Adult riding classes

We have quite a few adult riding classes during the week and weekend for all different levels of rider. If you would like to join one please ask. Every lesson is different every time. During the adult riding classes you will learn basic skills, do pole work, some jumping and bounce lessons if the group […]

Beach and bar ride

Our experienced riders and horse owners went off for a beach and bar ride this week. For some of the horses it was their first or second time on the beach, which is always fun. The sea isn’t tidal here so it is usually in the same place, but it can be noisy on the […]

Who owns this bird?

Look what flew into the Ranch today. Who owns this bird? She must be lost from someone who has spent a lot of time with her (or him!). Very friendly, easy to handle and spent most of the day fluttering from one hand and shoulder or head to another. It flew down to the pista […]

APRONA disabilities group visits the Ranch

We were absolutely delighted to welcome to the Ranch a very special group from Estepona, visiting us from Aprona. All these wonderful people have differing learning and physical impairments but all came with a lot of giggles, enthusiasm and smiles. They certainly got stuck into the fun things at the Ranch and they all wanted […]

Jumping lessons in Estepona

We are pleased to welcome back one of our super talented young riders, Bobbi, with her fast jumping horse Kiko. If you are wanting to know how much you can progress with jumping lessons in Estepona, then this partnership really can show you. Both mum and daughter train and ride on this horse and he’s […]

Mountain hacks in Estepona

It is so beautiful in the early Spring and we absolutely love the mountain hacks in Estepona, riding up through the rivers. The views are spectacular, the wildflower carpets are flourishing and it’s just green everywhere. The air is fresh but warm. And we have taken a lot of people up on the mountain trails […]

Riding lessons for children

Great group riding lessons for children this weekend, again, demonstrating some fantastic skills when riding without stirrups. This is something that takes time to master but is vitally important for balance, lengthening the legs and sitting properly in the saddle. And also developing confidence. In the end all this hard work and practice without stirrups […]

Pairs riding

Today was a little bit different during the lessons at the Ranch. Our young riders had to demonstrate that they could adjust stride and pace in pairs riding. Getting around corners and through arches where every horse has to change pace and stretch or reduce stride length to stay riding together. It’s hard. And for […]

Spring blossom

After the rainy days recently, the land starts to say thank you. We have some rather beautiful Spring blossom up in the mountains. The grass is luscious and green, there are flowers appearing and the tree blossom is just stunning. We stop at the viewpoint on our mountain horse rides to admire the view, and […]

The Beatles arrive

This weekend saw the arrival of our new Fab Four horses – we nicknamed them the Beatles – and so we called them John, Paul, Ringo and George. Their names suit them perfectly! These four boys have been together for a long time and they are super relaxed as a little group. We visited them […]
