Atlantis and Green Island Trail - Azores

Green Island Trail

5 star rating   17 July 2019

Mare who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Atlantis and the Green Island Trail - Wonderful horses and guides and staff! | I also loved that Nelson gave us a riding lesson before our time out on the trails - he's an excellent teacher and was able to assess our skill level and no doubt helped with us matching up with the best horse for us.

The riding mostly met my expectations - beautiful trots and canters along dirt paths, blooming hydrangeas, lantana, and ginger lilies all around. I do think my skill level wasn't up to par, so I wasn't comfortable at a gallop, as most of the others were.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Our room was lovely, with a fan, and windows opening to the outdoor lounge area. We were welcomed with a lovely bottle of red wine and a fruit basket!

Breakfasts were amazing - varied fruits, breads, soft-boiled eggs; lunch was salad and sometimes a casserole, or out on the trail pizza, cheese, bread; dinners were very special, soup, bread, sometimes fish, great creamy sauces, wines and always an amazing dessert. Thursday night the surprise dinner out was beyond amazing!

Oh and the neighbouring stall at dessert time is fantastic!

I also so appreciated the sensibilities of all the staff and their love of all animals, not only the horses, but the dogs as well. As well as their devotion to rescuing horses and dogs, and the amazing rehab and trying they do.
