Spanish Riding Holidays
What better way is there of enjoying Spain s nature and wildlife than with Spanish Riding Holidays?
Horses are very much part of Spanish culture - particularly in the southerly region of Andalucia - and it is still possible to ride through fantastic landscapes, combining nature with ancient traditions ... be it history or spirituality.
Spain has a wealth of wild, open spaces and offers a great diversity of landscapes - pine and eucalyptus forests ... beaches and dunes ... marshlands and reserves ...
Below you will find a mix of Spanish Riding Holidays covering various areas of Spain, lasting from half-a-day to eight days, and at a variety of prices.
First on the list appear four specialized riding tours of about one week s duration.
One is based in southern Spain, one in central Spain, and the other two concentrate on the pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela - one starting in northern Spain and the other in Portugal.
Following on from these tours are a couple of half-day riding excursions in southern Spain.
The first is from the well-known Cortijo La Corbera, outside Seville.
The second is at the new private riding center in the Marbella Club Golf Resort.
Although the final excursion on the list does not include actual riding, I have included it because it is horse-orientated and great value for money.
It starts in Seville, is a very full day out and includes the marvelous "Equestrian Fantasy" show at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art.
