What people are saying about Algarve
It was such an enjoyable ride, i imagine especially for a more experienced rider as you get to canter through the dunes. The views are spectacular and I felt safe and comfortable the whole time! The horses looked well groomed, although I would have wished the horse I rode had more developed back muscles and a few kgs more- I wouldnt have been comfortable had I been around the weight Limit to sit on her back.
Very nice guide who also tells a little bit about the area and horses. Fantastic scenery and the ride is completely adapted to your needs, experiences and wishes. Any time!
