Horse Riding Week To Remember

Unbeatable Riding

During your full board horse riding holiday with us you will enjoy superb riding, have time to sunbathe on the beach and join in socialising over dinner. Our trails provide two fantastic days of beach horse riding, and three days of great forest riding. Each day is unique and includes lovely steady canters along sandy tracks and fast canters / gallops along firebreaks. Our horses are well schooled with kind manners and go at a pace our riders ask of them. Beach riding days are unforgettable, a dream come true! Between canters the pace is relaxed, making the most of this incredibly peaceful forest. Our horse riding holidays provide superb off road horse riding for competent riders.


Luxurious Hotel Accommodation.

We use the luxurious 3* Adiafa Hotel for our accommodation. The hotel is excellent and is extremely well appointed. Located only 50 metres from the sea front the hotel is family run and is very friendly and welcoming. All the bedrooms are spacious twin bedded rooms with on-suite bathroom, air-conditioning and wi-fi internet connection. Single bookings are given their own bedroom and dual bookings share.

More Than A Horse Riding Adventure.

Your holiday base for the weeks horse riding is the seaside town of Barbate. The town provides a fantastic setting for an all year round holiday destination. The hotel is just a few metres from the town's beautiful 1km long fine sandy beach, ideal for relaxing and sunbathing after the day's horse riding has finished. However Barbate is much more than superb riding and a beautiful beach. The town has a lovely promenade with ice-cream parlours, bars and restaurants. In the centre there is shopping, a lovely town square and a superb fish and fruit market. During your week with us you will experience our superb horse riding and the adventure of living in a typical Spanish town.


Friendly, Welcoming Groups.

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

Superb Accommodation

Rooms with Balcony and Sea View

The hotel is west facing and receives the afternoon sun. Rooms with a spacious balcony and sea view are available with the payment of a supplement. These balconies are perfect for sunbathing or chilling out watching the sun set. The basic cost of the holiday includes a room without a balcony and sea view.


Solo Travellers

Whenever possible during low and mid season solo travellers will be allocated a room without a balcony to themselves free of charge. There is a supplement that can be paid to guarantee a room for single use. During high season a single person supplement will be charged and guarantees a single use room without a balcony.


Shared Bookings

During low and mid season two guests travelling together will be allocated a shared twin room. Shared bookings may pay a supplement to guarantee a single room without a balcony and should be paid by both guests. Odd number of guests on a booking will be allocated shared rooms and one single use room without charge. During high season all single rooms will be charged the single person supplement.

Superb Food Options.

The vacations would not be complete without good food and drink. Breakfast is in the hotel's cafeteria and relaxed lunches are after the ride in traditional 'tapas' bars. Dinners are taken at quality restaurants in Barbate. All meals are typical ‘Andaluz’ with meat and fish dishes being served. Vegetarians can be catered for.


Optional Extra

A trip to Jerez de la Frontera to see the Royal Spanish riding school is available. After the display there is time to visit either the Museo del Enganche or the tack shop nearby. Lunch is taken at a typical Spanish bar in Jerez.


Non Riders

Non riders are welcome, and the area is a good base for non riding vacations with many other sports available. The local public transport is good and information can be provided on local places of interest.
