What you'll do

Me and my wife are the only ones in Algarve taking the horses directly to the place of the hack instead of just riding around the riding school.The hack we provide in this experience takes place through the woods and along the coastline of João Darens, called by many "the last green spot where the woods kiss the ocean". Two easy steps to enjoy this experience : we will send you the coordenates when you book the experience and we will meet you there with the horses, ready to go!

My name is José, I'm co-founder of GM Equestrian, I provide every type of equestrian services and training, from hacks with begginers to high level competition. Horses have always been part of my life. I have been working with horses for 27 years and my wife Cátia joined me 4 years ago, together we are part of three different riding centers in the Algarve and decided to start a project to show our guests how Portugal looks like from the back of a horse and how free and happy they can make you feel. They are extraordinary animals and so easy to love.

What an excellent way to spend a morning in the Algarve. Jose and his team were amazing in catering for my husband who was a beginner and he said that the way Jose handled everything made all the difference in making him feel comfortable. The views were gorgeous and the horses were extremely well-behaved. Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful sunset ride. Jose fitted us in specially after i messaged him on the off chance (as the time we wanted to do wasn't originally available to book ). The horses were lovely and the ride was through the pinewoods to the cliffs overlooking a couple of bays. We chatted the whole way round with the lady (sorry i've just forgotten her name) which made it feel so personal. A fab end to a beautiful day. So glad i messaged Jose ,Thank you Jose.
