Beautiful views and an adventure! You can't beat that. We booked through getyourguide, was rescheduled with permission to the next day, no issues with that since we agreed to it. I went with 2 friends, none of us have a lot of experience with horses and I felt like we were appropriately matched with horses at our skill level. (Mine was a bit spunky but it didn't scare me so it was fine, but if my other friend had been on that horse it wouldn't have been so good) Our guide took great pictures and sent the link for them the next day. Overall highly recommend. Just one note, the saddles did not have a saddlehorn. When I have been on horses in the past, the saddles always had one, and as a beginner I have found them helpful for mounting/dismounting and balancing while riding. Maybe it's better for safety, trail riding, or comfort for the horse. I don't know, but I thought I'd mention it since I noticed it.

It was just perfect! Nunú - our guide - led us through a wonderful landscape, along a wonderful beach with a fabulous view of the sea and the surrounding cliffs. The horses were so well trained that they listened to the guide's statements without any problems and are therefore perfect for beginners with no riding experience. We had Joana and Joline as horses and they were just so nice that you immediately felt safe and comfortable. ☺️

What an AMAZING experience! My husband and I have no horse riding experience. Booked a ride because of rave reviews. Exciting, but on arrival we were soon put at ease. What a wonderfully beautiful route, with breathtaking views! WOW! The host was very friendly, took the time for us, radiates passion and took nice pictures in between. Thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!
