Monte Velho - Portugal

Monte Velho

5 star rating   12 May 2022

Sarah who has been on 5 In The Saddle rides. Monte Velho - third time back & still as great as the first | The horses are all very well schooled at Monte Velho, with superb manners. The instructors are clear & precise with their teaching & also spend time with you until you get things right.
Lovely to see some riders experiencing flying changes, piaffe & passage for the first time, their big smiles said it all.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Stayed in the standard room for the first time & in fact I preferred it to the premium rooms I have stayed in before. The views over the mares field were lovely, I could sit & watch the mares & foals while drinking my cup of coffee on my balcony first thing in the mornings. The rooms were clean, tidy & of a high standard. The fact we had a nightingale singing out side the rooms each night was just the icing on the cake, beautiful.

As above. All great & I really like that I can pay amounts off my holiday each month in advance.
