The beautiful and extremely diverse land of the Alpujarras ranges from pine forests and alpine meadows, wooded valleys, and gorges to almond, olive, and orange groves. La Alpujarra is the name given to the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range; no matter what the pace, the ride will be breathtaking, one of the best riding opportunities in Spain!

About the horses

The centre has 20+ well-trained and schooled horses varying in ages to suit the beginner and advanced rider. The horses range in height from the smallest horse at 12 hands to horses up to 17 hands and they are mainly Andalusians, PREs, Andalusian crosses with Arabs, and also Cobs and ponies. All horses are fully trained to be ridden either Western style or traditional style.

Please note that although the riding school has a wide range of horses to choose to ride, the horses on the working holiday, unfortunately, cannot take riders over 15 stones (95 kilograms). Moreover, the type of tack that is used is mainly English tack, although we do have some Western saddles.
