Great time horse riding in Portugal with Equestrian Escapes

Fantastic mix of really exciting hacking, including through the local town with a splash in the river, with in depth and informative lessons delivered by the owner who has more than 30 years of experience and always seemed to push us to just exactly the right level.
The horses are beautifully presented and very well mannered. They have buttons to push that I did not know existed. Their lateral work was to die for, if we applied the correct aids, the horses instantly responded.
The owner personally takes you out for the lunches and more impressively to dinner every night as some wonderful places. We have had the best fun trying out his recommended Portuguese dishes.
We have already booked to return which is very unusual for us.

Spent a week riding Lusitano horses under the instruction of Antonio. Well trained horses with expert guidance from our instructor. Improved our riding skills greatly.
The accommodation was excellent and Antonio took us to great dining places each, including at a medieval festival nearby.
We have already booked to go back again in 3 months time.

My daughter , grand daughter and I gravelled on Easter Saturday to Portugal for a 5 day riding holiday, I was a non rider.
We were met at the airport and taken to lunch with another couple who were also on holiday.
Every day the girls had 2 hours riding and an hour lesson in the afternoon.
Every lunch and evening we were taken out to a local restaurant for lunch.
Mostly a different restaurant every day.
Antonio's wife mostly accompanied him , so it was like a family outing.
The local village had a festival on and we enjoyed the music and the stalls, with fireworks on the Monday.This helped to make it special

The place were dreams are made

Myself and a friend booked our holiday through equestrian escapes and we really have had the time of our lives, the horses couldn't be better cared for and was very happy in their work. Our host in Portugal was the owner of the riding centre and he really couldn't do enough for us. He was very knowledgeable in all areas of riding, he gave us some interesting techniques to use at home with our own horses. Sarah and Lindsey at equestrian escapes were extremely helpful making our whole holiday run very smoothly and successful. We are with out a doubt retuning next year. If your thinking of going on a horse riding holiday equestrian escapes are amazing. Thank you so much for an amazing adventure
