Horses were of a very high level with great stable manners. The grooms had everything ready in advance. The horses were well looked after and not over-ridden.

The horse I had was really nice.
Only problem was that its pace did not quite fit with the other horses as we climbed down the mountains.
It has to be said that I felt incredibly safe on the back of this horse.

The tour was intense (7hrs trekking) but very well organized. Walk and canter were possible and safe for us and for the horses. Emilio is a very experienced guide, discreet and professional. It was a relaxing touch of nature. The horses are very docile and well integrated. The daily routine of horse care has amazed me as there is a lot of attention to their well-being. Padded pads and talcum post massage with ad hoc brush, between the steps to follow. Love and respect for horses and management skills is evident. I wanted to put Cholo in my luggage for sure.

Unfortunately, I had to get a new horse after the first day because my horse became ill. The one I got after this was super sweet and easy. I probably matched better with my first one as he was more energetic.

Ranch Stay

4 star rating   2 September 2017

The riding was very pleasant and relaxing but was lacking in variety. The trail rides were varied in pace but the terrain was all pretty much the same: sandy tracks through scrub and woodland. There were no views to speak of and little of interest to see. We were also disappointed that there was nothing going on at the ranch in the way of training or breaking in horses. Apparently this is done in the winter months.

Horses were super and really well cared for. The tack could have been better maintained but ok.
The riding and accommodation were really good. Christina and Claude were very welcoming and attentive to details. All the staff were the same.

The riding is very varied as they take the horses to different parts of San Miguel. The island is very beautiful and you will want to return to see more.

Chief recognised the ability of the group and kept the pace appropriate for our experience (fast). Barney and he did a very good job of matching horses and riders. Just enough challenge for some, easy peasy for others.

Monte Velho horses never disappoint, beautiful in looks and in character too.

Great terrain- Monte Velho Lusitanos are excellent climbers! And plenty of land to explore and ride on.

First horse (Dede) was a match so I rode him for the rest of the week. He is a young Lusitano / Arab cross breed, a forward going and fast horse.

Due to my allotted horse being bitten I was given Manate, a great little horse whom Lindy said was her best. He was fast, very responsive and had a huge jump. The riding was much faster than I had expected, which was wonderful, a lot of fast cantering with spinning past trees and bushes and a couple of real gallops. Not for those lacking confidence.

The whole experience was much improved from my trip in 2003.

Herdsmen's Trail (Pyrenees High Mountain)

5 star rating   27 August 2017

Lots of climbing and downhill walking. It was necessary to be able to walk on steep paths downhill
with the horse for quite some time almost every day. Not many opportunities for trot or gallop, but we went occasionally at a fast pace.

We wanted to improve our riding of the Grand Prix movements and it was perfect that the horses were capable of this. The instructors were very knowledgeable and complimented the training we receive in England from International trainers.

Happy and fit horses. Some days more fun than others and I loved the days we could canter on one beach after another. The horses enjoyed it as well. It was not very warm, so horses and riders did not really get very warm or tired from the riding. This will vary depending on the time of year.

The riding was in a very convenient pace, a bit slower than originally expected, but with amazing views. It was a very good combination of half and full day rides and very well organized to ensure that we seen as many angles of the island and its beauties as possible. The terrain was good and we had great company. The guides were fantastic, they were very attentive, sharing information about the places we were visiting, about the nature and history. They were keen to hear our feedback about the horses we were riding and ready to adjust it to our needs and ability.

The Bulgarians have trot and gallop, no canter! We did no galloping, it was all cantering and there were places that would have allowed for a good old gallop. The terrain went from thick undergrowth that required a machete to be used to make a path, to wide recently harvested fields to canter along, grasslands, sunflower fields and rivers to cross. No lake swimming, they are not very keen on riders doing it especially as the water is not always that clean!
