  • Set arrivals
  • 4 to 7 nights / 3 to 5 days of riding | 3 to 4 hours riding per day | Nearest airport:Malaga
  • Weight limit: 13st (83 kg) (182 pounds)
  • Usual maximum: 10

As you ride you have views of the beaches of Cape Trafalgar and across to the coast of Africa. This is a peaceful part of the country which has escaped mass tourism – you will be riding in rural Spain.

Each day’s ride will be different. You will ride through the forest with its sandy tracks, and onto the beaches which stretch for over ten kilometres.

This is Spain and you are on holiday, so the day does not start too early. For most of the year there is an average of four hours in the saddle each day. This is broken up by lunch in small friendly country tavernas whilst the horses relax in the shade.

On the seven night Villa Based Ride you have the opportunity to visit the Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez. Here you see a display of traditional riding and carriage driving. Later you have the chance to visit the school’s on-site traditional saddlers and stately home, and have a tapas lunch and sherry tasting session in the city.

 

The horses are mainly Andalucian and Andalucian-Arab crosses. They are ridden in English tack. The weight limit for the Andalucian horses is 83 kg, but there are some horses suitable for experienced riders up to 100 kg.

You should be confident at all paces riding a forward going and responsive horse. The pace is varied and there are many opportunities for canters and gallops in the forest and along the beach. Beach riding is always subject to the tide conditions.

Normally riding close to the ocean’s edge is not allowed between mid-June and mid-September. However, Los Alamos has been granted a license to ride on the beach in the summer months providing they are on the beach early in the morning. On these mornings, you will stop for breakfast at a local café.

Accommodation is in the Hacienda Jacaranda. The bedrooms are all en-suite and have double beds (one with two double beds to make a twin room).

Single rooms are subject to availability at no extra cost.

The rooms are set in spacious private gardens of palm, cactus and fruit trees. There is a swimming pool (not heated), and the spacious dining area and lounge has an open fire, television, DVD player and music system.

Ingredients are provided for you to make your own breakfast in the morning. The villa is also stocked with a range of soft and alcoholic drinks for the week. Dinners are delicious home made meals at the villa, and lunch is taken at local bars.

Guest Review

The horses were fantastic. Rachel took care to match everyone with a suitable horse. I rode two, both of whom were forward going, but also fun sensible and good-natured. I really couldn’t have asked for more. Nothing wrong. I love the hard copy itinerary and the In the Saddle fabric pouch it comes in. When you book with In the Saddle you know you are going to have a good time.

Ride Report

Lois House
Los Alamos is perfect for single travellers and groups of friends alike. The social, relaxed atmosphere is why guests return year upon year. The horses are a pleasure to ride and the riding is fun, but also relaxing - just what a holiday is all about. The riding is suited to confident riders who are happy on forward going horses and are experienced at controlling horses over varying terrain, with other horses and riders around them.
