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!

What's included

  • Equipment
    We provide riding hats for guests safety.

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 25 years and my wife Cátia joined me 3 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.

All in one a great experience ! The trail was challenging but in a good way ! There were some up and down hills which the horses perfectly walked through ! I felt very safe on the horse. You could tell that they were trained and taken care of well. Jose was at the location on time and was very welcoming and nice. The views were great too! Would definitely go back
