I recently took advantage of the livery service here and what a good choice it was. Sarah and her team are very warm and welcoming. Sarah changed some pieces of his bridle, suggested a thicker pad under his saddle to make him more comfortable. We had a lesson to make sure we did know what we are doing and then... More

Found Albufeira Riding Center after an awful experience at another local riding school. From the off these guys are absolutely amazing. My phone wasnt working abroad so had to message via facebook initially. The communication was excellent. My daughter is visually impaired. She has extremely limited vision and although she rides regularly in a school in the UK she was... More

I booked this 2 hour experienced ride through the countryside for myself and my daughter Evie and we were not disappointed!! The horses were lean and muscular and were VERY responsive, not like some schools in the U.K. where they can switch off. Sarah ( from Bristol) was really good with a wealth of information on the surrounding areas and... More

An amazing experience, would definitely recommend for families and couples! We did an hour session and got to trot in that session a few times too, in a lovely country side area with beautiful views. We absolutely loved it!

Easy going instructor and horses, suitable for beginners and experienced riders. We enjoyed the one hour tour and helping with the horses afterwards (a nice extra, but no obligation! ). The instructor gave information about the area and we had a nice chat with her. We would definitely go again in the future!
