Enough with the beaches already! The Algarve coast is dotted with numerous sandy beauties, and the Albufeira Riding Centre, or Vale Navio, is the perfect place to come to, to take a breather away from shore. The owner, Georgie, is British and has a qualification from the British Horse Society and also has Portuguese qualifications in tourism riding and has competed in England and Portugal both. With 17 years of experience in horse-riding under her belt, rest assured that you are in safe hands.
The premises are beautiful and lush with stables and paddocks, and the service is extremely warm and friendly. The trainers will be happy to give you extra information about the premises, and even beginners need not worry as your safety and comfort is their priority.
The horses are muscular and healthy, clearly well-trained and taken care of with great love. There are about 16 horses and ponies wandering around the five-acre area of paddocks and all of them have a name, which makes the whole experience very friendly and enjoyable affair. The trainers will accompany you as you trot through the countryside.
This is a great visit for everyone, whether you’re travelling in a group or alone.
