Spain is one of the most popular destinations for holidays in Europe with beautiful national parks and superb beaches. We are located on the southwestern Atlantic coast, the unspoilt Costa de la Luz, at the centre of the nature reserve Parque Natural de La Breña de Barbate. The nature reserve is large and pine forested, a perfect destination for horse riding holidays. The pine forest is cool and shady, ideal for the warm summers that we have here. Beach riding days are a dream come true, with expanses of golden sand stretching out before you. With high quality hotel accommodation and our fit, well-schooled and responsive horses, our holidays are at a very high standard. We have lived here running equestrian holidays for almost 30 years and offer some of the best riding available.
With warm summers and mild winters, the region is an all-year-round destination. During summer you can sunbathe from May to October, with only t-shirts being required day and night. The winter sun is cooler with pullovers during the day and a warm jacket at night. Our equestrian packages are for riders that can control a horse out of doors at canter. Non-riders are welcome, and there is plenty to see and do in the area.
On our full board holidays we use the comfortable, friendly, and family run Hotel Adiafa. Located only 50 metres from the beach the hotel has great facilities, with some rooms having a balcony and sea view, ideal for relaxing on after horse riding. Barbate is a lovely town with a beautiful seafront and in the town centre there are many shops to enjoy walking around. Evening meals are taken in typical Spanish restaurants that provide tasty Spanish cuisine, and after the meal you can relax in one of the bars on the seafront. Your English hosts and guides are ourselves, Steve and Caroline, and we ensure that guests are well looked after.
More about the accommodation....
While here you will experience golden beaches and tranquil pine forests with fantastic panoramic views. All our rides include lovely canters along sandy forest tracks, unforgettable gallops along forest firebreaks, and fantastic beach canters and gallops on beach riding days. Of course, this is only part of the story as there is plenty of time to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the forest and beaches while meandering along on your horse. You will leave us with many wonderful memories and a few extra friends.

There is plenty to do in the area for non riders especially with a hire car. The historic town of Vejer de la Frontera is only 11kms away. Los Caños de Meca and Cape Trafalgar are well worth a visit and Cadiz is only an hour's drive away. If a more active non riding holiday is required, walking in the national park is wonderful, bike hire is available, scuba diving courses can be arranged, and golf is available just up the road at Montenmedio. On those days where relaxing is all that is wanted there is always the beach at Barbate.
