Horse Riding in Vale Parra, Albuferia. Have used this family run stables twice and the horses are well suited to each rider age and capability. Very safety conscious, with good quality hats and body jackets for children. I took my 5 year old girl and she was very safe. Go early morning or evening to get a chance to ride... More

Our daughter, who rides, wanted to go out whilst we were on holiday. This being the nearest to where we were staying. A little difficult to get hold of / book as no one spoke English when we turned up to see, but phoned the owner for us, no reply to email when we made a further enquiry and the... More

This was our second time here. My partner is a novice and he rode Felina, who was nice and quiet. I used to ride a lot and I rode Fidalgo, who was great once he got going, and very well behaved and calm for a 6 year old. Lukas was our guide and he was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional.... More

Any poor reviews about this place are purely about peoples expectations and readiness to ride, the owners were friendly and informative taking the time to walk us round the stables and giving background information about the horses. We had a lovely hack down to the beach and then had the opportunity to gallop along the sand at full belt, the... More

It was a very pleasant experience. We are both beginners but felt in full control of the horses. The guide was very social and took many good photos as you can see. It was very hot for the legs as the jeans were stretch when sitting on a horse. When I go horse riding again I will bring a blanket... More

Will try keep it short but so much went wrong here. My partner (who told them) had no experience, as did others in the group, was given no guidance or instruction on how to manage the horse (even how to hold the reins or get it to stop). The instructor was useless, didn't appear interested at all and just kept... More

I had ridden a bit but over 30 years ago. My girlfriend had ridden once before. The horses were chosen to suit our ability and we had a lovely ride out through the nature reserve and along the beach helped along by Jodie. A really great morning. Its a little off the bearen track but the taxi drivers know how... More

Myself, my sister and 9 year old niece rang in the morning to enquire and were booked in for the 3pm ride! Neither of us have experience but were easily catered for. You can tell the owner is very passionate about her horses and took the time to show us what to do and how to control them. We had... More

I have been riding at the Quinta da Saudade tables since I was a child. The horses are very well looked after and very well behaved. There are rides for small children, inexperienced and experienced riders. Your requirements are met with friendly advice from Jose and his team. There are beautiful walks through the countryside and along the beach and... More
