The inimitable Andalucian countryside surrounding Frigiliana and Torrox provides the perfect environment for horse back riding. Our stable of hand picked and well schooled horses are provided by the well known local Doma Vaquera trainer Leo Villena, who will ensure you have a wonderful riding experience, and want to return for more!

Accompanied horse riding and treks are available for beginners and experienced alike, and concentrate on the stunning mountain areas of Torrox, Frigiliana and Nerja.

The well cared for horses are a mix of Pure Spanish (Pura raze Espanol) breeds and īSpan Arabe,  (Spanish Arab) We also have ponies for younger riders.

Rides vary from gentle routes of one to two hours to more challenging endurance treks and the fun also begins at Feria time where we ride all day at the local white village fiestas. (Ladies Flamenco dresses are available for those who would really like to get into the role)! 

One Hour ride: 25e
