Caroline & team

Sorry, we love dogs but no outside dogs allowed at the Ranch for safety reasons.



The best day of our trip! Took my 9 year old daughter and a friend (both riders) on a mountain hack! Cantering in those surroundings was amazing. Highly recommended for any level rider and family. Caroline is also super.

Probably the best hours of our holiday. Got a family with kids 15, 9 and 7 with a broad range of horse riding skills. Within 10 mins all 5 of us were sat on perfectly selected horses and were riding solo in the sand school able to steer, start and stop with ease…. went off on a gorgeous hack through the mountains. Highly recommended.

The experience was amazing.  The instructions were delivered with professionalism and good humour. ..our daughter was in safe hands for the entirety of the experience.  The horses were well loved and friendly and the trek we went on was a great adventure.  I would fully recommend here as the only place to go horse riding in Estepona.

Absolutely perfect! I went last month first for a 3 hour hack with friends – the more experienced riders and it was absolutely great! Discovered a whole new part of Estepona and the horses are great. Also the whole atmosphere – really friendly and welcome.

Thank you for a special day. The ponies were well looked after, we had a fun but also top class instruction. 14 year old son who isn’t bothered to do anything that doesn’t involve his Xbox even had a great time. We will be back next time we visit.

Elizabeth, April (Saddle Up)


A dream come true! During our 2 weeks long vacation in Estepona we visited the ranch several times. We all felt really welcomed.

Everything about it was amazing – Beautiful nature, sweet guide and gentle horses. Everyone should try it and see Spain’s nature from a horse back.

Amanda, August (Riders hack)


Great experience. My husband and I have little to no experience with horses, but wanted to try something new during a recent trip in Spain. We had the best time during the “Saddle Up”. Caroline was friendly, gave us a great intro course and took us all around the breathtaking countryside.

Wonderful people and lovely horses. I took my adult son and his girlfriend, neither of whom had really ridden before….really enjoyed themselves, so much so that they wanted to learn to ride. The stables is a very happy place.
Great value for money.

Saddle Up Experience – 5 stars!  Fabulous hours spent with Caroline and Paulina. We are complete beginners and the level was perfect for us. The trainers were so patient. A great mix of lessons and hacking. Will definitely return on our next holiday.

July (Saddle Up)


Such a great experience. We had the best time with the Saddle Up. Our family were all complete novices.  Caroline was amazing, she was so good with the very nervous 10 year old and he had the time of his life.  The horses were lovely and very clearly happy and looked after horses. Everyone we met at the stables were lovely. Smiling and super friendly. Views on horseback were incredible.

Vicki, February (Saddle Up)


I can highly reccommend this place for families with kids! The staff were very friendly and highly competent and they have a range of horses suitable for beginners to experts.

Jostein, July (Saddle Up)


Everything here is perfect. The people are so nice and friendly they make you feel like your part of the family. They have horses for all level riders, all really kind and in really good health. I joined them for a 3 hour hack and really loved it! The scenery was amazing and all riders and horses enjoyed so much.

May (Riders hack)


The Ranch is beautiful, well maintained and the horses are very well cared for. Me and my husband booked a private hack as I hadn’t ridden since I was about 8. The owner is fab and a lovely quiet horse. I couldn’t recommend this trip any more such a brilliant experience and a very well ran little organisation. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. 

Kim & Danny, July (Private hack)


 I’ll be back. 2 beginners and we went from scared of holding the horses to ride in the beautiful surrounding nature. Caroline & her friend made us feel so welcome & they understood exactly how to teach us and work with our fears.

Tine (Saddle Up)


Friendly and beautiful horses. Myself and my partner went for a hack today, beautiful countryside, really lovely, bulletproof horses. Thank you!

Steph, May (Riders hack)


We had a lovely experience. It was me my 10-year old daughter and my cousin, all with riding experience. We rode out in a fantastic environment with sheeps, hawks and great views. Can absolutely recommend this place to everyone!
