“Very nice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

The guide is well experienced and goes easy on participants without experience. The horses are very well trained and follow the guide all the way. There's nothing much you need to do so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the trip.

“Horse Riding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We did horse riding for the first time and it was amazing. It was for myself wife and three children.
We never had any horse ridinng experience but as the trainers were very good we didnt need any experience. We rode on the horses for about 2 hours. we went along conutryside and to the beach and back.The owner and owners wife were very nice aswell as the trainer who took us out. I would definitely recomend this and if in Portugal i would do it again

“Amazing Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I rode alone with Tiago on the May bank holiday weekend...the best ride I've been on in years. What a lovely trainer, so happy, knowledgeable, gracious and is so clearly passionate for his profession and the animals. Beautiful beach ride, was able to canter the horses which you don't get much of anymore on these types of rides. Will be returning as soon as possible and will request a lesson AND a ride again with Tiago. Thank you so much for a truly memorable time.

“An hour well spent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Just done this today , having never riden a horse I've gotta say it was made very easy for us. Two adults and a child with no real experience. Very pleasent hour long stroll on the horses. Really enjoyed and wish we had done longer . Georgie (the owner) was very nice and chatted along with us all the way , offering advice along the route when needed. Would recommend this to anyone and would def go again.

“Unexpected treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Yesterday was a little cooler and breezy so we decided to try this from recommendations on TripAdvisor. It was a 20 minute walk to the venue from our villa. Lovely location, horses looked well treated and cared for, and the ride was great. Across the nature reserve felt like riding on a carpet of flowers, the number of swallows and martins was incredible as was the other wildlife spotted.

€60 for two for a couple of hours may seem pricey but it felt like money well spent to me, even if my horse wanted to treat the entire landscape as lunch and started nibbling everything!

Two tips. Wear narrow fitting SHOES if you haven't got the kit as I struggled to get my trainers through the stirrups which caused a bit of a problem went she did finally get the message to move. Also wear jeans. This will save your calves from stinging harnesses and from the mosquito's.
