What you'll do

First, you will fill an info sheet that gives you some riding tips like the right position you should keep while on the horse. Then, in our small riding ring we will present each rider to the horse we´ve chosen for them according to their skills, knowledge and weight. Once mounted, you will receive a some instructions that will help you be at ease with your horse and manage by yourself once we´re out on the trail, though you will always be under the watchful eye of the guide who will take care of you during the whole excursion. So after a brief practice in the ring, we will go out to enjoy our outdoor experience in the Alpujarras.
Other things to note
This is a true outdoor experience! Although horses are animals and can sometimes have unpredictable reactions, you will find yourself in good hands, with experienced people who will know how to make you feel confident and tell you at all times what to do.

From the minute we arrived we felt very comfortable. Rafael and Paco were incredibly welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable and put us at ease. The trail riding was incredible and completely unexpected. The scenery and outlook were spectacular. We reached some high points where we could see the ocean beyond the Andalucía coastline. Rafael was very supportive during the ride and gave clear instructions on riding position etc for beginners such as ourselves. We highly recommend and would do the trail again when we’re back in the region.
