Andalucia & horses

The best possible combination for a riding holiday – you’ll fall in love with both.

Whatever your level of riding, we tailor all riding for each individual.

Enjoy hacking in the beautiful Sierra Bermeja national park – mountains, forests, villages, rivers and stunning sea views from every stop point. Different groups will ride at different speeds and distances.

You’ll also have riding/dressage or jumping lessons.  These will cover basic skills for beginners and are tailored to everyone’s level.

On your time off, we are just minutes from the beach.

Or a short drive to Estepona,  a traditional Spanish beachside town with old town, Blue Flag beach and dozens of places to eat & relax. Or 10 minutes drive to Marbella for the glamour, shopping & nightlife.

Don’t worry if you’re on your own. You’ll meet great people. We have singles, couples, groups and friends who come on our riding holidays. All leave with huge smiles and memories to last a lifetime.

I was really impressed at how clean and organised this stable is. The horses all looked really happy…The access to trails is awesome and you will never tire of the options of places to explore. The owners are really welcoming and friendly.
