Welcome Divina

Welcome to the Ranch a new lady – Divina, with owner Catherine.

She’s rather gorgeous isn’t she?


Riding lessons Estepona

The greys were out in force this week for riding lessons Estepona. And riding in formation is harder than it looks!

Ranch polo lesson

A group of Ranch riders of all ages went on an afternoon trip away this week – to try polo for the first time!

We met our horses, had a brilliant polo lesson, then some practice out on the field and were then split into two teams to compete.

Afterwards we celebrated with a huge Argentinian BBQ, some drinks and a lot of laughter.

If you are a rider and want to come on the next polo trip, put your name on the list and come and give it a go.


Girls & their horses

These photos capture perfectly the relationship between girls and their horses.


Autumn hacks

It’s so beautiful up in the mountains at this time of year and the perfect temperature to enjoy some fabulous autumn hacks.

This is Alberto, he is 70 something and one of our regular riders when he is here in the cooler months. He is on his new favorite horse, Ringo. He has ridden most of the horses at the Ranch over the years.

Alberto, you are inspirational to us all!

Showjumping success

We are so proud of the showjumping success of our riders at a recent jumping competition – in all classes they excelled.

Our young riders Bobbi on Kiko and Jazmin (aged 12) on Rosie competed in a highly competitive field of over 25 riders, mainly adults, at 80cm and 1 m. Jazmin claimed her first rosette at 1 m height coming 4th. Hayley was competing with her young horse Lagri and earned their first rosette, 2nd in the 60cm class. And congratulations to Bobbi’s mum, Nikkola, who flew around the 60cm course. Nervous but fearless and very fast!

We love watching all our riders and horses progress through their jumping careers.

Happy hackers

We have been busy introducing beginners to our horses with our Saddle Up 2 hour experience for first timers.
And taking a lot of children through our fantastic one-to-one learn to ride package called Trot On.
Plus of course taking people out riding and enjoying the company of our many liveries on the trails.
Here you’ll see Nicola, a new rider, taking Ahitan (Arab) out for the first time with Sylvia and Lord.
