Sarah is originally from the New Forest and grew up around the wild ponies, with whom she fell head over heels in love. Any spare moment she could, she would spend with friends’ horses or in the forest and soon became the ‘go-to’ person for any horses with behavioural problems. When visiting friends in southern Spain, she decided it’d be even more fun riding in the warm! There’s no finer place to work with rescue horses, rehabilitating them in the mountains. The treks across the landscape are extraordinary, with views across to Africa, and getting up close with nature. The variety allows people to ensure that everyone from beginners to experienced equestrians have the ride of a lifetime. The riding centre is a few minutes from the pretty spa town of Lanjaron bursting with Moorish influences. People come here to drink the water which is said to contain minerals for eternal youth. Nearby is Orgiva, a busy market town with bustling tapas bars and small streets to discover.
