Myself and a friend went on a 4 hour trial ride with Victor and both were blown away by the scenery. We saw 360 views of the mountains and could even spot some snow on mountains off yonder. The horses were happy, very well trained...More

And what can i say after this? We do not deserve such a review. Thanks a lot. The views are nice, and the horses are good. Vermouth and small things are nothing. Thanks a lot again. A big kiss from Spain!

This was my first time on a horse, whilst the rest of the family were experienced riders. Victor skilfully picked out the right horse for each of us. His style of guiding was humours, insightful and modest. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time. The views...More
