Learn to Ride in a Week

5 star rating   20 August 2018

We were on a Learn to Ride week. I had had a couple of falls in my return to riding and had lost some confidence and my husband had lots of confidence but not much experience. We had a lesson with Christina on the first day and she suggested we do a combination of the Learn to Ride Week and the Atlantis week. We had a couple of theory lessons:- one learning how to prepare the horse for a ride, grooming, feet, tacking up and the other learning about the horses and their behaviours. Both really enjoyable. The riding started out around the local area and as the week went on we went to other parts of the island. Much of the riding is up and down hill and so the uphills were a perfect way to gain confidence and experience cantering. The landscape and views were amazing. The last day was great fun at Sete Citades. 5 hours in the saddle trotting/cantering around the rim of the crater of a volcano and then in the crater around the lakes at the bottom. Christina and her team identified quickly which horses would suit our level and we enjoyed them all.

Everthing about the holiday was exceptional and I had the best horse ever ! a really good match for my ability and I also had excellent lessons and great guides out with me. I can't rate the holiday enough. The place we stayed and the owners were just wonderful. What a great experience for my first holiday with in the saddle. Every one looks after you so well. I can't thank you all enough.
