"Great horses, food, drink, accommodation and company, if you want a fun chilled week in good company go and stay with Giles and Miranda - everything else a bonus! Will be back for more!"
The past 10 days on your ranch have been a holiday Nicole, Patrick and myself, we will not easily forget. First of all because it was a long time ago, since we enjoyed a holiday abroad and - more importantly - the combination of relaxation, the quiet environment, adventure and the proximity of horses was .......

PRE. El macho.........!!
Fulanito IV is a pedigree Spanish stallion -
Pura Raza Española. He comes out of a very
classical Carthusian bloodline, which can be
traced back to the 15th century. He was bred by
the renowned Martinez Boloix stud, who have
produced many foundation PRE breeding stock.
Fulli (for short) is a very happy boy and he
will charm you for attention whenever you pass
A stunning mare of immense presence and natural collection. Shakirah came to us after having suffered a less fortunate life and she didn't trust people very much. Now she has worked hard for us for more than 10 years and is the biggest cuddler in the paddock. Shakira is an excellent lead horse and very brave with both Lusitano and Spanish blood in her veins !
Our tall and elegant pedigree PRE mare who is still very young. She is confirming her role as a new lead hores - with Shakira as her role model, now in her mid 20's. Rociera has a great temperament and is happy to have a go at any task given to her...
Our beautiful chestnut gelding…..named after the “wind of the desert” because he “flies over the ground” as fast and smoothly as the wind…….Sirocco is a Spanish "3 sangres" or Anglo-Hispano-Arab, combining the best attributes of these breeds and he is a great ride and a real gentleman !
Gitana is a beautiful young Spanish mare of solid build who is very willing to work. She stands at over 16hh and is dark roany grey. She has both the looks and temperament of a typical Spanish horse, cuddly but with some spunk as well, a realy showy mare !
Still young, with bags of character and all the charm of a beautiful proud Spanish horse. He grew up in the Malaga mountains and had been started far too young. He is a quick learner and pretty brave. He is very forward going and never gives up. Tío Pepe needs an experienced, gentle and sensitive rider. You will be proud to ride him !
A gorgeous bright bay half pedigree PRE mare, who loves to flirt with the boys. She is very comfortable ride, forward going but very steady and super safe ! She does like to splash in the rivers ;-) !!
Savannah is a quality stunning HispanoArab mare. She is still new to the group and learning her way. She has gone through too many hands in her young life, but she is settling in well. Savannah is a keen learner and with patience she is willing to tackle anything. She is our newest pride and joy and we will give her the space and time she needs to develop her potential.
Born and bred on the premises and despite her somewhat "spoilt up-bringing", she is doing a fantastic job in her work. Lucera has a great head - she will have a go at anything and doesn't tire easily.......a great and pretty mare and a real fun ride !
Gorgeous spunky Spanish X Arab (Hispano-arab) mare who loves her job and makes heads turn everywhere she goes ! She is very light to ride and never needs any encouragement to keep going - with her proud stallion like appearance, she gets noticed everywhere she goes.....
Bolero, the son of Nikita and Regalito, learning his work with zest and enthusiasm !
Bandolero is the newest
addition. When we first got him, his feet needed
some urgent attention as his previous owner had
shod him himself. Needless to say that this
caused him to have sore feet.... Bandolero first
enjoyed a couple of months of recovery and we
are now slowly trying to prepare him as a future
guest horse for the lighter and smaller riders.
He loves people and is pretty brave and looks
like a smaller version of Tío Pepe with whom he has
made friends already....
