Los Alamos - Spain

Villa Based Ride

5 star rating   22 May 2022

Sophie (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Absolutely Perfect! | The riding was amazing, I felt so confident on my horse and you could tell all the horses are well cared for.
Jose and Roberto were so knowledgeable and friendly and I felt in such safe hands throughout the entire trip. They couldn't do enough.
Rachael matched us all up perfectly, she came out with us on the first day to ensure we were all happy and confident and met us numerous times throughout the week and back at the stables.
The riding was relaxing, exhilarating, fun, and exciting all at the same time.
The entire team couldn't have done any more for you, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this holiday to anyone. I just wish I could have brought the horse home with me as he was so perfect!

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The family at the hotel were lovely, friendly and so welcoming and made it feel like a home away from home! The food was outstanding, I just wish I could have the recipes as it was so delicious. A member of the family sat with us each evening which was also a really lovely touch. They took us to the beach and showed us around the towns which was also amazing! I wouldn't hesitate to return.

The only feedback I do have is on the Thursday when we go to the horse show, I would be happy to have more of a lie in and have breakfast at the hotel and then go to the horse show later, as by Thursday you are pretty tired and sore. It would also allow the family to have a little lie in as they work so so hard during the time you are there!

Abbie was so great to deal with and covered everything we may need for the holiday. She regularly got in touch with updates and couldn't do enough to assist. Would not hesitate to book with In The Saddle again!

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

Payment was handled great and the booking too! No feedback in this area.
