We did not stay at the guesthouse (didn't even know there was one) -- came only for the riding. This visit was for my teenage daughter to take a 2-hour ride. When we arrived the staff was ready with the horses, but on seeing her they changed her to a horse they felt would be better for her -- really... More

I stayed for a week on a riding holiday. We were made very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. This is a guest house on a riding estate, where you can stay, and ride if you want, or take tours of the beautiful island. As there are not many hotels available, I think this is a perfect, informal and... More

Wen't here for a half-day riding tour. I'm a beginner and I felt very well taken care of by all the staff and everything was very well organised. The horse took good care of me as well :) All the horses are rescue horses so they really are doing a good deed as well. Will definitely come back!

We spent an amazing week at the Quinta da Terca. Christina and Claude are a lovely couple who cannot do enough for you. Christina arranged riding and sightseeing for the week. The horses are well cared for and suited for each rider's abilities. The highlight of the week had to be at Sete Cidades where we rode above the volcanic... More

Terrific place for a riding holiday, lovely horses, well organised rides with excellent guides, very good interesting food and charming accommodation. When not riding tours of the island are organised for you with a well informed guide. I really cannot fault the Quinta da Terca, I enjoyed a wonderful holiday there and have no hesitation in recommending it.

I really enjoyed staying here. Quiet.. clean.. friendly and the horseback riding trip? AWESOME. LOVE LOVE this place. Can't wait to return. Please do the day trip if you're an experienced horseback rider. They offer lessons with very patient trainers there as well.

Went on a half day tour with Kaisa (at least i think that was her name). Goo horses, nice planned trip. We felt well taken care of. One of the best ridingtours i have had abroad. Highly recomended. I hoe they keep up the good work for years to come, so many more get to join their tours.

Where to start, the island itself is perfect, beautiful rides the views are breath taking. Amazing horses listen so well. The guides are brilliant so informative and friendly. The house is stunning, beautifully decorated with welcome baskets and fresh flowers on arrival, such a wonderful touch. The food is delicious cooked beautifully. Last but defiantly not least is the family... More
