On first round been with a great instructor who was very experienced, knows English, German, Portuguese and maybe many more languages. That guy was so funny and made the... More

Everyone at the centre was fantastic and spoke perfect English (the main guide Jody moved to the Algarve two years ago from... More

Just returned from a magical early morning 1 and a half hour ride from the stables, across the nature reserve and along the flat sandy beach for 35euros. It was the quiet winter season but the day was sunny and the sea flat calm. Jodie was a sensitive leader, friendly and encouraging to an OAP who last rode over 30... More

I found it really lovely, rode through a natural park. I felt the guide genuinely wanted me to have a nice ride. I was a little nervous of cantering and he really helped my confidence. This was without a doubt the best thing I did, in my three weeks in Portugal. I loved it so much going again before I... More
