What you'll do

Learn to ride on this lovely 7 night / 8 day beginner or intermediate horse riding holiday set in South-West Majorca, with daily horse riding lessons and fun horse back riding in Majorca's stunning countryside; suitable for those with less than 3 years of continuous riding experience.

This rural family-run equestrian school has found the perfect balance between fun excursions and daily beginner/intermediate riding lessons, giving you a newfound competency in riding and handling a horse.

Home to nearly 100 well-trained horses of different sizes, ages and personalities, the school has the perfect horse for you, no matter what you’re looking for or your skill level.

During the course of this 7 night/8 day horse riding holiday, you will develop riding skills, go on exciting excursions in the surrounding countryside and learn some basic skills on caring for and handling a horse. The class sizes are small and intimate and with a maximum of 6 students to instructor, it’s guaranteed that you’ll get all of the individual attention that you need.

Riding lessons are aimed at those with less than 3 years riding experience and will focus on developing your skills in the three main horse-riding disciplines: walk, trot and canter. Many guests will also have the opportunity to gallop during their stay.

The riding school’s extensive equipment includes a lovely set of horseboxes and a minibus. This allows guests to ride in some of the most beautiful rural settings throughout the island. No matter how close or far, the highlights of Mallorca are within your easy reach.

With daily riding lessons and excursions, you have a busy schedule ahead. When you have a moment, why not hire a bike from the school and explore the local area, or pamper yourself in the on-site wellness centre. Some guests like to hire a car, exploring the island a little more independently by visiting the historic city of Palma or popping down to the nearby beach.

Improve your fundamental riding skills in a breath-taking location under the sun. Get fit, have fun and surprise yourself. With daily, intimately sized classes focussing on developing the main riding disciplines, you’ll find yourself riding with confidence and skill in a matter of days.
