Clear blue skies, sunshine, miles of beautiful meadows filled with a blanket of colorful wild flowers, excellent horses, food and company! The highlight was my horse taking himself for a swim! A huge thank to Miguel, Wenda and everyone else for looking after us so well. PS. This should be called a Gourmet Food Riding Holiday!!!

I had dreamed since long to ride a Lusitanian horse in Alentejo. This is now done. I appreciated to get close to Alentejo “heart” thanks to the accommodation in genuine homes! The visit of the Coudelaria is a great moment also, despite the “crisis” that seems to reach also the wonderful Alter Real horses breeding.

The Raides Vicentinos organization was exceptional with excellent horses, accommodations and food. Great effort was made to ensure we enjoyed local festivals and events, which added greatly to the overall experience. And, as a seasoned rider I was extremely happy with the pace as we rode through the beautiful countryside and villages.

An extraordinary holiday that exceeded my expectations. Soft, rolling Portuguese landscapes, the fragrance of Eucalyptus groves, the rhythmic beat of horses’ hooves cantering along sandy trails beneath a sundrenched sky – all provided the backdrop for a truly unique riding experience.
Monika Huber – Switzerland
