I absolutely loved my trip! I would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about it. the food was fabulous (what an amazing cook!) I rode my butt off and I lost five pounds!
I was the only person there that week so I had the place all to myself. I loved Segovia! Would love to go back, but as you well know, there are so many trips to go on.. I bragged to my friends and we are already planning a trip.
All in all, Salvador is great! He is very passionate about what he does, and I know it is hard for him to accommodate us wimps (3 ft weenies!) but he did it with grace. I did stadium, cross country and dressage. (I did tell him diapers were unbecoming under breeches so not to over do it with me! LOL)
I love him, love his place, love his horses, and hope the economy and world market will straighten out for all of us! Thanks for a great trip.

Fabulous riding and horses. Did it all – cross country with all the jumps, ditches, corners, banks and in and out of the water pond; high level dressage and show jumping. Great hacks and lovely place. Nil time to rest – eat,ride and sleep is the entire program; and look at videos or pics of the day.
All in all, a fabulous once in a lifetime experience.

The lessons were intense.and Salvador was passionate, professional, knowledgeable and fun. The trail rides were awe inspiring with rides through quaint villages, along rivers, through meadows and past historic castles. Unbelievable!
