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!

John Paul Ringo & George arrive

These four boys have been together for a long time and they are super relaxed as a little group. We visited them at their previous home where the owner was injured and could not look after them/ride them so well any more. So we have given them a new home here at Ranch Siesta Los Rubios.

The Beatles are just getting to know their new surroundings – and us them – and this was their first time into the school this weekend. We plan that as they are so quiet and calm, and like being together,  they’ll soon be helping beginner riders on Saddle Ups and lessons.

Although a few of them might have some other additional talents we think… John is a big lad and with a little muscle is going to be handsome lad. Ringo is very eager and the youngest and so who knows, he might fancy jumping? PS He is also super handsome!

So watch this space for more of the Beatles news!

New arrival at the Ranch – meet Nacho

We had a new arrival this week – the crazy handsome Nacho. He is not only a beautiful looking boy (the mares here agree) he’s also super kind and has a wonderful personality.

Jan his human is very happy and we are happy to welcome them both to Ranch Siesta Los Rubios for some fun riding times together hacking out in this lovely area.

Mum and daughter horse riding – vaulting time!

Viola wasn’t very keen on horses despite her mum Kat being a riding instructor and having her lovely horse Hermosa here at Ranch Siesta Los Rubios.

But our Vaulting lessons have changed her mind!

What a wonderful activity to do together – mum and daughter horse riding with a twist!! Looks scary up there but vaulting is always taught in a safe environment on calm horses and it’s really fun. You can join us on Mondays for our Vaulting Club or if you fancy giving it a go yourself or with some friends (riding experience is not necessary) then come and join in.

Vaulting Club NEW for kids this summer

The Summer holidays are almost here and we are launching our new Vaulting Club for kids. All levels are welcome.

Vaulting may be one of the most unique sports in existence, as it includes both dance and gymnastic movements … performed on a moving horse.

And you dont need to know how to ride in order to start vaulting. Anyone can learn.

It’s a fabulous and fun way to develop balance, strength, coordination and creativity, as well as trust and teamwork.

Unlike trick riding, vaulting is always performed in a controlled environment that includes a fully enclosed arena and soft footing. The horse, controlled by a trainer through a long rope called a lunge line, moves in a large, consistent circle while the vaulter performs a series of gymnastics and dance moves.

Come and join in our Vaulting Club at Ranch Siesta Los Rubios! Every Monday through the Summer. Book 4 weeks at a time. 20 euros per session.
