We have 12 horses, who are all very fit, healthy, very well cared for and well schooled. Each horse has a different personality and we always try to match each rider with the right horse. Our horses stand between 14.3 hh and 16 hh with a good appearance and will carry you with confidence and sure footedness through the Andalucian terrain. Our horses are the holiday...
A gorgeous PRE mare of the old baroque stamp
She has a gorgeous temperament and will turn heads
wherever she goes. She is tall but well proportioned
with the typical square look and extremely comfortable.
You will be sooo proud to ride her and if you respect
her lightness, she will take you to the end of the world
and back !
Amadeo is a mature gelding with a "busy" brain and a playful temperament, originally bred by the Spanish army.
He is a baroque type with classical beauty and is enthusiastic in his work. He collects his gaits with great ease and
feels like a rocking horse when ridden with lightness and sensitivity.
Our tall and elegant pedigree PRE mare who is the main lead hores. Rociera came to us as a young undernourished and inexperienced mare and has turned
into a stunning mature mare with an affectionate personality who absolutely adores people and is happy to have a go at any task given to her...
Our beautiful chestnut gelding named after the 'wind of the desert' ! He is a gorgeous mature red head who knows his job
better than anyone. Sirocco is a Spanish "3 sangres" or Anglo xHispano-Arab, combining the best attributes of these breeds -
he is a great ride and a real gentleman !
Gitana is a great Spanish mare of solid build who is very willing to work. She stands at 16hh and is a gorgeous darker grey. She has both the looks
and temperament of a typical Spanish horse, cuddly but with some spunk as well, a real showy mare !
One thing : she LOVES to eat, so hide your apple !!
A real boy with bags of character and all the charm of a beautiful proud Spanish horse. He grew up in the Malaga mountains and
has amazingly tough feet, hard legs and is extremely surefooted. He is fast, 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 ! Nothing much will worry her and she has the best temperament ever !
Savannah is a quality stunning HispanoArab mare. She is our princess and super sensitive. She has gone through too
many hands in her younger life, but she has settled in well with us. Savannah is a keen learner and with patience she is willing to tackle anything.
She is our pride and joy and does best with a relaxed and sensitive quiet rider.
Born and bred on the premises and despite her somewhat "spoilt up-bringing",is doing a fantastic job ! She now
is a mature mare with lots of seasons behind her but without ever having lost her 'spunk'.
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 !
Bandolero is our smallest but of course he has
a much bigger personality ;-). When we first got him,
his feet needed some urgent attention as his previous owner
used to do the shoeing himself. Needless to say that this
caused him to have sore feet.... Bandolero first
enjoyed a couple of months of recovery and we
then slowly prepared him as a guest horse for the
lighter and smaller riders. He has a few seasons under
his belt now and loves his work and the people who ride
him. He is very brave and is one of the lads in the paddock !
Etala is a purebred PRE mare, who came to us as her elderly owner could no longer take care of her and was not in a position to start her.
We have started groundwork with her and she is lightly backed....moving forward slowly....there will be regular updates on Etala. She is
stunning and a quick learner, so keep an eye on her !
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.
Shakira is an excellent lead horse and very brave with both Lusitano and Spanish blood in her veins !
She worked hard for us for more than 15 years and is now enjoying retirement - she is the biggest cuddler in the paddock.
He came to us as a youngster, born and raised in Coín. He is a true Spaniard, relaxed and smoking a cigar whilst walking through the countryside and taking everything in his stride. He has a great trot and canter and is as solid as a rock. A horse full of the blood of Spain :-)and Clare Fuller fell in love with him on her first holiday with us. She came back again and again to be with her Superman and after a good 7 years of hard work with us it was time to give him an easier life with Clare in Essex. He left us in July 2014 and has adapted very well to his new life as the King of Essex ! Enjoy Super and Clare ! xxxx
Chilches was named after the village he came from on the east Málaga coast, where he used to be kept in one of the front rooms of a village house! His life changed completely when he came to us and after a nervous start he now takes great pleasure in his work and is a forward solid ride. As many smaller horses do, he feels very important and thinks he is safe-keeper of the herd....... he has the biggest heart and used to be right up front all the way around ! He moved to the Netherlands where he is enjoying a great life with an easier pace. He is well loved and thorougly enjoys life !
Pepsi started work with us when she was just 4 years old and has been a great worker ever since, being a very popular horse amongst our guests. In July 2011 we sent her for retirement to Holland to spend the rest of her days being looked after Miranda's nieces Nelleke and Anne, who loved riding her and who made sure she had a lovely life, not being idle mind you, but having to work less hard. She has been a tremendous mare for us working hard for 10 years straight and she deserved it ! She is gorgeous and has given many people great rides over the years. Sadly she passed away in Spring of 2014 due to a virus she contracted....RIP dearest Pepsi, we won't forget you.....
Nikita, our proud ex-army mare, who has served us so faithfully for 8 years is now retired in the local area. She has been a fantastic horse and a great confidence giver to many of our guests in the past....
She gave us Bolero, son of local celebrity horse "Regalito", who passed away in 2009, after a colourful life with many Highschool performances in Coín !
Our horses are the holiday. We are sure that you will be impressed by the fitness, willingness and lightness of our horses. The Spanish horse has been a favourite for hundreds of years and they won't let you down !
