On a normal day, we start riding at 10 in the morning, after a well-deserved rest in the charming places where we spend every night and after a quiet breakfast. Usually the group accompany us in the preparation of the horses, you can help to catch the horses from the fields where they have spent the night, feed them, brush them and saddle up before your breakfast. Always, of course, with our supervision and help.
In the morning, you will ride about 4 hours with a short tapas-break in the middle of the morning, Mamen is waiting for us with the support van in the least expected place, with typical Spanish tapas, such as Serrano ham, Manchego cheese, olives, nuts, etc. and something to drink.
After the break, we ride to the lunch place. A luxury picnic is waiting for us in the most quite, peaceful and beautiful spot in our way with every details to enjoy a comfortable and delicious meal, 3 courses, starter, main and dessert, good Spanish red and white wines, coffee and chocolates & biscuits. The star dishes are the paella and our bbq cooked at the spot!
The stop for lunch is about 2 hours, with time to enjoy the pic-nic and little siesta after lunch.
In the afternoon we ride around another 2 hours until we get the next accomodation for delicious local dinner and night.
A support van follows the group during the whole week, meeting us in the morning, for tapas-breaks, lunches, at night and also to move your luggage, so you have access to your luggage during the day at least 3 times or when is necessary. It is not necessary to carry anything on the horse. You have small saddle bags in front of the saddles for small things, like a water bottle, sunscreen, camera, mobile, etc. The service along the rides is outstanding.
Every ride is personally guided by the experienced Emilio. He is expert rider and has a special ability to match his horses with riders. He is leading the groups with his confident and well-mannered horses that are a pleasure to ride, you will always feel very safe. He is English speaker.
The peace of riding is moderated with walk, trots and canters mostly every day, depends on the itineraries. Usually, when the terrain allows for a safe canter, we canter. In the mountains, in many areas the terrain does not allow for trotting or cantering so we enjoy walking with breathtaking views around.
We have rides of 5, 6 or 7 days riding.
We use finest quality English saddles and tack with silicon seat saver. All the tack is in excellent conditions, very comfortable for horses and riders. The horse tack quality is outstanding.
