Los Alamos - Spain

Villa Based Ride

5 star rating   2 October 2022

Sarah who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Outstanding. | Horses were superbly looked after. Rachel had great insight and diplomacy, with all the riders. Unusually we were allowed to gallop on the beach day 1. (We only found out after they normally assess you first but seemed happy w us after we said we hunted regularly). There was not a single horse that misbehaved or put a foot out of line at any point in the week. Fantastic ratio of horses to riders to ensure adequate rest time between work. They all knew their job and are a great testament to Rachels investment into training over a long period. They were all well shod, sound and a delight to ride. I was given three greys through the week.

Andrews generosity was refreshing. We were welcomed into an extension of his home from the first minute we arrived. Paul made all the socialising really fun. He is very bright, processes information fast and spending time in his company is most enjoyable.

The only negative (and its a tiny one) during the whole week was Pauls driving back from the airport. He was too fast round corners and we threw us around.. both of us felt unbelievably travel sick. Something that neither of us have experienced in years. Paul was completely unaware of his driving but did say that a few of his previous passengers had commented similarly. Andrew drove the remainder of the week and was excellent.
