    What our guests say

    t1

    “In a word it was AMAZING!! Thanks so much for all the info and organisation. There were SO many highlights: the beautiful scenery which changed every day, the snow -capped mountains in the background, eagles soaring overhead, lively forward-going horses, Maria Elena’s warm welcome and passion for her horses and the Gredos, and her amazing support team who always went the extra mile and the amazing catering arrangements - being served a four-course meal under canvas on a mountain plateau in a hailstorm was extraordinary! Oh and seeing all the horses roll in the meadow at the end of a long ride and on another occasion drinking G&T (Spanish measures) while watching our horses graze over the fence.”

    "I have to say I had a great time on my holiday! I really enjoyed it and was bowled over by the Gredos Mountains and the riding, couldn't have asked for better. It is a perfect place to ride, with wooded valleys and then the high hills with fantastic views….lovely wildflowers and broom to ride through. Maria Elena was such a great hostess, fun and full of energy and so interesting and friendly. She looked after us superbly in all respects…The horses were beautifully looked after and cherished and obviously cared for greatly which for me made the ride as you felt they enjoyed is as much as we did. The wild flowers were superb just as you predicted!”

    “ Just to say that Marie Elena's Gredos ride was by far the best one we have been on, except for Patagonia, and actually riding in the mountains with a 360 degree vista and no sign of civilization was very similar to the Andes when we were out in the open and not deep in the vegetation on the old trials. I loved the beautiful and varied scenery, and the opportunity to observe village life and traditions.

    “We rode up and down mountains, across plains, through little villages and stayed in lovely places, my favourite being the second place where the horses were outside our rooms! We swam in clear mountain lakes and pools, ate at white clothed tables with beautiful food during the day with more food at night! (Which is why I’ve probably put on weight even after all the riding!) There was even a festival for 2 nights in one village which we enjoyed dancing to Spanish music and meeting the locals! All in all a wonderful holiday which I would thoroughly recommend.”

    “It was wonderful from start to finish and as much as we were all looking forward to it, the whole thing completely exceeded our expectations. I loved discovering the Gredos Mountains - what a beautiful and varied area, spectacular scenery and we had a week of uninterrupted sunshine which is very lucky in October I gather.”

    “We had the best possible time in the Gredos mountains and you were absolutely brilliant. We are now hooked on riding holidays! I have hardly ever been on such a beautifully organized holiday, everything worked absolutely seamlessly, but I know that when something seems so effortless there is a fantastic lot of work going on behind the scenes! You really do run a remarkable outfit. Hopefully one day we will be back.”

    “This is just to say thank you so much for a brilliant week: The horses were magnificent. All your organisation: of the routes, the accommodation, the lunches, the aperitifs and the swims was outstanding. Above all you and your team were charming, caring and most hospitable. We couldn't have enjoyed our time with you more, and are already working out how soon we can come back for more. I can see just how much work you all put into arranging the trips - the result is a great success. Thank you so much for everything.”
