Balkan Rides - Bulgaria

The Devetaki Plateau

4 star rating   17 September 2022

Berit who has been on 14 In The Saddle rides. Good | My horse had problems with the bridle, nodding his head constantly. On the last day the guide admitted that they needed to try with another bridle for him. Would have been nice if this was dealt with earlier.

In general , the Riding was great! Well aligned group of horses and felt safe all the time. Many long canters but always controlled.

The guide and the hosting family (with all services, lunches, dealing with horses etc) was great! Perfect english knowledge and did their best to please our needs:)

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Terrible start on the first place, where we were not expected and some of the rooms where not cleaned, and messy common area, also in the morning. Very satisfied on the hotels!

Poor english by personnell in accomodations and little sense of time. Breakfast at 8 o'clock did not happen even if this was announced /requested the evening before.
[In The Saddle replies: Thank you for your honest feedback and we will certainly follow this up with the ride operator.]
