Spain - Sierra Nevada

Situated south from Granada, the Sierra Nevada is the highest mountain range in Spain. Explore this region of stunning natural beauty, riding through an ever changing landscape, no two valleys, ravines or summits alike.

Ride through one of the most beautiful regions of Spain. Little has changed here over the centuries, the mule and ox still pull the plough in the tiny terraced fields, the horse and mule still provide transport and the shepherd still tends his flock of sheep on the mountainside.

Starting from Bubion, the riding trails follow ancient Moorish drovers’ paths through steep valleys filled with Mediterranean almond and walnut groves up to high summer pastures irrigated by the snow melt. You pass through pretty white villages with narrow winding streets and ancient Moorish architecture. On some of the very steep descents it is necessary to lead the horses and these rides are not for those who suffer from vertigo.

You stay in small comfortable village inns and each day your luggage is taken ahead for you. During the day there will be several rest stops and a leisurely picnic lunch of locally cured hams and cheeses accompanied by freshly baked bread and salads. Evening meals give you the opportunity to sample the unique local cuisine and Spanish wines.

Explore idyllic mountains with stunning views on well schooled forward going Andalucian horses.

My top tip:

The horses are lovely to ride and Dallas is so interesting and full of stories. Spring is a great time to visit as it is nice riding weather.
