What You'll Do

At this countryside equestrian retreat in beautiful Majorca you will find a rare blend of excitement and tranquillity where you can enjoy authentic Mediterranean cuisine, attentive service, amazing horse riding trails and friendly expert guidance and tuition.

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.

During the course of this 7 night/8 day horse riding holiday, you will improve your riding skills, go on exciting excursions in the surrounding countryside and have the opportunity to take dressage and show jumping tuition. 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.

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 riding skills in a breath-taking location under the sun. Increase your fitness, have fun and surprise yourself. With daily, intimately sized classes focussing on developing your skills, stunning long mountain trails on horseback to technical riding lessons in the indoor arena, this is a varied mix of great activities for experienced riders.
