Alpujarra Ride

5 star rating   14 September 2019

The alpujarra ride is amazing with breath taking views! The pace is sometimes slower, due to the terrain but this way you can take it all in without breaking your (horses) legs.
It is amazing how these horses are in the best shape, are well cared for and are the perfect guides for this rough terrain.

In the group there were a few riders who could not keep up with the pace. Therefore we had to skip a lot of canters (several days). Dallas tried to solve this as best as possible, giving them a day off or splitting the group in 2.

The horses were delightful and extremely fit. My horse Cordy had such a wonderful temperament. The riding was through some of the most beautiful terrain I've ever seen and Dallas, Lisa and Jeanette were so much fun.

A lot of the terrain is steep and uneven, so a lot of the riding was at walking pace. This was fine as it allowed time to appreciate the breathtaking surroundings, talk and take photos. Most days also had sections where we could trot and canter. The horses we were given were all generally well behaved and incredibly sure footed. It was amazing to work with horses that were confident on steep and rocky paths.

Yes. It was an excellent trip with long days spent riding in the Sierra Nevada. The horses were able to negotiate very difficult terrain - climbing over rocks and walking calmly down slippery hillsides. The horses are extremely well cared for and schooled. There was a significant amout of getting on and off and the horses allowed you to do this easily.

I felt intimidated at first because of the level of riding of the other riders. I am a beginner and the others were all very experienced. Thanks to the tips of Dallas and team my riding skills drastically improved in the course of the 6 days of riding.

The riding was as described in the brochure and on the website. It was not fast because the terrain did not permit this, but we did have at least one long canter every day. The scenery was magnificent, the horses superb (my beautify horse Maximo was a real gentleman, and was very patient with me when I was having to lead him down tricky rocky obtain passes), and even the weather was fantastic - T-shirt weather, while the UK was whipped by wind and rain!
