Ride on Faial, the blue Azorean island

Elizabeth, 58 years old - Marblehead

I just came back from a fabulous week on Faial Island in the Azores and 6 days of horseback trail riding. Indeed, I will book another trip with Equuus Journeys. For my first horse riding adventure/holiday, I had no idea what to expect. On this trip, we rode about 25 km a day, a total of 150 km around this beautiful island in the middle of the North Atlantic. The Patio Horse Lodge was perfect. They met my requests for vegetarian meals and were available for what ever we needed. Victor and Anja run a wonderful B&B/horse farm. What a beautiful spot to call home for a week. Every morning I looked out over the paddock to the cows grazing in the fields, overlooking the Atlantic ocean. The riding was spectacular, cantering alongside the ocean, through the open fields, up to the highest points of the island and then down again, cantering through the deep Azorean sand, alongside the old lighthouse. It was magical. Our guide, Diogo, was wonderful! The views were stunning.
