Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lino took us on a tour. 3 people on the gig, one child on a horse. It was a beautiful trip down to Marsalforn. We enjoyed the excursion a lot, the horses are wonderful, well kept and very calm and safe. Lino and his wife love their horses and look after them kindly.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Run by two of the kindest and friendliest locals experienced throughout the trip. It is clear to see that the animals’ welfare is a priority to both Lino and his wife, with both horses used during the tour looking incredibly loved and cared for, frequent stops were made throughout the tour to give the horses a rest as well as an opportunity to feed. Lino is incredibly experienced and knowledgeable about his animals, wanting to help share and educate riders throughout the tour. Both the pony cart and horse riding were an incredible experience, giving a new and unique perspective to the island.

We are a French family of four and we had a fantastic time with Lino and his horses! We ride and also had the carriage and both were really fun! Warmly recommended, thanks so much Lino!

Lino was an amazing host, we got to meet his wife and learn a lot about the family and heritage of the horses. We had the opportunity to ride Whisky and sit on a carriage with Blue Lady. The experience was amazing lasted around 2 hours and got to see the amazing valley in Gozo. Lino did an amazing job of building my confidence riding the horses, and even got to see the animals owned by the family. I would highly recommend visiting if you’re planning to stay in either Gozo or Malta.

My sister and I (two ladies in our 40’s) really enjoyed a 2 hour ride through the village and countryside on horses with our darling host Lino. Cyndi who is an experienced rode Whiskey on an English saddle and I joined Lino in the sulky puled by Lady Blue. It felt magical! We picked and chewed on fennel from the trees we passed and enjoyed the spectacular views. Cost was very reasonable at 20 E each per hour. Lino is a lovely gentleman who has a special relationship with animals. He also treated us to a visit of the stables and to meet his purebread Pharaoh hounds. Lino isn’t much for new communication technology though his family assists with WhatsApp. You can call him. See contact coordinates in photos.

If you want a real human-level connection, someone who does pay attention to how you ride and to your needs and who is genuinely interested in giving you a positive experience, this is by far the best choice in Gozo! Lino is an amazing person, he is patient, explains everything and makes a first-time ride feel very natural and simple! The horses are really calm and obedient (not by fear as elsewhere) and the experience feels just perfect. Everyone doing horse riding in Gozo seems to claim they don't do it for the money and it's just a hobby but one can definitely tell the difference between Lino and the others (if you try multiple, like in my case). Totally recommended!

Riding at Lino Stables was 100% the highlight of our trip to Malta and we definitely plan on returning in the future. We were greeted by Lino, who could not have been more lovely, and taken on a tour of Gozo on horseback and by carriage. It was my partners first time riding and I think this trip did the trick in convincing him to come riding more often with me. A spectacular place, brilliant people, lovely (and very loved) horses and the perfect end to our holiday.

We were met by Lino in his stable and received a warm welcome.
Lino introduced us to the horse that we were riding which was called Whiskey. We were reassured of our safety and well-being during Covid and were made to feel comfortable throughout our entire experience.
Despite being beginners, Lino made us feel extremely comfortable due to his many year of experience with horses.
You will be in very safe hands if you use Linos service!
