Spain - Los Alamos

As you ride you have views of the beaches of Cape Trafalgar and across to the coast of Africa. This is a quiet, peaceful part of the country which has so far escaped any mass tourism and you will be riding in rural Spain where life has remained unchanged for centuries.

Each day's ride will be different to include routes through the forest with its long sandy tracks, into the countryside along ancient drovers' trails and onto the long sandy beaches which stretch for over ten kilometres.

Normally between mid-June and mid-September riding close to the ocean’s edge is not allowed, but 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.

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.

This has been our best selling ride in Europe for the past four years and for good reason. The warm welcome extended to guests, the fun atmosphere, the well trained horses and the fabulous riding ensure guests often return again and again! You are really well looked after and there is some truly great riding along the coast.

Thursday is a rest day for the horses and you visit the Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez to see a display by the stallions and carriage driving. Later visit the school's carriage museum and stables and have a tapas lunch and sherry tasting.

Your home for the week is the lovely hacienda 'Jacaranda' named after the beautiful Jacaranda trees. It is set in spacious gardens with palm, cactus and fruit trees. All rooms are en-suite and the villa has a swimming pool (not heated). It also has a spacious dining area and comfortable lounge where you can relax in comfort after the day’s ride.

Ingredients are provided for you to make your own breakfast and the villa is stocked with a reasonable supply of beer, wine and spirits for the week. Dinners are either delicious home made food at the villa or meals out at small village restaurants.

Imogen says:

This centre-based ride is one of our most popular holidays. Ride down sandy forest tracks in the shade of the tree and gallop across the beach and along the waters edge.

My top tip:

I would definitely recommend packing some sunglasses; they will help protect your eyes not only from the sun but also from any sand being kicked up by the horse in front of you!
