Monte Velho - Portugal

Monte Velho

5 star rating   5 June 2022

Kate who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Monte Velho - Fantastic | The horses all exceeded my expectations and were an absolute joy to ride.

The main large arena seems to be the preferred choice for the trainers. There can be up to 6 people riding in the arena at any one time (including instructors) which makes it very difficult to keep out of each others way. We would have enjoyed it far more if we had been able to have our lessons alone in either the covered or outdoor arena.

The next time we book we will also ask to have our lessons (husband & wife) at different times so that we can watch each other and take photos and videos of each other.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Accommodation is excellent and exceptionally clean.

There is wine included in the restaurant but it would be nice to have the alternative to have the wine in the bar before dinner as an option. Also lots of spirits available but no gin which was a shame.
