Horse Riding Holidays 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 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.

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 equestrian holidays 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 six 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.

Adiafa Balcony Rooms with 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.


Shared Bookings

Two guests travelling together will be allocated a shared twin bedroom. For three or more guests on a booking, shared twin and triple rooms will be allocated. All triple rooms have a balcony and sea view and the balcony upgrade for a triple use room will not be applied. A supplement can be paid by guests to guarantee single use bedrooms if preferred.


Solo Travellers

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.

Superb Food Options.

The holidays would not be complete without good food and drink. Buffet breakfasts are available at the Adiafa, and lunches are taken after the ride in traditional 'tapas' bars. Dinners are at quality restaurants in Barbate. All meals are typical ‘Andaluz’ with meat and fish dishes being served. Vegetarians can be catered for.


Hotel Adiafa Breakfast.

The hotel Adiafa has a buffet breakfast available for guests. Breakfasts can be prebooked with payment of a supplement, or if preferred can be paid for locally while you are here.
