Monte Velho - Portugal

Monte Velho

5 star rating   21 February 2024

Rebecca who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Educational and enjoyable in top-class accommodation | I went to Monte Velho with no experience of dressage, although I would have said I was a strong intermediate horse rider for trails and cross country. This was very far outside my comfort zone but the instructors were very patient with me. Fellow guests were also very encouraging, despite all being substantially more experiences. The horses are beautiful.

Accommodation is incredible, with the premium rooms making the most of the incredible surroundings. The food was also delicious and served in a lovely room or on the veranda.
