“Everything went to plan, and what a great plan it was ”

Written on: 29/11/2016 by Tioramhelen (1 review written)

I'd recommend Far and Ride to anyone looking for a riding holiday. They are very friendly and approachable, they gave us all the information we could possibly need and all their arrangements went smoothly. Our riding holiday was superb and absolutely lived up to what we were promised and more. Now I've found them, don't think I'd consider looking anywhere else for a riding holiday. But lookout Portugal is very hot in September!… Read Full Review

“An excelletnt experience and holiday - thank you!”

Written on: 25/11/2016 by AndreaL13 (1 review written)

Had an excellent holiday with Far and Ride in September; it far exceeded my expectations. From start to (beyond the!) finish, the service and information provided from the team was excellent; it was very detailed, helpful and I felt that there was nothing more they could have added. It made the whole experience very easy. They went above the call of duty advising me on travel plans, and helped me with alternative arrangements. Transfers were smooth, the hotel was even better than described… Read Full Review

“Lusitano ride, Portugal”

Written on: 25/11/2016

Administration was very good, host and staff welcoming and expert. The horse I was allocated was the best I've ever ridden, so well schooled and obedient, yet enthusiastic and willing. I've owned Arabs for years and am now converted to the Portuguese horses. Food was excellent, as was the range of terrain we rode across. Can't praise it highly enough. Weather was unseasonably hot, so the 42 degrees day was a bit of a struggle, so will go a couple of weeks later next year… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/11/2016 by Emily_Canada (1 review written)

Far and Ride went above and beyond in every way. My recent trip to Ireland was everything I dreamed it would be, and I had high expectations. She treated me as an individual from an international Skype call, to the wish list of things I hoped for. I plan to book many more trips through her and would not hesitate to tell all my friends to as well. Couldn't be better!!… Read Full Review

I'd used other agencies before  I found F&R several years ago and can categorically say that these girls are the best of the lot. Nothing is too much trouble from finding the right kind of faster riding i love, to answering my innumerable questions. The choice of riding holidays is huge and they are all personally vetted so I trust the staff's suggestions. The prices are realistic too. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

Fantastic company, I really can't say enough good things about them! So friendly and helpful and leading up to our trip nothing was ever too much trouble. Were really great at accommodating my dad who also came on the trip as a non rider. The information packs they sent out prior to our holiday were brilliant and very useful. Well priced holiday and ourl transfers were easily booked as well. I will book all future riding trips through far and ride and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to… Read Full Review

“El Bronco - amazing riding holiday”

Written on: 14/09/2016 by kkg003 (1 review written)

Far and Ride is a great travel agent to work with. She was much help making sure I was well-prepared and got a great room at the ranch. She was patient with my plethora of questions, and there were no details left out during my stay. I will definitely book with Far and Ride again. For El Bronco, let me start by saying this was the best riding holiday that I've been on. The #1 highlight is the quality of their horses. I'm a Texas western horse person, been riding for 22 years, and I've been… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/09/2016 by johannafontell (1 review written)

I have booked quite a few riding trips with Far and Ride all over the world - and will continue to do so :) The service of the agency is always extremely friendly and helpful, you feel that they take a personal interest in what you want to do - all the way from the first inquiry to the day you return home from the trip. Plenty of information before-hand on the trips to come as well. The trips themselves have been a great adventure, too, and money worth spending. I have loved the horses… Read Full Review

“Far and Ride is the best! ”

Written on: 19/06/2016 by Milton170 (1 review written)

She is very passionate about what she does! and really knows each destinations well. She is genuinely interested in making the best match between a rider and the destination. She clearly loves horses, and people who like horses! Not only did she help me choose the right destination, she also helped me prepare and train well for the trip as my canter skills were really rudimentary at that time. During the trip, I forgot my wallet at one of the stops; a cab had to be hired to retrieve the… Read Full Review

We decided to use Far and Ride and they did a great job helping us to choose our trip. We needed a short riding trip in Portugal and in the end decided to go to La Quinta (Riding in Portugal). Far and Ride always communicated step by step very clear and make life so much easier for us. The place we went was excellent and matched our expectation. The horses are great, the host are friendly and relax, the food was excellent. Nothing is less than perfect. I highly recommended far and ride to my… Read Full Review

Recently my friend and I booked and went for our first riding holiday weekend in Portugal with Far and Ride. We are both experienced riders and were looking for somewhere to go for long hacks. We had a very pleasant experience with Far and Ride. Right from the beginning, our emails and queries are always answered promptly and thoroughly. This was good as before we made our purchase, we did asked a lot of questions regarding the different riding holiday destinations in Portugal (i.e : what are… Read Full Review

“Fantastic holiday”

Written on: 03/05/2016 by Sarahderb (2 reviews written)

Just returned from a short break in Portugal booked through Far and Ride. Had an absolutely fantastic time at Pine Trees Riding Centre. We were thoroughly looked after and enjoyed a very hospitable break here. Even though we only had 2 full days, we fitted loads in, including breakfast, a riding assessment (to see our level of riding and to match us with a suitable horse), lunging, trail ride, trip to tack shop, looked at a Lusitano for sale at a nearby livery yard, lunch, riding lesson, swim… Read Full Review
