What you'll do

Me and my wife are the only ones in Algarve taking the horses directly to the place of the hack instead of just riding around the riding school.The hack we provide in this experience takes place through the woods and along the coastline of João Darens, called by many "the last green spot where the woods kiss the ocean". Two easy steps to enjoy this experience : we will send you the coordenates when you book the experience and we will meet you there with the horses, ready to go!
Other things to note
I am a horse lover therefore I have a animal friendly policy, our horses only work two hours a day five days a week and my guests must be under 80kg.

My name is José, I'm co-founder of GM Equestrian, I provide every type of equestrian services and training, from hacks with begginers to high level competition. Horses have always been part of my life. I have been working with horses for 27 years and my wife Cátia joined me 4 years ago, together we are part of three different riding centers in the Algarve and decided to start a project to show our guests how Portugal looks like from the back of a horse and how free and happy they can make you feel. They are extraordinary animals and so easy to love.

José and his wife were wonderful. They only take small groups and make it very personable. We really enjoyed our experience with the horses. I would highly recommend!

José e le due ragazze che erano con lui, "ad assisterci", sono stati carinissimi e cordiali, ci hanno fatto fare un bel giro in sicurezza con i cavalli in mezzo alla natura. Unico aspetto che non mi è piaciuto, è statoun po' noioso... non ti fanno andare da sola con il cavallo, ti tengono sempre le redini. Loro ti seguono a piedi e non sono a cavallo come gli ospti e quindi il giro risulta molto lento e piatto. Io avevo già fatto altre esperienze simili a cavallo e gli istruttori erano sempre a cavallo con noi partecipanti, rendendo l'esperienza più divertente!

My gf and I did this activity and had a great time. Jose and the staff were a great help and made us feel safe, even though it was a few peoples first time on a horse. Great location with wonderful views of the coast.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed this experience to the fullest! José and his team are super kind and warm people who immediately make you feel comfortable and welcome. The horses all looked healthy and happy and were very sensitive and fine to ride. The ride itself was at a walk accompanied by two guides on foot. They were able to give very good tips to my boyfriend as a riding beginner and told us a lot about the horses and their background. It was very scenic and the good conversations made the ride even more enjoyable! All in all a very nice experience with great horses and people! Thanks for everything :)
