Unique Two Week Horse Riding Holiday

Great Value Riding Holiday

Join us on our help and ride holiday and enjoy a two week long adventure helping bring our horses back into work after their winter break. These holidays are an economical way of enjoying a riding holiday by helping care for the horses. During your time here you will enjoy superb horse riding and the wonderful Spanish climate. We are based on the edge of a forested national park, with fantastic beaches close by. On our help and ride holiday there is riding every day through the forest, with at least one unforgettable day ride spent on the beach.

Our help and ride holidays are for two weeks periods during winter and spring. There are two places available per starting date.

How you will help us

Our two week self catering holiday is mostly riding based helping us bring the horses back to full fitness. This is a relaxing holiday, and each of the ten help and ride days starts at 09:30 and finishes at 14:30, with two riding sessions of 1.5 hours spent riding through the forest. You will help us feed the horses and prepare your own horses to ride, in total five hours each morning is spent with the horses. The afternoons are always left free so that you can relax and explore our beautiful area.
