Contraviesa Ride

5 star rating   23 October 2021

Jane who has been on 14 In The Saddle rides. Very enjoyable week riding a beautiful horse in fabulous country side | It was a privilege to be able to ride such a high quality horse for the week. The pace of the ride was completely suited to the terrain. The countryside was stunningly beautiful and varied and we were blessed with sunny, warm and dry weather.

Lone who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Fantastic horses, well-schooled and impressively safe on their hoof in all kinds of terrain. Got a perfectly matched horse in beautiful Tello.
The pace is as described, mostly walk. A little trot / canter a couple of days. Could have wished for a little more pace on a couple of the stretches. But of course "better safe than sorry".

Sarah who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. La Alpujara | The riding and the horses were fabulous. The horses were beautifully schooled and a pleasure to ride. The terrain was very varied from mountainous, lovely fresh air to almond orchards being harvested.

Laure (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Amazing experience! | 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.

Emma who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Awe-inspiring scenery | 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.

Philip who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Mountain trekking with a lovely horse and good company | 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.
