Quinta do Rol - Portugal

Quinta do Rol

5 star rating   21 October 2023

Graham who has been on 9 In The Saddle rides. A really great holiday | I arrived quite late due to delays but the owner was there to greet me and a dinner was also waiting for me.
The horses are lovely and instruction is really good, I liked the one to one as I'm used to that at home.
I have learnt a lot. The horses are well trained and consequently have more "Buttons" to press.
I found my leg position had to be more precise to get the correct movements, which was good to know and take home with me.
I rode one lesson through storm Babet in the huge covered outdoor school & although the rain was monsoon we stayed dry, the horse was totally unfazed by the wind and rain.
I rode five horses & loved them all each one a little different. The horses are well looked after and tack is very good . Each instructor brought something new to the lessons.
My fellow guest were all friendly & I enjoyed watching & talking about our lessons with them.
I had a lovely time and would definitely recommend Quinta do Rol.

I think of the three places I have been too in Portugal I would pick Quinta for the riding arena's
and instruction. That huge covered outdoor arena is a bonus rain or shine.
