This was one of the most special holidays I've ever been on. I haven't travelled since 2020, and this was my first riding holiday so I was apprehensive about going by myself. My worries were quashed as soon as I met Jack and my fellow riders at Malaga airport. The quality of my stay was 5-star. We were treated to homecooked three-course meals in the evenings and Andrew and Rhiannon are such warm and knowledgeable hosts, who made me feel completely at ease the entire time. It was brilliant to be able to sit down together with them at the end of the day. The riding was also superb. Horses are well-cared for and happy. Rachel matched me with two gentle, polite horses that were quiet but responsive, and able to go up a gear if I asked them to. The highlight of the week was definitely galloping along the beach as the sun was rising. And to boot, I had a relaxing massage at the villa and had a fantastic day out in Jerez watching the 'Dancing Andalucians' with a sherry tasting to finish. I will be booking again.
