Donnaldson who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Beautiful country, wild and rugged..... | I rode a really lovely young Lusitano gelding. I liked him very much. Well trained, and pretty.

The manor house that Pedro and Anabella restored is beautiful. The homecooked dinners were delicious. The lunches at the cafe were fine. It turns out that the better restaurant was closed for vacation until the last day I was there. I'm sure that usually one would have several lunches at the "better" restaurant.

My experience was rather unique, I think. I was the only guest. It rained nearly every day, so I could actually only ride three days. I did absolutely love the terrain. I felt really off the touristy track, which I enjoyed. Pedro and Anabella are delightful and interesting. And the days we couldn't ride, Pedro was sure to take me sightseeing and wine tasting. I also write. So to have several afternoons on my own at the beautiful restored house to read and write, with the rain falling gently outside, was delightful.
