Alentejo Trails - Portugal

Bottlenose Trail

5 star rating   3 July 2022

Lucia (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Just amazing!! | The riding was demanding for someone not adequately trained but always very pleasant and fun.
We had a lot of walking in beautiful landscape, long canters and amazing beach riding were the horses were very excited about!
I really liked how we were taking care of them, un-tacking them during lunch time and made them have a well deserved break.
Miguel the guide tries always to rotate them to don’t over work them and during the night they are kept in the field together.

5 star rating

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

I really don’t have any suggestions because in my opinion everything was really well organized!
Maybe abut the meeting point I could say it could have been a bit more specific, but we called the guide and we found it quickly.

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

Everything was fine

Do you have any other feedback for us?

This was one of the best holidays I have ever been, very well organized, amazing guide, lovely horses, variety of activities and amazing country with awesome wine and food!
I came back re-charged!
