Description

Make your way to a horse farm in Livramento village in the surroundings of Ponta Delgada to meet your experienced guide and your horse, which will be already saddled for you.

Start riding and immediately enter the typical Azorean countryside, with narrow roads surrounded by old stone walls, green pastures, dairy cows and flowers. Riding pace will be adapted to your experience, but even first-timers can try some trot if they feel comfortable.

Some sections of the itinerary are narrow trails immersed in such dense vegetation that your horse will be moving the bushes to the sides as you pass, making you feel like you're riding in the jungle.

The farm is very dedicated to the rescue of abandoned and mistreated animals, therefore by booking this tour you are supporting this amazing cause!
