Just returned from a magical early morning 1 and a half hour ride from the stables, across the nature reserve and along the flat sandy beach for 35euros. It was the quiet winter season but the day was sunny and the sea flat calm. Jodie was a sensitive leader, friendly and encouraging to an OAP who last rode over 30... More

I found it really lovely, rode through a natural park. I felt the guide genuinely wanted me to have a nice ride. I was a little nervous of cantering and he really helped my confidence. This was without a doubt the best thing I did, in my three weeks in Portugal. I loved it so much going again before I... More

Horse Riding in Vale Parra, Albuferia. Have used this family run stables twice and the horses are well suited to each rider age and capability. Very safety conscious, with good quality hats and body jackets for children. I took my 5 year old girl and she was very safe. Go early morning or evening to get a chance to ride... More

A little difficult to get hold of / book as no one spoke English when we turned up to see, but phoned the owner for us, no reply to email when we made a further enquiry and the... More

This was our second time here. My partner is a novice and he rode Felina, who was nice and quiet. I used to ride a lot and I rode Fidalgo, who was great once he got going, and very well behaved and calm for a 6 year old. Lukas was our guide and he was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional.... More

Any poor reviews about this place are purely about peoples expectations and readiness to ride, the owners were friendly and informative taking the time to walk us round the stables and giving background information about the horses. We had a lovely hack down to the beach and then had the opportunity to gallop along the sand at full belt, the... More
