The standard of teaching and horses was amazing and made the holiday. Exceeded my expectations.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Accommodation was basic but very clean. The food was poor, using cheap ingredients. We were not expecting the food to be complicated, but better ingredients should be used to massively elevate the experience.

The overall feeling of accommodation was as if we were working dressage students staying at the house of a trainer, rather than an expensive holiday experience.

(ITS NOTE: Thank you very much for your feedback. We are currently following up your comments regarding the food).

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

It was brilliant, and I loved the brochure. Abbie was very helpful and informative.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Overall wonderful, the most amazing riding experience. The instructors Pedro and Goncales were fantastic and taught us so much in a short period of time.

If the accommodation and food were treated like a hotel rather than a training camp, the overall holiday would be dramatically improved. One guest brought her own food to meals to avoid eating the food provided.
