My sister and I stayed elsewhere on the island but booked a couple of rides with the Quinta. The first ride was just an introductory ride where we got put with beginner riders but when we came back for our second ride the owner told us they had made a mistake with the first ride so gave us a discount...

We did not stay at the guesthouse (didn't even know there was one) -- came only for the riding. This visit was for my teenage daughter to take a 2-hour ride. When we arrived the staff was ready with the horses, but on seeing her they changed her to a horse they felt would be better for her -- really...

I stayed for a week on a riding holiday. We were made very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. This is a guest house on a riding estate, where you can stay, and ride if you want, or take tours of the beautiful island. As there are not many hotels available, I think this is a perfect, informal and...

Wen't here for a half-day riding tour. I'm a beginner and I felt very well taken care of by all the staff and everything was very well organised. The horse took good care of me as well :) All the horses are rescue horses so they really are doing a good deed as well. Will definitely come back!

We spent an amazing week at the Quinta da Terca. Christina and Claude are a lovely couple who cannot do enough for you. Christina arranged riding and sightseeing for the week. The horses are well cared for and suited for each rider's abilities. The highlight of the week had to be at Sete Cidades where we rode above the volcanic...

Terrific place for a riding holiday, lovely horses, well organised rides with excellent guides, very good interesting food and charming accommodation. When not riding tours of the island are organised for you with a well informed guide. I really cannot fault the Quinta da Terca, I enjoyed a wonderful holiday there and have no hesitation in recommending it.

I really enjoyed staying here. Quiet.. clean.. friendly and the horseback riding trip? AWESOME. LOVE LOVE this place. Can't wait to return. Please do the day trip if you're an experienced horseback rider. They offer lessons with very patient trainers there as well.

Went on a half day tour with Kaisa (at least i think that was her name). Goo horses, nice planned trip. We felt well taken care of. One of the best ridingtours i have had abroad. Highly recomended. I hoe they keep up the good work for years to come, so many more get to join their tours.

“We stayed in room two. It had two comfortable queen/full beds and a private bath. It was perfect for my friend and I. I didn't hear any complaints about any room and my understanding is that they all have private baths which is great!”
