Sunset view – horses of Estepona

Well isn’t this an amazing view through the ears of a horse? Sunrise and sunset is incredible at Ranch Siesta Los Rubios. The sun rolls on up over the sea and sets behind the Sierra Bermeja mountains, called the Red Mountains. It’s wonderful to go riding here and this shot sums it all up – […]

Collin down at Ranch Siesta Los Rubios

Both humans and horses get hot. And sometimes that means simply getting yourself drenched in lovely cold water to cool down. Here’s the handsome Harley and his best friend Paula having fun as always at Ranch Siesta Los Rubios. And Jazmin deciding the only way is the bucket treatment. Hardcore!

It’s no […]

Rehabilitating horses – before and now

Playing in the water – horse riding Estepona

Its hot out there and some horses just can’t resist a proper play in the plunge pool in the river! The river dries up mostly in Summer but we know a few secret spots where the water stays longer. After two hours of fantastic mountain trails this was just what the horses needed. Not all […]
