Just had a fantastic few days riding at Pinetrees. The other members of my party were all playing golf and Bev was so accommodating in finding me times that matched their tee times. From the moment I arrived everyone was so helpful and friendly, I was greeted by a very helpful and friendly Keira who was on work experience. I started with a 30 minute lesson with Maria & Bev so they could assess me and match me with the right horse, which also served me well for the hacks as my bad habits were corrected and front of mind so I rode well. As I did four days Bev planned in different routes, some woodland and some beach. My favourite was the ride to the beach on Count, led by Daniel. I met some other lovely riders too and at the end of every ride I was invited to join the team for a drink and a natter, where I got some great recommendations for restaurants, taxis, days out, wine tasting and more!
I can highly recommend Pinetrees and would love to return in the future.

I think I was the first rider after Lockdown.
Bev, the owner of Pinetrees Horse Riding
facilities, greeted me wearing a mask. Fran,
her assistant, then took me to get my
boots, chaps and hat.
Since I know how to ride, Bev took me for
a terrific ride through the forest. I enjoyed it
so much I came back every Wednesday
for the entire month of June. We saw
men harvesting cork and Bev told me about all the vegetation as she has lived
in the Algarve most of her life. All the horses are well schooled and a joy to ride.
Everyone who is new to the yard wears
a mask but not when they are riding.
Everyone does their best to do social
distancing.
I highly recommend Bev as a riding teacher, which I watched while have a coffee after our rides. Hope to bring my sons next month for some lessons.

I did a 2 hour hack with Daniel around the pine forest, dunes and local area. After great communications with Bev she matched me to a great little horse and we had lots of fun. I was also able to borrow jods, boots and a hat which saved my holiday luggage allowance. I am an experienced rider and would recommend to any other experienced riders who are wanting a great ride and not a steady trek.

I went for a ride out in Pinetrees two times during my trip to Algarve in January and both were absolutely lovely experiences. The stable and the surroundings are just stunning. The horses, property, dogs, everything is very well cared and people are all lovely and helpful! Bev is amazing and her the knowledge about horses and the nature of Algarve is admirable and so inspiring! Balu is a lovely sleepy giant and I had very nice rides out. And ah the forests and nature around there, no words!

I have ridden lately only when traveling, but this experience really did wake up my interest for riding as a hobby again - I just booked my first riding lesson back home after over 10 years break.

Thank you!

My 14-year old daughter has been going to pinetrees for 8 years and absolutely loves it. Bev’s lessons are very good and she explains things in a way that my daughter understands why she has to do things in a certain way. She always says she learns more in about 5 lessons in Portugal than in a whole year at home!

I booked a couple of rides at Pinetrees in advance of our trip to Portugal. We arrived too early, but Bev didn't mind, she was there to greet us and sat us down in the shade with a most welcome pot of tea while she and her staff prepared the horses.

Bev selected very suitable horses for us. I am an experienced rider so I took a more forward-going chestnut mare, while my (adult) son (who rides only occasionally) rode a massive and beautiful sure-footed gelding.

The horses are all superbly cared for, and the tack in excellent condition. Both my son and I borrowed jodhpurs, chaps, boots and helmets - there was a vast choice of sizes of each to choose from so we could be as comfortable as possible.

The riding was lovely on sandy trails through the pines, and at this time of year, wildflowers and herbs underhoof. An absolute joy. These were gentle rides, with occasional trots and a few lovely canters.

Overall, the attention to detail and customer care was exemplary. If and when I return to the Algarve, I'd have no hesistation in riding again at Pinetrees. Thoroughly recommended.

Having just completed ten riding lessons at Pinetrees Riding Centre I feel compelled to write and recommend. Bev, owner and instructor, was fantastic at adapting the pace of learning so that it was both manageable and fun. The horses are all lovely and so well cared for. All the equipment was provided and this was of an excellent quality. I had a fabulous time both riding in the arena and exploring the beautiful countryside. I can’t wait to return - thank you Bev and all of your team.

My 8 year old rides often at home (UK) and on holiday. These stables are wonderful. Extremely patient, encouraging staff with bags of experience they are happy to share with youngsters. I would not hesitate to recommend

I rode with Bev last week, we did a 2hr hack which took in the woods and beach. Was a lovely ride and a fantastic way to see the area. The horses were good and Bev makes sure you are happy with your horse. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a very calming way about her, that gives you confidence if you are a bit nervous.

I took my own hat and boots as I had decided to try and book to ride, however Bev has those available too.

Should I be back in the area, I will definitely be going back. Thoroughly recommend riders to visit.

Made my holiday.

Excellent riding as always at Pinetrees. I have been a few times before and it’s like coming back home. I turn up and enjoy trail riding on Count with Bev, Daniel and Maria. Lots of fun to be had in the woods popping over logs and nice long canters. Great stables.
