A Weekend Of Horse Riding To Remember

Superb Horse Riding.

Why not join us on our full board equestrian five day break and escape to the unspoilt Costa de la Luz. During your weekend here you will enjoy superb horse riding and the wonderful Spanish climate. Our trails provide fantastic horse riding on golden beaches and through unspoilt forests. Each day is unique and includes steady canters along sandy tracks and fantastic gallops along firebreaks. Beach riding day is unforgettable, a dream come true! Our horse riding five day break is a perfect way to enjoy the superb off road horse riding of the Costa de la Luz.


Unbeatable Horse Riding Adventure

Your holiday base for the weekend is the seaside town of Barbate. The town provides a fantastic setting for a horse riding holiday destination. As well as superb horse riding and a fantastic beach, Barbate has a lovely promenade. With ice-cream parlours, bars and restaurants, the promenade is ideal for relaxing after horse riding. Barbate also has a great town centre with shopping, a lovely town square and a superb fish and fruit market. During your weekend with us you will experience the many delights that our horse riding offers and be able to enjoy the adventure of a typical Spanish town.

Luxurious Hotel Accommodation.

We use the comfortable and well-appointed beach front hotel Adiafa for our accommodation. The hotel is excellent, and being family run is very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is located only 50 metres from the sea front, and has spacious twin-bedded rooms with on-suite bathroom. The hotel is fully air-conditioned and has free wi-fi internet connection. Solo travellers are allocated their own bedroom and guests travelling together are allocated shared bedrooms.


Friendly, Welcoming Groups.

Our full board horse riding vacations are ideal for both single and group bookings. The groups are kept small and create a great friendly atmosphere. You will meet like-minded people and have new friends by the end of the holiday. The rides are led by ourselves, Steve and Caroline, and the maximum group size is kept to six. Our aim is to provide a value for money all-inclusive horse riding vacation that is a dream come true. All your needs will be well taken care of so that you can enjoy a stress-free holiday.
