Breathtaking! This past weekend has been one of the most special experiences of our lives. It felt so free, so relaxed and the view was beautiful! Next time we will definitely go for 2 hours. The guide was nice and sweet, they also took us into account when we arrived a little later because it was a bit of a search. Tip: leave well in time. We will definitely come back to experience this again. In addition, they are very good and kind to the horses. And meanwhile they take photos and videos of you and send them later, which is very nice!

Superb horseback riding of about an hour on the beautiful beach of Bordeira, in the middle of the dunes! Very nice experience, well treated horses and friendly guide who takes photos/videos of the ride and sends them to you at the end. Only small downside: it is noted in the description that we are allowed to feed and prepare the horses before the ride, except this is not the case. I think it's a shame not to do it, especially if it's written.
