Quinta do Rol - Portugal

Quinta do Rol

5 star rating   7 April 2019

Ryla Beth (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) High standards and nothing was too much trouble. | The horses at Quinta do Rol are very classy and are very highly trained. Most of them are stallions but they were calm and relaxed even when being ridden in the arena with another stallion. Don’t think you’ll get on these horses and immediately become the next dressage world champion. This is a training establishment and if you put the work in you’ll soon be performing high level dressage moves. The two instructors are knowledgeable and experienced and good humoured. Every day there is a lot of thought put into the selection of the horse most suited to enabling your learning goals. If you are looking for a riding holiday to improve your dressage then this will be for you

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation was well presented, very clean and comfortable. The food was tasty, plentiful and satisfying. They are superb at catering for a list of food intolerances.

All the staff are welcoming, caring and efficient. The first two nights I was the only guest and the owner Rita came and chatted with me at dinner so I was not dinning alone.

Rita is very passionate about delivering high quality customer service and it really shows.

The equine facilities are superb and Pedro the head instructor runs the place with efficiency and calmness.
