Balkan Rides - Bulgaria

The Devetaki Plateau

4 star rating   9 July 2022

Alison who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. A good riding experience | These are working horses and as such were fit and well cared for with the odd knock here and there. My horse suffered from heat stroke one lunchtime and the crew were on it immediately and soon had everything under control. I was impressed by their efficiency in dealing with the issue - this is about the 14th trip I've done so I've seen it all before and have owned horses for more that 40 years so I accept that different countries have differing standards.
This was a good team and they looked after us well.

Accommodation was of a good standard - long as its clean and basic its always enough at the end of a hard days riding and the addition of a pool was a nice touch
