Arrive in to Murcia or Alicante airport. If you choose not to hire a car we can arrange for you to be collected and taken to your accommodation.
This area of Southern Spain is officially the sunniest region in the country so bring your sun glasses and sun cream! The ranch is located approximately 20 minutes from Murcia airport and nestles in the National Park. Upon arrival you will be shown to your traditional cabin - the cabins have two bedrooms, one double and one triple, kitchenette and living room with wood stove. For larger parties the farmhouse is available - Casa Rurales. Accommodation is onsite with outside verandas where you can sit in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine. Breakfast is provided for you in the accommodation. Lunch will be taken at the ranch in between rides and you will have your dinner cooked for you in the evening.
This afternoon you will have the opportunity to ride for the first time, beginners may start with a lesson whilst experienced riders can venture out along the many paths and tracks that lead from the ranch. On a 7 night break you will get 6 full days of riding. If your flight arrives early and departs late you can purchase extra rides on site.
Today, depending on your riding ability and preference, you will have a lesson and a ride out in the countryside or a day trek when you can expect to enjoy fabulous views. The hacks/treks follow a variety of different routes which include spectacular riding through virgin countryside as you cross mountain gorges that open up into vast areas of totally unspoilt countryside.
Picnics are included for longer rides or village pit stops may be included if preferred at local tapas bars where the horses wait in a shady paddock (approx 10€ extra pp).
The terrain is primarily on tracks and paths through The National Park. There are good oportunities for faster riding too. There are 25 horses from ponies suitable for children to a range of horses to suit both adult novice and more experienced riders. Full board is included each day.
This morning after breakfast, you will continue with your riding plan, beginners may have another lesson and after that a ride out or the more experienced riders can enjoy a day trek with picnic. If you prefer to just ride out that is fine too; all breaks will be tailor-made for the individual so no matter your ability level from beginners to experienced riders you can rest assured you will have a programme to suit you. Riding out will be in small groups of similar ability but of rarely more than a handful of riders.
Day 4 - 7
Full board accommodation and all riding will be offered throughout your holiday. A standard 3 night break will include 3 full days of riding.

Sadly today is the last day of your holiday, you will be returned to the airport for your flight home.
