This is now my sixth visit to Pinetree's as I have absolutely loved each experience I have had there. I had a thoroughly enjoyable lesson with Bev, before heading out on the sand trails through the pine forest. Safety of both the horse and rider...More
I had a most enjoyable lesson with Bev and her Lusitano gelding. What a beautiful creature and I trusted him completely.

Went on a lovely hack with a teenager of a similar age and riding level to me. Bev, who led the ride, was not only highly knowledgeable in horses but also the nature along the hack which was interesting. Beautiful views and opportunities to take...More
We went on a family ride, the 1/2 in 1/2 out. This was great for myself and my sister who rode in childhood and my parents who had not been on a horse before. We were all able to go out on a hack together,...More

I am quite sure that the team at Pinetrees can provide you beach rides :) Just look at the website and ask the owner, she is a really kind person who answers your questions immediately. It will be a two/ three hours ride and is definitely worth it! I loved the landscape and views :)

Hi, the stables are only about 20 minutes drive from Vilamoura. As I understand it, there are a choice of rides to take. The ride I took started with a quick test in the arena. Then we rode out, crossing through the local smart residential area. We rode down to visit the lake and spot the wildlife and then through pine trees to look out points to get beautiful views out over the ocean. The ride looped on and round through the sandy pine forest, with some trots and canters, to bring us back to the stables in a 'circular' ride. I got the impression the team at Pinetrees were very accommodating and flexible, adapting the ride to suit the rider's interests and experience. Hope this helps.
