Monte Velho

5 star rating   26 October 2019

Cilka who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Great for serious dressage riders | The dressage instruction was excellent. I was very tired at the end of the lesson! The trail rides were all similar, however. So while it was a pleasant ride, there wasn't much new to see each time we went out.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation was superb...probably the best I've had on a riding trip. The bed was so comfortable! The food was excellent and the staff who were served it were so nice. My only wish was that they had better dessert. One night we had an excellent chocolate cake, but that was only one time.

This place is best for people who are really into dressage, and perhaps want one or two trail rides.
