Lorenzo & Mareike provided a great day for us. My teenage daughter is a much more experienced rider than me, and the ride catered very well to us both. We did the mountain ride and we enjoyed it immensely. Thanks!

While some were much better than others, many of the horses didn't look in great shape and were visibly tired after walking around for an hour. Much like another review I see here from 2013, I wanted to walk away as soon as I arrived but I was with a group. I wish I'd taken photos but left my phone in the car. None of the horses I saw look as healthy as the ones in the photos on here.

I am in my late 70s & though a very competent rider until I was 14, have not been on horseback since.

My granddaughter is 6 & takes riding lessons. She had never ridden unaccompanied prior to this.

We found Lorenzo very affable as was his wife & other employees.

We, with others took a trail ride through the nearby roads & lanes for 90 minutes.

We were encouraged to interact/bond with the horses prior to the.ride by grooming them.

I found Lorenzo very solicitous of my age & her youth & waited patiently for us to catch up.

Both my granddaughter & I enjoyed the experience & she is anxious to return before her holiday ends.

Highly recommended!

Had a lovely time. Booked in advance, easy to find from Alcudia. Arrived, given a lead rope and invited to help bring the horse in and tack up if I wanted. Then had a lovely ride and the guides were able to separate riders from non riders so that everyone was safe based on their riding ability. Would love to go back to try the trail riding.

We booked the standard ride online and Lorenzo came to meet us at the location at 17:00. A man of few words as some other reviewer puts it, but in a very good way! I think some of the other reviews seem very unfair and maybe written by people with weird expectations. Or perhaps they should rather have gone to the more American style fake "beach ride" some other place on the island.

Our guide seems to care most about the horses and safety than to be a noisy entertainer, but the does so also with a great sense of humour and a calming mood. He chose horses according our different skill level and made sure we got to "know them" a bit before the ride. The ride was really nice through fields of the "real" Mallorca. The horses behaved well and it was easy for me as a newbie to steer and trot. Afterwords we were treated with free mosquito spray which we of course had forgotten to bring ourselves, Lorenzo helped us with photos etc and it was a really great experience!

I was planning a two day mountain track with my friend but unfortunatly I fell ill and could only do one day.
It was amazing. Mareike is the kindest and most expereinced guide who made me feel save and relaxed all the way.
The track through the villages, pass farmlands and through the mountains to Lluc was amazing with stunning views.
The horses are well trained and gentle and event though its a pretty though road up the mountain they where super relaxed all the way.
I absolutely loved it, what a beautiful experience.
Thank you Lorenzo and Mareike. We wish you the best of luck with everthing.

We have just returned from the three day mountain trail in the Tramuntana Mountains and for us it was the experience of a lifetime. Lorenzo's advice that we trust the intelligence and experience of his horses, was key to the success and enjoyment of the trek. Some of the riding was challenging, always through the most beautiful countryside and with great company. The food provided during the trip was delicious and plentiful and Lorenzo put considerable thought into including authentic Mallorcan dishes. Lorenzo and Mareike always gave good advice and inspired confidence.
By the way, one of us is a reasonably experienced rider and the other a novice but we both enjoyed it equally. We were very sad to say goodbye to our beautiful horses and great riding companions. We wouldn't hesitate to do this again if we have the opportunity. The daily routine of brushing, checking hooves and saddling up without hurry, added to our personal enjoyment and relationship with our own horses. Thank you Lorenzo and Mareike.

I only just returned from thrilling, 3 days mountain trail Sa Pobla - Lluc - Polenca and I loved it! We were galloping through the farms, climbing the mountains, swimming in the river, sleeping in beautiful monastyr in Lluc, enjoying traditional Mallorca food and wine in local restaurants. Lorenzo and Maraike had a good control of the group, they looked after very well especially after me - the least experienced from the group which I am very great full for, but they also paid enough attention to other members. Horses are lovely, place is beautiful, atmosphere relaxed. Highly recommend, just bare in mind the trail is quite tiring and difficult! ;-)
Will definitely come back to Hipica Formentor!

We have been riding for a week, each day another route experiencing the surroundings of Sa Pobla... Had very different riding levels but would not really feel the difference. Every ride was an adventure. Our top ride was the beach ride at Can Picafort, starting at 5 into the sunset, having dinner together and in the shine of full moon back... Thank you for the wonderful days and the pleasant hosting...

My second year visiting Hipica Formentor and I was not disappointed. Great riding on wonderful horses.
Lorenzo caters for people of all abilities assuring that experienced riders get some good canters while less experienced or non riders can still have a nice experience.
I note that some reviewers mention Lorenzo's lack of communication and whilst I can't disagree that he is not the most outgoing and communicative person he knows his horses and if you speak to him and ask his advice or opinion he will always be helpful.
