Caroline who has been on 5 In The Saddle rides. Yes, lovely and varied countryside. Very nice horses indeed that were well trained and very safe though still responsive. They are well cared for and obviously very much loved. Super lunches provided by Mamen. The hotel in Trujillo was excellent and the other places to stay were absolutely fine. Highly recommended.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The meal on the last night was a lovely location in the town square but not the best of food.... I’d find somewhere else. Otherwise the food was very good, great lunches and free-flowing wine!

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

It’s absolutely fine.
It was also very good of Sarah to liaise with Mamen as I was very concerned that I wouldn’t cope with my bad back.... that was very helpful indeed

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Only that Emilio is quite quiet, so don’t expect a lot of chit chat while riding.
