A luxurious mini break. Review by Cara
Overall Holiday Experience
Horses and tack
Accommodation and food
The horses were all beautiful and well schooled. They are sensitive horses so perhaps not suitable for a nervous novice. The accommodation and surrounding scenery were simply stunning.
I felt very spoilt in my wonderful room. I loved how private it was also.
It was wonderful to be able to make use of the hot tub and sauna at the end of the day.

Overall, a luxurious holiday with beautiful horses. (Posted on 15/12/2017)
Absolutely Amazing Horsie Holiday! Review by Kat

My Riding experience in Monte Velho was super, the horses were amazing although all were individuals and fabulously trained to different levels, every one of them was able to teach me a lot. The other reason why my riding experience was so super were the trainers. They all are amazing and able to structure the lessons in a way that it suits the horse and the rider so that both can take the most out of it. The trainers are all super riders, are really knowledgable, are great horsie people and are amazing at teaching and sharing their knowledge and experiences with riders. I took home so much from the lessons and I feel I improved a lot. I wish I could have a lesson there every day :). I definately will be back :) (Posted on 29/03/2017)

The trail rides were a little slow and tame, but a delightful week of dressage in the serene surroundings of Montel Velho.

The lessons were really great, the quality of the instruction was fantastic. The instructors genuinely wanted you to improve, they were strict, but kind and encouraging, I really enjoyed it! The trail rides were great as well tho the pace was dependent on the abilities of your companions! The countryside was beautiful and the trail horses were great fun to ride. (Posted on 14/03/2017)

Accommodation and food
We moved from the premium room to the standard room, where the air con heating made the room quite damp so we were slightly cold (it was hail stoning when we were there!). The premium room is definitely worth the extra money in my eyes. (Posted on 14/03/2017)
