This trip was amazing. Our guide Nuno was fantastic the horses were very well cared for and ever so friendly, he took us on a beautiful hack across the cliffs and up the sand dunes with opportunities to canter and gallop. A truly memorable experience I just wish I had booked the 2 hour trek. 0

Beautiful views and an adventure! You can't beat that. We booked through getyourguide, was rescheduled with permission to the next day, no issues with that since we agreed to it. I went with 2 friends, none of us have a lot of experience with horses and I felt like we were appropriately matched with horses at our skill level. (Mine was a bit spunky but it didn't scare me so it was fine, but if my other friend had been on that horse it wouldn't have been so good) Our guide took great pictures and sent the link for them the next day. Overall highly recommend. Just one note, the saddles did not have a saddlehorn. When I have been on horses in the past, the saddles always had one, and as a beginner I have found them helpful for mounting/dismounting and balancing while riding. Maybe it's better for safety, trail riding, or comfort for the horse. I don't know, but I thought I'd mention it since I noticed it.

What a great experience! The guide was very friendly and took everything into account. My friend had no experience so the guide walked with him constantly. I could then trot and canter. He also took many photos and videos which he forwards by email. We will definitely do it again.
