Monte Velho

5 star rating   21 September 2019

Angela who has been on 5 In The Saddle rides. Relaxing, informative & fun. | Instructors able to assess riding faults very quickly & work on these progressively. On final lesson thrilled to ride movement not attempted before.
However, on occasions MV horses were schooled in the arena at the same time as two riders were having lessons. This may be fine for riders experienced in riding in busy warm up areas but for more novice riders trying to ride an unfamiliar horse, concentrate on one's instructor and worry about where another horse and rider are is quite stressful.
Loved the schoolmaster horses.

The owners of the stud are so welcoming and friendly. Even though the press were there to interview Diogo and film Equador they made sure that their guests were included & invited us to watch the stallion working for the cameras.
