5 star rating   14 October 2017

The horses were excellent, well above the normal trail ride standard. The were very well looked after as well.
The tack was the best I've had on a holiday for a long time - very comfy both for the horse and the rider. The saddles were very well fitted to the horses and never moved, and so all the horses had healthy backs.

Horse excellent - very fit and well behaved. Tack was a little scruffy but serviceable. I have ridden in many countries and think perhaps that we are a little obsessive about keeping leather in good order?!

I was the only guest on this ride-marvellous! The local agents and the hosts at the farm went out of their way to ensure I had the most marvellous trip. At the farm I was treated with the upmost kindness and on the second night was taken out to the pub as I was the only guest! I was enchanted by beautiful Iceland and by the charming Icelandic people. The horses were a complete joy - The focus was on having fun with your horse and enjoying the stunning natural landscapes. As soon as I got home I went on the in the saddle web site to have a look at trips to Iceland for next year.

The horses and tack are clearly of top quality, no problems there. As we know, horses are not a constant quantity and the one that I had did not represent the best or even the average of those available. That is not to say that it was unsuitable, just that it could have had a faster pace, particularly when walking; it could have had a more comfortable gait in trot and canter and it could have been less difficult to groom and tack-up. I just bring this to your attention to provide an honest reply, not to complain, because I did have a wonderful riding experience; it is just that at times, it was uncomfortable. (ITS comment: We are sorry to hear that you didn’t entirely enjoy your horse but we are glad that you had a great holiday overall.)

The riding was challenging, mainly because of the fast pace. Long canters are a feature of this holiday and it is important to be as riding fit as you can before you go. It was probably the best riding of my life and certainly met all my expectations.

We went on a different trail ride each day which was great. I would have liked to have ridden one of the GP schoolmasters but they were ridden by riders with more experience at that level which seemed fair.

The saddle was comfortable for both horse and rider.

The Dolphin Trail - not sure what I was expecting but the basic B&B's were far from basic and what lovely people the Portuguese are!

The guide is so enthusiastic and well organised. The food and accommodation was lovely.

Lovely company, landscapes, history and a very welcome swim in the dam.

On the whole the riding did meet expectations. However I was told that two of the horses that I rode did not do flying changes which I was a little surprised at. I really enjoyed the instructors Joao, and the two sisters. Coralie B and Cendrinne B they were excellent. I was not very impressed with the instructor Annie Morris who we seemed to have a lot of the time. Apparently we were not the only guests to complain about her.

The riding completely surpassed my expectations, the horse, guides, scenery, terrain and riding were all exceptionally good, only the weather wasn't as good as I expected, but it really didn't matter a jot!

The first day it was played safe according to our biographies, although my friend had a horse which spun around and tried to bite horses behind. Guides listened well to whether you liked the horse or type of horse for future rides.

Ant's Nest

5 star rating   7 October 2017

Yes, it did. Especially at Ant's Nest. There the horses go on the hack only once a day and they are all really well behaved. No grumpy/difficult horses at all and even the old ones are really sensitive and forward. Maybe because they didn't put me on one, but I didn't encounter any "touristic/dead/insensitive" horse. The guides were really good, especially Moses and David.

At Ant's Hill it took me 3 rides to find the right horses and the first horse they put me on, well, it took me half an hour of any possible expedient to wake him up. The second horse was so grumpy they I had to focus on her the entire time. There was a bit of a communication issue, in the sense that I conveyed the message that I wanted a different type of horse and they didn't listed so the guide swapped horses and gave me hers and then finally (and randomly) I landed on a horse I really liked 🙂
