I discovered Outside the Corral at the horse expo in Flanders Expo Ghent, and I am thrilled that I came across this agency! The exceptionally beautiful website caught my attention, and I fell in love with the trip in Portugal. Laure-Anne assured me that it's suitable for novice riders and solo travelers, providing the reassurance I needed. Despite encountering various health-related challenges before leaving, Laure-Anne guided, assisted, and supported me every step of the way. I have never experienced such outstanding service and never felt so at ease with someone I didn't know before. The trip itself surpassed all expectations—it was unpredictable and fantastically good! I cherished every moment of it.
Very nice experience! Laure-Anne makes all the time for you, discusses your wishes and then gives options that suit you. As a result, the trip suits the person booking it. But also afterwards, Laure-Anne is easy to reach for questions and thinks along with you. For example, my flight got changed and she immediately thought about how to solve the transfer. Also the personal aspect, with a message before your trip, but also checking in afterwards to see how your trip went. Makes it a nice and personal travel agency. And because she only offers riding holidays and visits them herself, she knows what she is selling. Laure-Anne, thanks again for the service and the fantastic trip I made thanks to you. I will definitely book here more often!
The destination was perfect for my purpose of recharging, relaxing and improving my riding skills. The horses were just beautiful and easy to ride, the food was delicious and the property was absolutely gorgeous. I also had a good time with the other guests, horse lovers who came from all over the world to this place for the famous Portuguese Lusitano horses. I will definitely return to Monte Velho! Laure-Anne read my needs perfectly and advised me exactly which ride to book. Moreover, she was very flexible when I needed to change my schedule and was available for 24/7 for questions. If you are thinking of a riding holiday, this is the place to book!
For a while, I had a dream of going on a riding holiday, and I eventually found my way to Outside the Corral. I was extremely impressed with Laure-Anne's guidance in helping me choose the perfect trip. It was fantastic how quickly I could communicate with her, and she provided me with a wealth of information. In the end, I embarked on an amazing journey to Iceland and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. Laure-Anne had already warned me that once you experience a riding holiday, you become instantly hooked, and she was absolutely right! I'm already eagerly planning my next adventure, and, of course, I'll be using Outside the Corral again.
