Atlantis and Green Island Trail - Azores

Experience Level

Green Island Trail

4 star rating   25 June 2017

The tack was all in good condition. The horses were essentially rescue horses from the island and whilst all well mannered, varied in quality. I rode six horses over the week and 'liked' one, Phil rode four and 'liked' one.

We had an enjoyable week's holiday, but felt it was a holiday with riding, rather than a riding holiday. This was probably down to our choice of this trip rather than a problem with the trip itself. We didn't feel that the riding was challenging, a lot of it on hard tracks but in some beautiful and stunning locations.

The ride was as described, but on reflection we would have been better seeking something more challenging and akin to some of the previous trips we have done.

The non-riding trips etc, were extremely good and the whole week was very well organised - a credit to Christina and Claude.

We would recommend this holiday to friends but would suggest it depends on the type of riding they enjoy and what they would be looking for.
