All of the packages offered are flexible in terms of duration of stay and start and finish days. We require a 30% deposit to secure dates with final balance being due 8 weeks prior to departure.  We can cater for beginner to advanced riders but please note that fast beach riding is only suitable for those secure in walk, trot and canter.


The horses and ponies are beautifully cared for and there are suitable mounts for all ages and experiences. Rides will be exciting but safe and beginners or nervous/less experienced riders will be encouraged and made to feel at ease riding well behaved horses.


Typically a week long riding holiday will have around 13 hours of riding in 6 days (more available).  There are a host of beautiful country rides to enjoy including trails to a natural lake and a stunning beach ride, all off road within the Natural Park. We can also put together a program tailored to your riding level with a different trail each day.


When you are not riding you are welcome to help with the horses, have a swim in the pool or relax on the sun terrace. We offer transfers to the beach too and the local village is well worth a visit! Surf and yoga lessons can be included at a discounted price. Dolphin & bird watching and hiking plus spa visits are also popular in this area.
