Designed for riders that are confident and can control a horse out of doors at a canter, the holiday is a complete equestrian experience, and provides exciting horse riding for the experienced rider. During your full board holiday with us you will enjoy fantastic riding, have time to sunbathe on the beach and join in on some great socialising over dinner. Our riding provides two superb days of beach horse riding, and three days of fantastic forest riding. Each day is unique and includes steady canters along sandy tracks and fantastic gallops along firebreaks. Beach riding days are unforgettable, a dream come true! Although the gallops are fast our horses are well mannered and go at a pace that our riders ask of them. In-between canters we move on at a relaxed pace enabling you to make the most of this incredibly peaceful forest. Our horse riding holidays provide superb off road horseback riding for guests that can ride. You will also be able to chill out and take in the tranquillity of the forest with its superb views. With a fantastic accommodation package in a beach front three star hotel, and our responsive and fit horses you will have a horse riding holiday to remember.

This holiday is on a full board basis and your accommodation is a three star hotel. The hotel is friendly and welcoming and is located on the sea front in a Spanish fishing town on Spain's unspoilt Costa de la Luz, just a few meters from the town's beautiful 1km long fine sandy beach. The town has an ambiance that is unique and the friendly local people will soon make you feel very welcome. Tere is also a lovely old quarter that takes you back to how Spain used to be before tourism arrived. For the more energetic of you after riding there are lovely walks as well as shopping in the town centre and there is a lovely promenade with ice-cream parlours, bars and restaurants. As well as all this there is a lovely town square and a superb fish and fruit market. During your week you will experience the many delights that the horse riding offers and also be able to enjoy the adventure of living in a typical Spanish town.

Your hosts in the evening take you to great Spanish restaurants that serve lovely Spanish food. The evening meal is completely hassle-free as they will be with you throughout the meal to translate your requirements to the Spanish waiters. The holiday is a group affair, and so you will have the company of the other guests in the evening. Barbate has a good nightlife with bars and disco bars open throughout the year. After dinner groups retire to one of these bars to spend the rest of the evening together and discuss the excitement of the day.
