I can throughly recommend the beach ride - the only one I did. It takes you through varied vegetation, then onto a wonderful cliff top and beach. The horse was well looked after and clearly knew what she was doing; while not having any surpises she gave me an exhilerating ride! I was equally well looked after by the guide... More

My boyfriend and I took a trip in May and it was an unforgettable experience, 10/10 would recommend!! We rode 2 hours through the countryside to the beach and watched the sunset while eating a picnic dinner provided by our wonderful guide. Then rode back 2 hours. We were definitely worn out by the end of our 5 hour excursion... More

I went for a one day beach ride, it was just the guide and me and it was an amazing experience! I already have quite some experience and also did beach rides at other places, but this ride really was something special. Our tour went along forests with pine and eucalyptus trees, the cliff coast, the beach, old portuguese villages... More

The beach ride was an absolutely incredible experience -- breathtaking scenery, fascinating info from the guide about life in the countryside, eucalyptus and cork trees, lunch in the dunes, exhilarating gallops on the beach ... pure bliss. I used to ride a lot but haven't been able to go in years, so to have such an incredible ride in Portugal... More

Great ride on responsive horses. We are somewhat experienced riders so it was nice that the horses really responded and didn't just trod after the guide. Also the scenery was really great.

Despite having never ridden horses, we rocked up to Horses in the Sun and had a lovely one hour ride. We left with a real understanding of how the horses respond to riders and really enjoyed our little trek through the beautiful countryside. I wished we had booked for longer and would return in a heart beat. We emailed on... More

My 12 year old daughter and I turned up early, as we were a little unsure of the exact location so set out early. We did miss the turnoff the first time, as the sign is small, but we noticed relatively quickly and turned around and went past the amazing wind turbines to a great day. We were greeted at... More

We can't drive horses by ourselves so we chose a 2 hour tour by carriage tour and a bbq dinner. This was really the most beautiful day of our holiday! And we have did a lot, a buggytour, segwaytour, jipesafari tour.... All of it was really great, but this day we will remember as the most beautiful day with a... More
