Balkan Rides - Bulgaria

The Devetaki Plateau

5 star rating   30 September 2023

Neil who has been on 23 In The Saddle rides. Excellent riding and great hosts | The riding was excellent, lots of long canters and more trot than you often get on a riding holiday.

The horses were all fit and forward-going, but still calm and sensible.

No improvement required, it is very comprehensive.

It would be nice if you would take AMEX, but otherwise nothing required.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

It's a real family operation. The guides (Maria and Monica) were great, and Vasco was excellent as groom, driver, lunch provider, tour guide, host and sommelier.
