She really is an amazing guide to the local area and engaged the children in talks about the plant life as we were guided along. Rosie was... More

Safe, friendly and beautiful horses. Went round the local orange plantations and fields with two of the riding staff. Overall happy with experience, would go back to try a longer trek with the horses towards the beach.

The guide was a fabulous English lady, who was so friendly and also knowledgeable about the horse's and the surrounding area. My horse Goldie... More

The most memorable part of my riding experiences was by far the happy horses and happy staff! They made my ride around the beautiful portuguese countryside incredible and so much fun. All of the horses at this riding centre are relaxed, healthy and love their work (unlike several other riding centres I had experienced on holidays) The staff are so... More

Me and my partner enjoyed a two hour horse ride so much. It was defiantly one of our highlights to Albufeira. The staff were friendly and reassuring as it was my partners first time. Riding past orange trees up sandy paths was bliss. But to me it was lovely to see such well kept horses that obviously enjoy life and... More

The ride on the country side with Sarah was awesome. She was super nice and experienced and made my ride very enjoyable. I had the perfect horse for my height and weight and I had a lot of fun. Would really recommend it!
