Really positive experience from making the first enquiry right through to the ride itself.
I found Jinnie really helpful when she answered my initial enquiry email about a ride for myself and 10 year old daughter during our holiday to Lagos. Further emails from her were chatty, informative and prompt and reassured me that QPA is an well run, trustworthy establishment.
As we drove up the lane to the centre I was further reassured as I saw lots of healthy, well groomed horses happily grazing in fields.
We then met Kat who was our trek leader, she was really friendly and spoke excellent English and mounted our horses Maggie and Millie, both beautifully groomed.
We enjoyed a really lovely 2 hour ride through the countryside on very well behaved but willing and capable horses. Kat was constantly checking on our well being and had lots of information about the areas we were riding through. My daughter became a little nervous on one particularly long and open canter as she felt her horse was a little too strong and fast, Kat picked up on this straight way and slowed the pace, reassured my daughter, gave her some little tips and got her cantering again with a little encouragement. Kat is a great trek leader.
We both had a fab time and would love to ride again on a future visit to the area.
My husband (non-rider) whiled away a couple of very pleasant hours by the pool at the centre too!
Highly recommended, have already urged two friends who are going to The Algarve later this year to give it a go.
