Alentejo Trails - Portugal

Coastal Trail South to North

5 star rating   26 September 2021

Ann who has been on 5 In The Saddle rides. Superb experience | Yes more than, I was worried it wouldn't be fast enough for my husband who has a 'need for speed' but there were plenty of long collected canters on sandy tracks and we all rode forward going sweet tempered fit horses who were well schooled and cared for.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The food at the Verdemar was delicious, other food at the other two hotels was disappointing but we didn't go hungry and the food cooked for us on our picnic lunches by Anwar was so good, can't beat freshly grilled sea bas on a bbq and water melon for pudding.

If you could get rid of the horse flies the ride would be perfect but that's not up to you! Maybe 10 guests is 2 two many, but it was so lovely to ride with such an international crowd.
