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.

Totally worth it! Josè is very nice and funny, we had a great time. The views were amazing and the horses really sweet, so it’s perfect for people who have never ridden a horse.

2nd time in two days! My girls loved it again. Even with a couple of different horses. Still top experience for all. Loved the rides, the conversation, and the friendship. Super time!! Thanks

Jose and his wife were absolutely super hosts and great new friends! Wonderful experience for two kids that had never sat a horse before. Made them comfortable and calm. A super time. Going again before we leave!!

José’s experience was absolutely wonderful - he and his team are genuinely great people and the horses are obviously so happy and well taken care of. I was a really nervous rider and José and his partner were super considerate and took great care of us. The views were spectacular along the ride and it was a beautiful way to spend the morning.

This was truly a great experience! José and his wife, who are amazing people, took me and my girlfriend on an beautiful tour along the coast. The horses are easy going and easy to ride, even for me who had never been on a horse before. You can see that the horses are absolutely well taken care off and loved. All in all I would recommend this experience 10/10. You will not regret booking with José.
