The riding was as described and met expectations - majority was at a walk which was very relaxing with a trot and canter on the first day then at least one canter on every other day.

The food was delicious and plentiful! Mamen was an excellent host and the tapas were a welcome treat mid morning and the homemade paella and tortilla were definite highlights.

This was a relaxed break on wonderful horses. I rode Trebol who had a relaxed but forward going walk and was excellent ascending and descending the mountain trails. She had a great canter and was extremely well mannered letting me hug and kiss her, it was a shame she didn't fit in my suitcase! 🙂 The scenery was beautiful and it helped we had gorgeous weather! Be prepared to see a lot of cows and you will hear them with their bells! The accommodation was comfortable and welcoming. Mamen and Emilio were excellent hosts and Mamen's food was a highlight - the best paella I've ever eaten! The fact we had lunch at a picnic table with table cloth etc no matter where in the mountains we were really gave a sense of luxury 🙂 Their dog is one of the friendliest I've met too and I am not a dog lover!!

[ITS Comment – We are so pleased that you had a wonderful holiday. We agree that the horses are lovely to ride and well schooled, the food excellent and of course Brasas is the sweetest collie dog who leads the way! This is a relaxing holiday, slower paced and allows you the chance to get away from the stresses of life.]
