Sierra Nevada - Spain

Alpujarra Short Break

5 star rating   29 September 2022

Ebba who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. The weather was impeccable - the horse super good and the terrain as I had imagined - so all in all a trip I would like to recommend to others. The fact that it also was an excellent group does not make the experience any worse!
Consideration was given to the work load on the horses going downhill, and they were given adequate rest when going uphill.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation was impeccable - the composition of the group meant I had my own room.
The food can't be complained about either, there was plenty of good food - and the breakfast was more varied than I had expected, a positive detail.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Overall, the match between horse and rider was perfect, there was clearly a lot of thought behind the composition, and everyone was happy with their horse. Mine fitted to size and definitely fit my own riding abality as well.
No stress and rush - the only times we had to thinking of the time were when we had to leave in the morning and when we had to meet for dinner in the evening.
