Our Horses at Hacienda Horses

Our aim is to offer Horse Riding holidays for all ages and abilities, in a truly wonderful setting in which to relax and ride our lovely horses from our very own riding school.

We are so lucky to have such beautiful ponies and horses.  Some of them have been with us for a long time and they love nothing more than to go for a hack.
