A bottle of wine and beautiful basket of fruit with chocolate was waiting for me in my room. There was always plenty of hot water and fresh towels. My room was very clean. There... More

Spent a week here on a riding holiday, booked through In The Saddle, Sept 2013, Superb accommodation, fresh fruit basket and bottle of wine in the room on arrival. Food was excellent, horses so well cared for and good tack. Riding was varied and exciting, horses being transported out most days to cover different parts of the island, so you... More

So, the most important part first: the riding. I rode five horses over my week long stay (one three times as I expressed a preference for her). I felt each horse and ride was well matched to my ability. I was nervous before my arrival that the riding would be too advanced for me as I rode mostly as a... More

I recently came home from Azores and Quinta da Terca and I am so, so happy I decided to go for a horse riding holiday there. The owners of the farm were very friendly and hospitable, the staff joining the rides and working in the farm were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and firendly, the horses were well behaved and nice to ride...

If you want to see some of the great scenery of Sao Miguel from horseback, and you are a somewhat experienced rider, Quinta da Terça is a wonderful choice. Various rides are offered throughout the week, some of which involve transporting you and your horse to more distant parts of the island. They also provide some non-riding activities. If you... More

I have another riding holiday booked this year elsewhere and I am seriously thinking of canceling to go back to see Christina, Claude and the guides at Quinta. It was the most relaxing holiday I have ever had. Yes the staff don't want you tack up, groom etc only because you are on holiday and they want you to enjoy... More

Possibly the best riding holiday I have ever had. Food accommodation and staff were just fantastic. Just do it, you will love it. There are not many places I want to go back to but this is one. Thank you to everyone for making this the most wonderful time.

I've been on several riding trips, and I must say these are some of the best horses I've ridden. You know instantly that these horses are not only well cared for, but they are also well loved. They are well behaved and very well trained. The guides do an excellent job of matching riders with horses. If you want a... More
