Happy Trails

Happy Trails
Programme

This is a six night, five day riding holiday designed for those who share our passion for horses and wish to get to know this amazing part of Spain on horseback. If you have been looking for an amazing experience, you now have a holiday opportunity of a lifetime.

The programme also includes cultural excursions to the heart of Seville to view a typical Flamenco show and the world famous horse show in Jerez entitled “How the Andalusian Horses Dance” all whilst staying in one of the most beautiful medieval towns in the world.

The programme runs in the mornings which allows for free afternoon to rest or enjoy the many sights this area has to offer.

Our weight limit for this programme is 95kgs.

Who is this programme for?

The programme is designed for those think that trail riding is one of the best ways to have fun, make new friends and to see Spain from another angle whilst also improving their riding skills.

So although we are dressage centre, we understand that there are people who would much rather ride outside than in the arena and thus we have a holiday option for those too!

This programme is also ideal for those who feel that they are not yet riding fit enough to do a morning ride plus an afternoon lesson as we offer in some of our other programmes.

During your stay with us, you can relax in stunningly beautiful surroundings away from the stress of modern-day lifestyles and enjoy your equestrian mornings at our farm while leaving plenty of spare time in the afternoons to either relax or to discover this unforgettable part of the world.

Typically, our Happy Trails riders are adults, with no upper age restriction, and who are comfortable in a steady trot and canter, along open trails on a well mannered horse.

However, we regularly design bespoke programmes for less experienced or less confident riders as well as for accompanied children over 10. Please don’t hesitate to ask us to help you design a suitable programme that meets your criteria.

What is involved?

Where do you stay

Your accommodation is in a 4* hotel, complete with a swimming pool, nestled in the nearby medieval town of Carmona, one of the famous white villages of Andalucia.

Carmona is the oldest continually inhabited town in Europe and as you stroll through the narrow streets of the old town, you will feel and breathe the spirits of ancient cultures (Iberians, Visigoths, Phoenicians, Romans, Moors), in the innumerable examples of their architectural influence in the churches, towers, palaces and mansions as well as in the inherited customs.

Carmona is one of Europe’s hidden gems and is a destination in its own right. You will never tire of wandering the streets and will discover that its timeless beauty changes from sunrise to sunset, and then at night. Carmona takes on a magical glow that will leave you spellbound. With at least fifty six small cafes and bars, you will be spolied for choice when it comes to a bite to eat or a refreshing drink.
